Dr. Movva spent a lot of time with us and asked many times if we had any questions. I went with a list of questions and he answered all of them. He ordered more lab tests. I use mychart and he is quick to respond to questions through email. His nurse was very informative and helpful. Overall very good experience.

Dr. Movva had no clue on how to diagnose my fluctuating testosterone levels and finally he decided to "wait another year". I dropped him.

not a good doctor

Went to this doctor for thyroid issues. Appt. was scheduled for 9:30, got there a little past 9:00 to fill out paperwork, had no paperwork to fill out, so waited until 9:45 to be taken back to an exam room, plus another 20 minutes before he came in to see me, despite the fact that I was his first patient of the day. He just barely glanced at the test results and history my GP had sent over before he began asking questions he often didn't let me answer before going on to the next question. He informed me that there was no way I could have an allergic reaction to the synthetic thyroid hormones and there was also no way I could still feel hypothyroid if my blood tests showed normal, basically belitting me for knowing what was going on with my body. I had just been put on NP Thyroid by my GP the week prior to this visit and Dr. Movva had to google it to find out what it was, he'd never heard of it, even though NP has been out for over a year. He informed me that he did not believe in the natural hormone pills, they were not titrated correctly, then proceeded to prescribe a dosage of Levoxyl that was in no way equivalent to what I was taking in the NP Thyroid...he just assumed that 88mcgs of the Levoxyl was equivalent to the 90mgs of NP I was on, and there is a HUGE difference in the grains. He said he would not see me or run any tests until I'd been on that dose of Levoxyl for 6 weeks, then left the room, and gee for being a new patient, he was only in with me for 15 minutes. His nurse Carissa came in and had an extremely rude and superior attitude, acting like I was a small child that needed to be told what to do as I was sent on my way with the new scrip for Levoxyl. After a week of being on it, I was so hypothyroid I literally could not function AT ALL, so I went back on the NP and I'm doing fine now. Given the all around negative attitude of both the doctor and the staff, along with the fact that he seriously under-dosed me on a medication I need to survive, I will not be returning to him and I don't recommend him to anyone.
