Go Somewhere Else

Very dissatisfied with his understanding of current medical literature and current practice on treating thyroidism. Purely a stats reader, no ability to address issues that don't show in stats. Just not a good doctor. No follow up either. In and out and goodbye is the practice.

Not great for Diabetes Care

After reading the reviews that specifically mention diabetes care, I can't help but think that he doesn't particularly enjoy taking care of diabetes patients, and so doesn't give the time or attention that he gives to people with other endocrine problems. I have been with him for two years, but every time I go to him he pawns me off on the Nurse Practitioner there.My diabetes is not fully managed, so I would rather see him since I must change my dosage, etc so often.

He's ok

Dr Irwig is very knowledgable, but his bedside manner is lacking. For someone who works with a lot of trans clients, I'd think he'd be more accepting. I've seen him several times, and will likely see him again since he is so knowledgable, but he didn't make me feel comfortable. He comes across as patronizing and condescending. I appreciate that he sits and leans forward in my general direction when taking my history, but it comes off as creepy instead of engaging. I actually prefer when he has his head in the computer and just types up what I've been saying. I also found it rather off putting how much he talks about himself and touts his accomplishments. It is great that he is working so hard, but I would rather spend that time discussing my health problems. All that being said, he seems knowledgable and has generally given me good advice.
