Get another doc and office

He had theory that wasn't right and then told me he couldn't help me without even looking at anything else. I didn't fit into his cookie cutter theory, so he pushed me along to another doctor instead of even trying to help me. The same thing happened to a friend in the same office by another docs around the same time.

I feel rushed when I see him. Does not regard my opions a valid. Will not try new treatments. I am getting a new doctor for my thyroid treatment. I do not like to be on the assembly line.

Great Doctor!

I recently started seeing him for the possibility of Graves disease. He seems to be caring and not the "I know it all type" So far he has explored my symptoms to ensure the right diagnosis. He wasn't in and out, he actually went over everything with me. Which sets him apart from alot of other doctors. The only complaint I have is that I live a hour away. Other than that he's great!
