What People Say About Dr. Robert Thornsberry, MD

My 85 year old mother fell and broke her hip today, February 20, 2017. She has been a patient of Dr. Thornsberry for many, many years. She truly has thought the world of him, telling anyone, and everyone how wonderful he is, referring anyone in need of care. Well today our opinion of the great Dr Thornsberry has been shattered. When the hospital called to tell him she had broken her hip, they were informed he would not take the case. Excuse me???? I must be confused?? Now we are here seeing ????

He's an amazing doctor I just wish he wasn't in and out of the room so quick. His nursing staff is the best I've ever seen
