I was diagnosed with hyperthyroid and because of it I could not get pregnant until my thyroid levels were normal. Although it took a while to get my first appointment with Dr. Boccalandro I was so glad I did. Thanks to her treatment, within 3 months my thyroid levels were normal and I was able to get pregnant. She maintained my thyroid levels normal throughout my pregnancy (giving me the lowest dosage possible). I am truly thankful for Dr. Boccalandro and Rhea Ortiz. Highly recommend!

There were considerable delays in receiving / posting my test results, and when they were finally posted after a few weeks, my primary concerns were not addressed. Perhaps it is a portal error, but there were quite a few misspelled words in the diagnosis listed on the portal, which does not lead to confidence in the results. It could be just a simple language barrier issue, so I am attempting to be fair, but I decided not to return for a follow up visit.

Dr. Boccalandro has been my physician for 7 years. She has always gone above and beyond for me, spending extra time with me and really listening to my concerns. I really appreciate her and her staff!

Doctor was extremely demeaning and insinuated that I was just crazy and not having the symptoms described. Did not listen when I attempted to explain my symptoms. I brought a list of symptoms I have been having and she did not even read it. Made degrading and humiliating inappropriate comments about my tubal ligation.

I just received a call from Dr Boccalamdro around 8 pm. I had a biopsy done on my thyroid. I received great news but my point is that this doctor took the time to call me. I have been eager to hear the results and she took the time and effort to call personally and after hours. Her mannerism made me feel calm and confident through the procedure. Five stars for this specialist.
