Dr Thornton did a great job on my breast reduction and lift. It's been over two years and I am so pleased with my results. He explained everything thoroughly and I knew what to expect. I highly recommend Dr. Thornton for breast reduction.

I had a tummy tuck performed by Dr. Thorton he did a awesome job, his staff and himself are very caring and friendly. Throughout my healing process I received calls and office visits to make sure that everything was going as expected. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

I'm a beach person, love the sun. Snowbird in Florida in the winter & live in Lewes/Rehoboth area the rest of the year. Went to Dr. Thornton for body check & I knew I had a suspicious lesion on my forehead. He performed a biopsy that day & explained exactly what he was doing & what he suspected. I felt no pain whatsoever & I'm not a fan of needles. His assistant was extremely courteous & made me feel totally at ease. I highly recommend him . Can't praise him enough.

Very caring and personal. May seem a little short or cold. At first but that is because he is professional when you get to know him he becomes more personable. Would never use anyone else.
