I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor or nurses. Through a several-month process, he was a strong comfort. He’s the doctor who made me feel normal again.

When you have an appointment at 8:15, that’s when Dr. Elliott will see you. You don’t spend a lot of time in the waiting room, and all the people who work there are very kind people.

When I came in for my consultation, I was immediately pleased with how professional everyone was at MPS. It put me at ease having such a warm welcome. Dr. Thornton explained the whole process of my surgery to me and assured me by answering all of my questions. I have lived in Meridian my whole life, and I am so proud to have this clinic here with such wonderful doctors and nurses. When people tell me they are thinking about going somewhere else, I always ask why they would go anywhere else but Meridian Plastic Surgery.

From start to finish, everyone at Meridian Plastic Surgery was great. Dr. Thornton researched my case to find the best possible solution – and he did. He was relentless in helping me and my situation. He remained persistent and dedicated to my overall health. He cared not only about my physical health, but my emotional health as well. He always took his time answering all of my questions. The staff is just as great. Every nurse there is amazing. They really make me feel like family.

Dr. Thornton’s patients are his biggest concern. He is a special person and a special doctor. His nurse, Lisa, is just as good. They take care of their people.

Martha Robb

I was fortunate to find Dr. Thornton. He has done a terrific job with my surgeries and made me feel like I was the only patient he had. I would also recommend to anyone to look into laser surgery here.

Catherine Staggs

Dr. Thornton is the best doctor you could have. He is always considerate and shows compassion for his patients.

I can’t express enough thanks for the kindness and consideration ya’ll have given me. The difference you guys have made in my life. I say “you guys” because it takes all of you.

I have heard my entire life that plastic surgery is nothing but vanity and is frowned upon by so many. We live in a world that we are judged so much on our looks. I would get mean and cruel comments from people about my weight and the way I looked. I lost 50 pounds and would still get rude comments. The “tummy tuck” was beyond what I expected. When I went for my consultation, you made me feel that I was okay and life had done this to me by choosing to have children, not hideous or ugly. I am proud that you suggested the breast reduction; it all goes together so well. I researched everything about the tummy tuck, breast reduction, and arm lift, and never expected my results to turn out like they did. Dr. Thornton, you are incredible! I now have so many compliments about my looks. I do not have a problem telling people what I have done and who did it. I went to eat with my oldest daughter (age 20) the other day. When the waitress came to our table, she said, “Are ya’ll sisters?” Talk about an ego boost! I know I didn’t have a face-lift or anything like that, but I realized after we left that it wasn’t that I look so young, it’s that I am happier now and it shows. I can go shopping and enjoy trying on clothes. I used to get upset when I had to go shopping. I literally hated trying on clothes. My relationship with my husband was great; now it is even better. I know it isn’t that he loves me more; it’s that I LOVE ME more.

I am not ashamed that I chose to have the surgery. I am very proud that I thought enough of myself and my sweet husband thought enough of me to go ahead with it. We are by far not rich. We have a very modest income. We have a home, children, and drive very modest vehicles; money is just money. We have to have it to live, but we definitely don’t live for it. The surgeries were very much worth every penny; this was money well spent. A friend of ours said, “You could have bought a car with that much money.” My husband let him know quickly that the investment in me was worth more than any car or truck in this world.

I know you make a difference in so many lives with your talent. You have changed mine. God blessed me with you. God has his hand in everything in our lives, whether we accept it or not. He has blessed you, Dr. Thornton, with a wonderful talent and a wonderful staff. Please be sure to thank Him for all that He has done for you. I pray ya’ll have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year. I have begun a wonderful NEW LIFE!

Everyone is always so friendly, and they take special care of me when I have an appointment. The girls in the skin care department ROCK! They help to keep my skin beautiful! I’ve been a patient for over 10 years now I believe. Thanks again to MPS and Dr.Thornton!

I was greeted cordially and treated with utmost respect. The wait was less than 15 minutes, and I was really surprised since the waiting room was full. My visit was on Monday, and on Tuesday I received the call with the good biopsy report. I will definitely not hesitate to use Dr. Thornton should the need arise in the future."
