Patient Comments (4)
in Dorado, NO REGION |
I think he is a very smart, competent and extremely experienced Doctor. I would highly recommend him if you want a Doctor that knows what he is doing . He is not a sugar coat kind of Doctor, which I actually prefer. I want to know what the facts are and the best course of action for treating my daughter. I like him so well that I fly my 2 year old in from Puerto Rico every 3 months just to see him. I have the option of flying her to see anyone in the world and I take her to Dr. Thorton.

He was obnoxious and refused to listen to concerns. He also appears to be in the pocket of big pharma considering the way he responds to the negative side effects of his pet medications. He also has a horrible rapport with children. I do not recommend.
in Burleson, TX |
Difficult to talk to. Came off as arrogant. Refused to see us because he overscheduled his day and did not tell us until we drove 30 miles and navigated the new check in system.
in Flower Mound, TX |
Rude and mumbled to my wife and daughter that the office visit is a waste of his time once he determines it has nothing to do with my daughter's thyroid as referred to by our primary pediatrician.
