Patient Comments (1)
in New Orleans, LA |
The first time I saw him, before blood work was even done he said I did not have anything wrong with my thyroid. Then the blood work showed I have Hashimoto's and also a low T3 level. I tried to discuss the T3 level and he totally dismissed me. For some reason, just like a lot of Endocrinologist, they only want to look at the TSH levels. Well guess what I've figured out, there is so many other things besides that and that is why I still cannot get my body straight.
