I’m 37, F, and african American. Dr. Fassler was kind, patient, explained my disease and treatment options (my first endo didnt want to treat me), her office staff is great with scheduling. She reviewed the clinical picture of my disease progression over 9 years and listened to my symptoms. She’s great for autoimmune thyroid disease. I work in provider relations and her bedside manner is stellar compared to her peers.

Total Nightmare! I had to fight with her to even get an appointment. I had to fight to get any testing done. Dr was dismissive of my appeal for exploratory bloodwork-wanting to confirm no endocrine abnormalities. Dr wanted to snipe about my not answering my phone when I indicated in my paperwork a msg could be left- she would not, leaving me to hunt her down for my results with more passive aggression. Dr clearly had no interest doing anything beyond her routine. Phlebotomist/staff was lovely.

She is only concerned about money. She doesn’t respond to messages, it’s extremely hard to schedule appointments and the doctor has awful bedside manner. I would recommend her to my worst enemy.

Worst Doctor I have ever had. miss diagnosed me charged me for test I did not need. when my A-1c was still high after prescribed treatment. She said she did not know what else to do. Horrible Doctor. I now have a Great Endocrinologist. who has my Diabetes under control. sorry I ever went to This Doctor.

By singling out Dr Fassler based on her ratings, was hoping she would 'think outside the box' on my thyroid issues. Could have saved my time(and hers) and out of pocket costs if I knew she would just basically parrot the same labs my (non-specialist) internal medicine doc read off the sheet of paper. Also would not entertain non-synthetic meds that I had been on previously with better results, and offered no legitimate reason, other than she did not like them. Will not waste my time going back

I had a fine needle aspiration biopsy of a nodule on my thyroid by Dr. Fassler. It was painless and very quick. You could feel a little pressure during the procedure but nothing close to pain. Dr. Fassler took the time to explain the complete procedure. I was also given a sheet when this appointment was made that answered frequently ask questions. I had a small amount of swelling after the procedure and a little discomfort after the anesthetic wore off. Tylenol took care of the discomfort.
