Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Thornton IV "I have always tried to help patients learn how they can help themselves.  Controlling the things that you can control can go a long way towards being healthy.  I believe in the Golden rule and try to treat my patients like I would want to be treated.  Staying on time with my schedule is one of the most important ways that I try to do this.  You shouldn't have to spend hours at the doctor's office.  I feel that is one of the main reasons that people avoid going to the doctor, even when they should."
