For thyroid issues: He talks too fast, you tell him you feel like poo he doesn't listen. He doesn't give you straight answers. He kept upping my dose of thyroid meds & when I would tell him, that I still felt like poo, I'm gaining weight, more hair loss, etc. He said maybe the meds aren't attaching to your body, I asked him why & he couldn't give me a straight answer. He gave me an "I don't know" face & changed the subject. He likes to hear himself talk. Go to someone else for your thyroid!

Long wait on phone and a month long waiting list to be seen.

He's the best Endocrinologist.. He has found my problem with my thyroid and has had it under control. It had taken 3 doctors to diagnose me when it took him only a few minutes to tell me what my problem was! Not only has he gotten my thyroid under control I soon developed diabetes as well and he was able to control that and fight for me to get the medication I needed when my insurance wanted me to use pills I couldn't take. He's a fantastic Doctor
