Thorough

Dr. Terlecki was the first endocrinologist I saw after being diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis by blood work. I have seen many different endocrinologists since having to leave Dr. Terlecki's practice, due to my change in insurance plans which limited my options of providers covered by my new insurance. I have yet to meet an endocrinologist who is as thorough and seems as competent as Dr. Terlecki was. She gave me very useful recommendations which have proven to be informed and appropriate to managing my illness as best as possible over the years. I wish all physicians were as competent!

Dr. Terlecki is great. She has taken the time to look into the effects of all my medical. Getting a thyroid under control takes time and patience which she has.

Missed diagnosing me with secondary hypothyroidism.

Rude and arrogant, does not listen---hears only what she wants to hear and not interested in trying to figure out cases that aren't textbook simple. On my first (and last) appointment with her she spent more time talking about herself and her problems and life than listening to my concerns. She was dismissive of my concerns regarding hypothyroid symptoms because my TSH was low. That was 5 years ago. I have since been diagnosed with secondary (pituitary) hypothyroidism which she could have done 5 years ago if she had been paying any attention to what I had said or given me any credit for knowing my own body and being able to do some problem solving myself. If she knew her specialty, she could have figured it out from the lab results as well because low TSH with low quartile fT4 is indicative of secondary hypo. according to endo. study guides from teaching hospitals and the European Journal of Endocrinology. 5 years of diminished quality of life is too much to pay! I left that appointment in tears, and have heard of several others who have had similar experiences. She recommends the obvious ("just exercise more", "just cut back on calories", "just supplement with vitamin D more") as though her patients hadn't already done those things. A total waste of time, money, and years of my life!

Waited over an hour.

I have waited over an hour several times. I'm writing this review while waiting for her. I got here at 4:20 because my appointment was at 4:30. It's 5:23 and I have been in a room for an hour. I seriously think she forgot about me
