Worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. She would not listen to my problems, and tried to dismiss every symptom I had as not being anything serious. Me and my wife stormed out of the doctors office furiously because of her rudeness. I do not recommend.

After reading some of the other reviews, I can surely understand where trhe negative comments come from, because Dr. Harstine does have a quirky personality. I have been under her care as a diabetic for almost ten years, and have gotten to know her a bit better. I have noticed that those who disrespect her to her face get a rather withering response. Just saying. I have found her to be very knowledgeable and effective as far as I let her, because I am a poor patient when it comes to diet and exercise. She lets me know that she is unhappy with me for that, and I appreciate the honesty. Some have said they think she doesn't care about them or their needs. I believe she does, but she does not show it in the extravagant manner some seem to require. Just as an example, Dr. Harstine put me on an injectable hormone called Symlin. It comes in pen form and is expensive. I normally inject from bottles, so I have plenty of needles available. The pens always waste a small amount of the fluid at the end - they do not finish pumping it out. The Symlin pen is no different. She warned me not to pull out that last little amount and use it because the dosage was far different than the unit calibrations on the needles and I'd be taking way too much. She knew I was a cheap so and so, and that I was willing to tinker, and that was just the sort of thing I'd try to save a buck. So she put a stop to that right away. I'd say she knew me fairly well to be able to forsee that, and that she cared. She no longer works for Galichia and has opened her own practice at 3223 N Webb Rd Ste 3 Wichita, KS 67226 (316) 609-3030 So take what you will from what I wrote. I trust her, my other doctors trust her, my famlly likes her, and I appreciate having her around.

If you have parathyroid problems, I would definitely suggest you find a different doctor. I had already developed osteoporosis because of my hyperparathyroidism. My calcium and parathyroid blood counts were high, but a sonogram was negative. Because the sonogram was negative, she wanted me to just come back in six months. (I had read online that it is common for sonograms to be negative.) I went home, called my family doctor and asked to be referred elsewhere. My family doctor got me in to see a different endocrinologist. This doctor sent me to consult with a surgeon the day of my appointment. I had surgery and feel so much better. One of my parathyroid glands was 4 times the normal size and was not where it should have been located (surgeon had to hunt for it). Had I stayed with Dr. Harstine I don't know what would have happened.

Great depth of knowledge....if you stay under her care as a diabetic she will help you prevent many of the renal/neuropathy issues the many long term pts. have.
DO NOT USE THIS DOCTOR..GO ELSEWHERE!!!

Very poor bedside manner, poor eye contact or non at all. She had her head stuck in the computer as she was taking notes about me. I took a list of symptoms I was having an gave them to her. She would not acknowlege them. She began the appointment after I told her my history by informing me that I was low on Vitamin D and that is why I was pure exhausted and went on a tangent about how that was her problem in the past and she started taking Vitamin D and now she is no longer exhausted. Mind you, I had this test in previous months to say the contrary. Little physical exam, if you consider holding out my hands to look at them and feeling my thyroid for a mere 10 seconds an exam. I was informed that I would be called the next week with her plan of treatment. NO, THANKS..next doctor please! I felt that I could get more caring and compassionate care at a VET!

Dr. Harstine was rood and didn't take into consideration how I the patient felt. My husband and I started asking questions on different forms of treatment and about how the meds I am taking could affect our futer plans. The dr. sudenly became very defencive and basicly yelled at us that what she decided was best for me would be the only thing she would concider. It was as if our opinion didn't count for anything. I will NOT be going back to her.
I would chose a differnt Dr.if you need a Endo

She was rude. Questioned why I had cancerous thyroid removed--"there is cancer in all thyroids". I went to my car and cried!
