Specialties

Dr. Lorry D Thornton has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Emergency Medicine

    An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
    Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis.

Finally a doctor my wife and I trust

We have been searching for a primary care doctor since arriving to the Ft. Hood area. We have seen so many that have been horrible. Our experience with Dr. Thornton has been amazing. Both my wife and I have been very satisfied with the care we have gotten at the Harker Heights Clinic with Dr. Thornton. Her wait time can be a bit long, but the amount of time and care she gives each patient makes the wait worth it. Her staff is knowledgeable and attentive as well. She has been able to see us on short notice and follows up with the use of MyChart. We have asked questions via MyChart and her response time is fast. We have also had referrals by Dr. Thornton put in and those were filled extremely fast as well. All and all we are 100% satisfied with the care we are now receiving.

Presents poorly with flat affect. Gives little to no feedback as if she has no medical knowledge.

Saw this doctor in a workers comp case. She appears to be on the side of the insurance company, did not report what happened during the exam, did not listen to what the injured employee said during the exam, and stated in her report exactly what the insurance company wanted her to say without any thought of the injured worker.

I certainly recommend Dr. Lawrence. She made a very accuraate diagnosis of my illness and quickly began a course of treatment that had me feeling great improvement in less than 24 hrs. She wasvery professional yet quite caring and human.
