Dr. Thornton is great, he truly understands and respects his patients feelings. Going through HPV for me has been rough but Dr. Thornton and his assistant Cookie in the Shelton office always make me feel welcome and generally make me feel welcome and comfortable. When I had surgery a year ago i had a speedy recovery and minimal pain if any. He really knows what he is doing and I recommend him to anyone looking for a wholistic doctor.

Never felt like he had any real concern for my condition. First meeting was in his office (not a clinical room) where he showed me a low quality copy (like a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy) to discribe what might be going in with me. Never did an exam of my recrum! After 3 visits he reluctantly exams me!
