Horrible. Wish I'd read the reviews first. I was unnecessarily horribly sick for three months because of this terrible "doctor." Sure, her office is gross and her staff is rude, but that's fine - it's the fact that she's just not a good

In a city of so many great doctors it's amazing that Karen Thornton can stay in business. I had recently went to her for a physical and hopefully to have her become my new primary doctor. After waiting 35 minutes after my scheduled

Best doctor in the World! The moment I stepped through the door I knew this was the perfect fit. Great energy from the staff. Filled out the Phreesia Pad

Recommends/requires unnecessary visits, with unnecessary co-payments. Wasting my time and money.

Conclusion: Go elsewhere.

I love Dr. Thornton. She is a good listener and works hard to ensure that you are well taken care off. She is quirky and witty, so her personality resonates in the office. I have been going to Dr. Thornton for almost 5 years and she is

I have decided not to return to Dr. Thornton after almost 4 years. The turn over rate at this place is crazy. I never see the same staff member twice. The staff, for the most part, seem to have no dr. office experience at all. On my last visit ---I had an appointment--I waited for over 90 minutes to see the doctor. When I finally saw her, she had no idea why I was there. AND I had been there two weeks prior. What really bugs me is the semi-private nature of the office. She will talk to you about your Rx and diagnosis at the reception desk which is next to a usually crowded waiting room. While waiting your turn, you learn way too much about the other patients. She is a nice person - no doubt. But she really needs a strong office manager to help her out. In addition, the furnishing and cabinets in the place are way out of date. Also, they never seem to be able to locate my file. She is a good doctor, but the office staff, wait time, and lack of privacy are a deal breaker.

Pros: nice doctor

Cons: staff, wait times, old furnishings, lack of privacy

I had a recent issue that led me to go to the hospital. I called Dr. Thornton leaving an urgent message both at her office and on the phone number the voice mail offered in the case of an emergency. I have yet to receive a call back from this doctor. She is unprofessional and the issue was serious. If I waited for her to get back to me, who knows what would have happened. She should get her license revoked.

She also makes you wait a long time in the office and boasts that she will only truly give any urgent help to actors. I suppose she is in it for the wrong reasons.

I have been to Dr. Thronton 4 or 5 times in the past three years and only when I have been sick and absolutely needed to see someone. Her staff has lost test results, lost samples and have been rude. They seem like they could care less. After my last visit, I was shock and disgusted. In the exam room, everything seemed filthy (the floor, stained cabinets, the two chairs that are dirty beyond belief). Then I noticed urine samples, and vials of blood (non of which were mine) just sitting on the counter close to me (I can see why my samples got lost). Unprofessional and the reception desk is incredibly rude. Will not be going back. I would rather stay sick and I would give no stars if they would let me.

Pros: can see you the same day if needed

Cons: Filthy, unsanitary, unprofessional

I've been going to her for about 4 years now and think very highly of her. How best to put it? ...If you had a cool, down-to-earth sister that you got along well with, but who was also a doctor that you could call up or go see when you had a medical problem...that would be how I would characterize Dr. Thornton.

She listens and talks to you like you know your own body.

Pros: Straight forward, listens, very down-to-earth.

I've been going to Dr. Thornton for several years now. Sometimes she gives me the attention I need, while other times she tends to get very distracted. She also tends to be very disorganized. If it weren't for the many patient assistants she's had over the years, I'm not sure how she would be running her practice.

I've been going to her for 5 years, the staff is friendly, and she never rushes you out, and takes the time to answer whatever questions you have.

I wouldn't say Dr. Thornton is the best, but she's not the worst either. Definitely has a tendency to overprescribe antiobiotics, and get you out of the office a little too fast. But she can be nice too, and is openminded and knowledgeable.

Dr. Thorton is a stellar doctor. I have been going to her practice for over three years. She is always upbeat and funny. She is slightly unconventional - she focuses on the theatre community and I think her practice reflects that sometimes - but it is not a negative. I am in banking and she has never offended me. In fact, she is caring and knowlegeable. I feel like she spends extra time and does not just want to see you and get you out. When it comes right down to anything serious - the funny/quirky side turns quicky to professional analysis with clear diagnosis and treatment discussion.

If you are looking for the classic cold and condescending medical professional this is not the place to go. Lots of people I have recommended love her and I think that's the best reflection of her practice.

I had an app at this practice and was treated so rude I couldn't believe it!!! I just changed insurance carriers due to a new job and had not recieved my insurance card yet however I had my id number. There was a problem with the number Blue Cross had gave me and the receptionist said she was having a hard time getting the insurance company on the phone to verify it,well Dr. Thornton acted extremely rude about the situation. She stated that they didn't have time to waste on "people like me" and kept rolling her eyes at me like a child. When I stated that had been sick for a while and do have insurance just not the card as of yet she actually said to me: "Well I wanna get paid". I told her to forget about it I didnt even want to keep my app anymore because of her unprofessionalism and she just said "I don't care". I was shocked that a Dr would treat a patient that way. My advice is to never see her, she doesn't care at all about the well-being of her patients, she is a horrible Dr. and shouldn't even be in business!!!!
