    Dr. Platzer has been the ONLY doctor in the area that would actually help me with my Hashimoto issues and he took time with all of my concerns, explained things to me, and made me feel like everything is going to be okay again. I wish that I would have found Dr. Platzer sooner! All of his staff is very friendly and helpful also.
