Dr. Katie Thornton, a pediatrician, has joined the Essentia Health St. Joseph’s-Baxter Clinic in Baxter.
“I like the environment at Essentia Health,” says Dr. Thornton. “There is an amazing collaborative approach between administration and physicians which I believe enhances quality of patient care.”
Dr. Thornton earned a medical degree from Midwestern University in Glendale, Ariz. She completed a residency in pediatrics at Saint Louis University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Mo.
“I love working with children and feeling like I can make a difference in their lives,” explains Dr. Thornton. “Teenagers represent a special area of medicine where they feel too old to be ‘kids’ and not quite ‘adults.’ I like to be the person they can rely on to help them make healthy lifestyle choices.”
