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 This dr does not use ultrasound guidance for her biopsies & this is a very outdated practice.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!!
