Great Dr.
When the Dr is late more than 5 min I should be notified. Asking the patient to sign up 15 min prior to the appointment is a waste of people's time. Specially since Doctors are late. The patients should be informed the estimated time of arrival of the doctor so they know what to do with their time.

Dr. Thornton is personable, has a casual yet professional and unhurried approach.
On this specific visit, I was particularly anxious about the treatment. I verbalized this and she respectfully acknowledged my anxiety and diligently tried to ensure my comfort by performing slowly, talking through everything to manage my expectations, checking in on me, and doing so with kindness and not judgment (e.g. dismissive of my feelings). With past providers, I've had very bad experiences for this specific treatment, and she was a comforting exception that day. I was extremely grateful and it heightened my respect for her as a compassionate professional.

I felt validated that I had made an excellent choice when I chose Lorna Thornton as my PCP. I am happy with her as my PCP and anticipated an excellent relationship between me as a patient and her as my doctor.
Dr. Thornton is an good care provider. I need to have my ears washed out and we discussed waiting until I feel better to have water placed in my ears b/c of the cough and cold I had been going through these past 5-6 weeks. At the end of the visit Dr. Thornton just walked out of the room to see another patient, I thought she was coming back and she did not, she was off to the next patient, all b/c of time constraints between patients. She did mention this to me but we really did not say good-bye.
She's always good.

Dr. Thornton is wonderful. Warm, friendly, experienced and easy to talk to.
Dr. Thornton was very considerate of my situation, asked good investigative questions, and took the action I hoped would occur. She was knowledgeable, caring, and very professional. Her follow-up review of the x-rays was informative and reassuring. I was especially impressed with her desire to have a sports medicine Dr. see me and her assistance in arrangement an appointment with referral Dr. the next day.
she exceeded all expectations
Care provider is very warm, friendly, considerate, and open to listening. She makes you feel relax.
Lorna went out of her way to find Epipen for me, locating a Pharmacist that had one in stock and transferring my prescription there. This was a big relief after CVS told me all their pharmacies had stocked out over the last two months.
Dr. Thornton was exceptionally accommodating in squeezing me into what must have been her lunch hour because I had an urgent need for a special prescription for a conditin that appeared suddenly. She was extrordinarily understanding about my 12 minute tardiness and went out of her way to arrange for the medication to be dispensed as soon as possible. My regular Internist was off that day.
I do not like going to the doctor. I do not feel conventional American medicine is good for preventative medicine. Things like nutrition and exercise are not talked about our encouraged nearly enough. That being said Dr. Thornton was amazing. Although her healing practice may not align with how I want to heal she was accommodating and thoughtful of my beliefs. I truly appreciate her not dismissing my diet (plant based) or use of herbs (tea tree oil for fungus) and not pushing me to use medicines I have had bad experiences with (steroids for eczema). I'm very grateful to have found her as a doctor.
Very good, caring and thorough
I would recommend Dr Thornton if she could see patients without a4-month wait.
Dr. Thornton was great! Very kind and reviewed my chart before the visit.
