    I can't say enough about Dr. Thornton. I had a c section a few years ago and had an awful experience with the anesthesiologist! I recently had my second kiddo and Dr. Thornton was the anesthesiologist. He was absolutely amazing!!! I was so anxious and scared but he comforted me and did a wonderful job on my spinal!! I highly recommend asking for him for surgery!!
