The worst part of the colonoscopy is the prep. Other than that…it is no big deal. Do yourself a favor and just do it.”



Congratulations to Dr. David Thorson…recipient of the Minnesota Medical Association (MMA) Distinguished Service Award!

Entira Family Clinics is so proud of Dr. Thorson and this most deserving award.  Dr. Timothy Hernandez, CEO, states, “Many of you who know Dr. Thorson are aware of how much he has contributed to the success of Entira and its antecedent organizations, FHSM and Minnhealth. His pride in our organization is characterized by the Entira shirt he is wearing during his acceptance speech. Dr. Thorson has been an important part of our success as an organization. He is a “connecter,” linking us to people and organizations that have made us better. He thinks outside the box. His innovative suggestions have often pushed us in directions that we would not have explored while making us a much more effective organization. Over his career at Entira, Dr. Thorson has always been involved as a physician and in many different administrative roles. He has worked tirelessly to help us in many different ways. Of his many wonderful attributes what I appreciate most is that he is kind and generous. He is willing to do just about anything for just about anyone. At a time when you are feeling at your lowest point Dr. Thorson would inspire hope and confidence. Likewise for patients, I have seen him go out of his way to help them. I am sure that this is one of the reasons he has been officially recognized as a Top Doctor for so many years. Thank you, Dr. Thorson, for what you have done and continue to do for Entira and our community!”
