I have an arthritic knee with a torn meniscus. I was able to get an inexpensive MRI just down the hall from the Dr's office, then had a follow-up appt with the doctor. Dr. Thornton offered me options, and we were able to have that discussion and make a good choice. So far so good! This Dr. knows exactly what he is doing with orthopedics.

My mother went to him with a fractured knee from work. He was rude, dismissive and when she inquired about her feet which had been injured when she was hauled off the ground, he responded with sign language. Of course he did not know the particulars because he did not bother to ask what happened. He refuses to respond to communication, even when it is a certified letter except to send her back to the original provider who knows nothing about orthopedics No good for Workers Comp.

My wife’s appointment was for today at 3:30 and it’s 5:00 and the doctor still hasn’t seen her. We even got here at 3 to fill everything out. No communication, no sympathy or anything for taking so long. What’s the purpose of scheduling an appointment

Dr Thornton has done knee surgery on my wife and knee and shoulder surgery on me. He is an excellent surgeon and his office and bedside manner is wonderful. His practice is setup to do all the X-rays and MRIs you’ll need. Dallas is lucky to have him.

Two years ago Dr. Thornton operated on my left elbow tendon. The tendon had a huge hole in it that was extremely painful. Dr. Thornton repaired it and I was able to play golf again. I have not experienced any pain or discomfort since the surgery.
