THE FOXHOVEN FAMILY

Dr. Brian has been gift from God for our family.  We have 5 children and our 5th has special needs. The first year of his life I switched doctors twice because the patient/ parent/doctor relationship just was not working, and their offices were unbearable and unhealthy for my special son.  Dr. Brian comes to our home for each visit. My son who will be turning 10 in November is enjoying peak health, due to his excellent care.   Dr. Brian understands that each child is unique and requires a different, out of the box treatment.  Our son has a very rare neurotransmitter issue that less than 40 children in the world have been diagnosed with, thus he doesn’t sync with “norms and charts” but Dr. Thornburg sees way beyond that and looks within the person to really understand them and properly diagnosis and treat them.  Another wonderful benefit of the practice is accessabilty to Dr.Brian.  He answers the phone at any hour and will come to the ER and manage your child’s care in collaboration with the ER doctors. 

Of course all of my children benefit from his excellent care and his focus on nutrition and the whole person.  My children rarely get sick and instead live healthy vibrant lives.  Thx Dr. Thornburg!

THE EMERSON FAMILY

Thank you for all your help. It was worth going thru 3 other pediatricians to find you. I feel for the babies whose parents never think of what it is they are really doing.

THE LUND FAMILY

We want to say thank you for everything that you and your practice has done for our family. Both of our children have had their normal ups and downs and you have been the best PCP we could have asked for. You set the bar for pediatricians, you are top notch and we could not have asked for better care.

When Corban was born and I had delivery complications you were there immediately after the surgery and gave me the peace of mind that my child was safe and healthy even in the chaos of the hospital.

When Castin was born he was healthy until he hit 1 month and had pyloric stenosis. The 2am phone call to you made all the difference in the world to us, you called the ER doctor and told them exactly what tests to run and got us on the path to surgery immediately, and have now gotten Castin fully recovered.

We are forever grateful for your expert doctor’s skills, constant patience with us as new parents & concern you have had for our children. We will always recommend you to anyone asking for a pediatrician because you are the best there is.

Thank you again for always having our children’s health as your top priority we are truly appreciative.

THE JAMES FAMILY

There are not many physicians out in the world like yourself who are as compassionate about the health and well-being of the human race the way you are.

The primary care physicians at the hospital I work at are wonderful clinicians, but we have never experienced the kind of attention and treatment given by a physician the way you have. We think you are the best.

THE GREENLEE FAMILY

Thank you so much for doing these newsletters! They are thoughtful, intelligent, “off the fence” and cover so many amazing topics. I look forward to each one and think you have a gift for writing. Have you ever thought of writing a book?

THE DUNN FAMILY

Thank you for the excellent lecture on Vaccines last night! It was very informative. It is a topic that Alex and I discuss often, and my biggest issue has been finding clear information that isn’t put out there for political reasons. I don’t know what sources to trust these days, so I found your presentation very helpful. I liked the approach and hearing the pros and cons. What you do, not only for your patients but also the community, is wonderful. I don’t think I will ever be able to express my true gratitude towards you. I look at healthcare in a completely different way. You are a very inspirational person!

THE TOPLIFF FAMILY

I never wrote anything about your newsletter, but I want to tell you how much I appreciate it. Its informative, good, very useful and so funny. What an inspiring and true newsletter you put together Dr. T. – Thank you! How right you are – I sat down my hubby and read it out loud to him.

I told Todd when we left after Emma’s appointment on Tuesday, that I would like to move in for 24 hours, just to see how you manage everything – the getting up, getting ready, meals, and night routine and the cleaning with 7 kids.

You are a true inspiration for me and I’m sure for many other people too – I just called you Mr perfect superman when I was talking to your wife the other day. I asked her if your day maybe consists of 48 hours – hours that your stealing somewhere up there 🙂  or maybe you go to bed at midnight and get back up at 2.00 am….

How does one person accomplish so much good and great in a normal day and has this wonderful family life that he leads and keeps his practice running smooth and professional. It’s amazing –  You show me that everything is possible if you only put your thoughts to it and are passionate about it. So thank you again. I truly enjoy your newsletters.

Thank you Dr.T. and Dr. T.and crew you are great!

THE STABILE FAMILY

As parents of four children, Michael and I have always put the medical care of our children as top priority. Relocating to Naples, Florida from the Boston, Massachusetts area meant leaving our wonderful pediatrician, trained at Boston Children’s Hospital, behind.

For the first three years in Naples, Florida we had three different pediatric practices, none of which we felt gave our children satisfactory attention and care. On one Saturday we were waiting in the waiting room for 2 and 1/2 hours with our 3 year old who had been up all night suffering from an ear infection. A parent sitting next to us, feeling the same frustration, told us about a new concierge practice, Thornburg Pediatrics.

After meeting with Dr. Brian Thornburg and discussing concepts and philosophy in the care of our children, we felt strongly that our decision to put our children under his care was a good one. Dr. Thornburg has been kind, gentle, caring and fully accessible at all times. Our children know and trust him. He has been spot on in many instances in diagnosing and treating our children on various ailments and injuries. We especially appreciate his home style approach and his caring demeanor. He has enlightened us in many ways of natural and holistic approaches we have implemented successfully in the everyday child care elements of our family. We don’t know what we would do without him.

Thank you for this opportunity to share our thoughts on the greatness of Dr. Thornburg and his pediatric practice.

Sincerely,

Karen and Michael Stabile

THE SCHULZE FAMILY

I was very happy to get your newsletter about Vitamin D this morning. You seem to be a doctor that’s really into prevention. I am in the process of getting my levels checked.

I appreciate all of your newsletters and think that they are really wonderful for the parents of your little patients. I just overheard someone talking about your H1N1 vaccine newsletter at the girls’ dance class. She was saying how great it was. It’s amazing how many parents you’ve reached out to and given the knowledge to make their own decision. It’s really great!

Thanks!
Stephanie Schulze

THE GERRY FAMILY

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for attending to Alexandra on Tuesday evening. When she woke with that familiar, yet horrifying bark of the croup virus, I felt a tremendous sense of relief knowing that we had you on our team. As you promised, you were a phone call away… and within minutes, you were at our doorstep.

I wish that every parent could be so fortunate to have such an amazing service – and such a dedicated pediatrician. We battled the first bout of the croup without you. And what a nightmare that was! Frightened and horror stricken, we endured the emergency room without representation, and we felt as though we were at the mercy of the over-worked and over-stressed strangers with rigid protocols.

This time around, and with you by our side, the experience was far more comfortable for all of us. Equipped with a nebulizer and steroids, the “worst” part of the treatment occurred in the comfort of our family room. Alexandra responded more positively this time because the person helping her was someone she already knew and trusted. You evaluated and treated her as an individual, not as a potential liability. And the care you gave was warm and personal. Even the steroid shot was a non-issue for her. I can only imagine if that shot had been given under the bright lights and sterile air of the emergency room. Keeping the stress to a minimum, you quickly and successfully brought the horrible cough under control. I also applaud you for your thoroughness. To rule out the possibility of a life-threatening flu, you recommended a trip to the emergency room for an x-ray. Exercising your privileges at NCH, you stayed with her and got her out of the hospital in record time. She was so proud to tell us the next morning about the pictures taken of her throat! It was as if she enjoyed the hospital experience – a far cry from the last time we were there.

We are grateful and honored to have you in our lives. Thank you for the commitment you make to our children.

Sincerely,
Jessica Gerry

THE BASS FAMILY

It’s been a little over four weeks since our baby girl had her first appointment with you. And I am still wowed by the experience my family and I were exposed to. If you haven’t been told lately, I will take the time to tell you now…. you are marvelous at what you do as a physician!

James and I walked away from your office feeling a sense of assurance that Arissa (our daughter) will be okay, not because she is without any major health conditions but because of your detailed, thorough, knowledgeable hypothesis wrapped in a thick layer of true compassion for your profession and human kind alike.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our diversified family feel welcome. We look forward to a bright future for our precious little girl, under your watchful eye of course.

Fondly,
The Bass Family

THE CERDAN FAMILY

It was so wonderful and comforting to have such a fine pediatrician for our first child, Gerald Jr. We sincerely appreciate your time, patience and warm hospitality during our visits to your office.  You always made us feel at ease, and everything you suggested in response to our concerns was very helpful!

Thank you so much for this lovely experience!  Your care will surely be missed since we moved and you are irreplaceable!!

Best Wishes,

Gerald and Gianna

THE ANDOLLO FAMILY

Almost three years ago, just before my daughter was born, I met Dr. Thornburg for the first time. He was with a group practice at the time and came highly recommended from our birthing class instructor.  As a first time mom, I had many questions and concerns (and still do, as he can attest!). From the very beginning he was thoughtful and caring and put my mind at ease about being a new mom.

When Elena was born, she had a difficult time in the beginning with reflux. Dr. Thornburg was so attentive, treated things at our pace and never made us feel bothersome, no matter how many trips (whether necessary or unnecessary) we made to the office. When we found out he was going out on his own, we did not hesitate to follow. There was no question, as my daughter loves him as well. It was the best decision we have made in caring for our little girl.  He has done so much for us;  weekend calls, late calls, not to mention the 11:00 pm, 104 degree fever and vomiting call that brought him right to our door without even a hint of annoyance!  My daughter now loves going to his office and cannot stop talking about the “chicks” and “goats” (“guts” as she calls them!).

He gives pediatricians something to strive for.  He truly puts the “care” in healthcare. He is not only your pediatrician, he is your friend.

THE BROCKINTON FAMILY

My family only gets sick between 7-12 p.m. It’s always a comfort to know that we can call and talk to Dr. Thornburg or Denise anytime and they know who we are and can talk us down from freaking out. The latest call came from worrying about a rash on our daughter. Dr. Thornburg even tried to save us the $$ and time by trying to have us take a picture and text it to him. His expertise in knowing when to bring her in and when to let the problem run its course has been comforting.

On a separate occasion, again after normal business hours, I called Dr. Thornburg and got the answering machine; I left a message and he called me back about 5 minutes later. I think

I’ve called his office over 40 times in the last 2 years, and I had never left a message; as dumb as it sounds, it had never dawned on me that he had one. He or Denise always answer!

Dr. Thornburg has helped us so much raising both of our daughters. His advice on how to handle getting our daughters to sleep through the night has saved us hundreds of hours of sleepless nights!
