in Oceanside, CA |
Went in for a serious personal medical issue, related to endocrinology. Dr Hupfeld was supposed to order tests and help me out but 1 week later nothing has been accomplished our set in motion, as if he completely ignored our discussion. He did not order any tests, and I'm still suffering from my debilitating condition without any plan to figure out and treat my condition. I would not recommend him to anyone who is serious about getting urgent treatment.
in Valley Center, CA |
I have had pressure and pain in my neck for 5 years around my thyroid area and over the years has become worse, in which I have seen endocrinologists for thyroid nodules they have not investigated thoroughly why I have this pain. Dr. Hupfeld did not want to help me based on one blood test and said I should see an ear, nose and throat doctor for which I have been already. I suggested I needed more advanced imaging, but he will not further investigate and was very insensitive about my issue.
