Go to Boston IVF, Don't Use Dr. Thornton

If I could give Dr. Kim Thornton 0 stars, I would. While I loved Boston IVF, Dr. Thornton was awful. I was under her care for one year and she told me she didn't know why the treatments hadn't yet worked. I sought the second opinion of another doctor within the practice. That doctor assessed my treatments under Dr. Thornton and explained to me that I had been insufficiently medicated. Dr. Thornton did not have me on enough progesterone to support implantation. I resumed treatment under the care of the second doctor who added progesterone shots to my medical regiment. I got pregnant on my first cycle of treatment with this new provider. While I understand it is in part luck that my treatment worked, I find it curious that the new doctor only needed to add progesterone shots, something that in retrospect seems rather standard for fertility treatments, to my treatment plan in order to get success. In the meantime, Dr. Thornton hadn't even mentioned this. Go to Boston IVF as they are great; do not use Dr. Thornton as your provider.
