not for complex thyroid issues!

TSH only doctor, did not recognize that i had acute thyroiditis, said i only had hashimotos and needed a shrink. a month later i couldnt swallow and needed to have the thyroid completely removed. If only given the time to spend with me instead of thinking about his next patient. Very dissapointed.

RUDE staff even to just make an appointment

When I called the staff was very abrupt to even make an appointment. She was very unprofessional and called me "sweetie" and "honey" for the few minutes I spoke with her. I was trying to find an endocrinologist, but apparently he doesn't have my specialty. Instead of trying to help or listen she hung up. I realize they don't have my specialty, but the way she handled the call was very rude. I couldn't even finish telling her about my thyroid diagnosis, before she hung up. I do think he treats thyroidism, but according to her he ONLY treats diabetes?? Who knows what he treats since his staff won't even let you explain your condition. They are done with you before you even start the call, if you are not diabetic. After being treated like I wasn't worth her time, I would NOT recommend this doctor.
