Dr. Brian Thornburg has been married since 2001 to Dr. Helen Thornburg and together they have eight children ranging in birth dates from 2002 to 2013. After many struggles trying to blend a healthy marriage with the rigors of professional careers, they decided family came first. Dr. Brian left a successful high-volume pediatric practice to start an unconventional practice based out of his home. Once he established a viable concierge pediatric practice, his wife left her career as an emergency medicine physician and joined her husband in his office as a medical practitioner.  Her expertise in emergency medicine helps keep many children from having to visit the emergency department. The family lives on a small farm in Naples and raises cows, goats, chickens, guinea hens and peacocks. They promote self-sustainability and grow a wide variety of organic fruits, vegetables and herbs.

In addition to being the owner and chief physician of Thornburg Pediatrics, Dr. Thornborg is an active member of the American Academy of Pediatrics Home Visit Advisory Committee, and  the Founder and CEO of Innovative Pediatrics, LLC. Naples, Florida, a pediatric concierge medicine practice management, consulting and licensing company.
