in Greenacres, FL |
I have been to many Thyroid doctors over the years. I had thyroid cancer in 2002. I started going to Dr. Anna 5 years ago and I have no complaints. Sometimes it's hard to reach her office, but I have the problem with all doctors. She tells you the truth even if it's not what you want to hear. Her staff has always been polite to me, never rude. Her office hours are the same as mine, so my only negative is I always have to take time off work.

She's the WORST!! Do not go with this Doctor! Back in 2015 she wrongly diagnosed me with cancer!!! She performed a biopsy in her office without ultrasound guidance! Which obviously resulted in mixed results! I then changed doctors, did another biopsy and resulted benign! By the way... her office was always filthy. If I could give less than one star I would!!!

Hopefully, I can help someone with this review. This dr does not use ultrasound guidance for her biopsies & this is a very outdated practice. It almost cost me my thyroid! She told me I needed to have my thyroid REMOVED based on the pathology results. She didn't even spend time with me after delivering this shocking news. I had lots of questions! I went for a second opinion at an office that uses ultrasound guidance & advanced pathology. Bottom line- I DO NOT need my thyroid removed!!
