Patient Comments (2)
Meriden, CT |
I was very hesitent to take my 3 year old to the eye doctor. My son is slightly speech delayed so communication can sometimes be an issue. However I knew there was a problem and it had to be done. I was very relieved that I had chosen Dr. Thornquist. He was excellent and patient with my son and my son took to him very quickly considering he is usually shy. Thornquist and his staff are incredible and very thourogh. We will be continuing our care with him!

I have been a patient of Dr. Thornquist for approximately 3 years, and I could not be more pleased with him and his staff. I have found Dr. Thornquist to be unlike any of the doctors that I have used in that he will take all the time to thoroughly explain any aspect of you examination and treatment. In fact, he took even more time to discuss another medical question completely unrelated to my eye examination. I only wish I could find doctors in other fields like him.
