I have been to see her four times. Each time she has been very cold and uncaring, treating me like she doesn't even want to deal with me at all. One appointment literally lasted 5 minutes. When I asked questions she sighs like it's too much trouble to answer me. The tests that she orders don't measure amount of actual free thyroid, so I am operating below actual normal levels. And last but not least the scripts on which my life now literally depends are not being filled on time.
