Awhile back, I thought I had a spur forming on my left thumb. At first it hurt a lot but then settled down. It kept growing, however, so I decided to seek medical attention. I saw Dr. Thornburg in one of Carolina Hand's satellite offices. After shooting an X-ray of the thumb, he was able to see that it was not a spur at all. He highly recommended surgery to take it off. I went over to the surgery suite in Asheville and was treated like a very special person. The care, attention and kindness was very evident. Dr. Thornburg did a marvelous job on my thumb. When he opened up the area, it turned out to be a giant cell tumor and it was wrapped down and around tendons, nerves, muscles and blood vessels. Dr. Thornburg did a remarkable job in getting that thing off of my thumb with no loss of use or feeling in the thumb. He was awesome. As a matter of fact, my daughter has a very messed up right shoulder and she will be seeing Dr. Thornburg for her shoulder. That's how much I respect and trust him. All I can say to the Carolina Hand practice is THANK YOU for accepting only the best of the best!

After years of excruciating pain and doctors who wouldn't listen or treat the pain I finally found this practice. Dr. Mironer and the PAs took a proactive approach to finding the root of my pain. Dr. Mironer gave me injections relatively painless both during the procedure and afterward. He has a very dry sense of humor which I thoroughly enjoyed and the PAs listen, are sympathetic and again, proactive in treating the pain. The tests they ordered led to finding the root cause of my pain and have been managing the pain ever since with great success. I would recommend this practice to anyone who is truly interested in finding out why they have pain and are appreciative of procedures to to manage it. They are at first reluctant to prescribe pain medicine with good reason given the number of drug seekers today. Once they assess the needs of the patients however they medicate well to manage the pain. I would recommend this practice to anyone.
I'm almost 50 and had a very long relationship with my first family doctor until he retired. His approach to an illness was pretty much on par with the way that Dr. McNeill manages my health now. It's refreshing to find a doctor that embraces the best technology out there for running his practice as well as serving his patients. Gone are the day long visit for a simple appointment. You can schedule an appointment usually the same day and you're not stuck in a waiting room. I also credit him with saving my life in his approach to what seemed like a simple kidney or bladder infection. His being on top of it resulted in finding a tumor that still resulted in the loss of a kidney but I personally feel it could have been worse if I had been seeing another family doctor.
