Great first visit, He took the time to do a thorough exam and explained the results in great detail. My visit lasted two hours. Unheard of in these days.

Dr.Thurston takes the necessary amount of time to make sure he is providing the best care possible in the best way possible. I am so grateful to have found such a proficient doctor!
in Richmond, VA |
Dr. Thurston is exceptional! He is extraordinarily thorough with his examination and explanations. I have never had a doctor who takes as much time as he does to analyze and explain my condition. He never cuts the visit short and always takes the time to answer all of my questions. He is also very honest and forthright about my prognosis and options. I genuinely appreciate his knowledge and care. None of the other Neuro-Ophthalmologists I've seen could hold a candle to him!
