I was referred for follow-up care for hyperthyroidism. His 1st response was to remove my thyroid even though I had been well managed on medication for 4 years. I disagreed so he switched my meds from PTU to methimazole. In my next labs my TSH and T3 numbers were normal. I asked if I should be on a lower maintaince dosage. He said "no". Now my labs show hypothyroidism with high TSH. Going to a new doctor!

I was with this practice for 10 years. My doctor retired and then I started seeing my GP for my thyroid medication. I started having problems and thought I should go back to an endocrinologist. Tried making appointment and they said that I needed a referral, even though I'd been with that practice for 10 years. Got a referral from my GP, they sent it back to GP and said the only way I might be granted an appointment is to have my GP call them. Our health system is shameful in this county.

The mark of a GOOD endocrinologist is one who tests for all FIVE thyroid functions, not just TSH levels. They should also take in to account how you FEEL to determine if your medicine type and amount is good for YOU. They also need to take autoimmune thyroid disease in to account because it WILL effect your quality of life. It's YOUR health after all, do not rely on doctors who tell you how YOU feel.

1st: my GP referred me to this doc, but this doc was scheduling 4 MONTHS out. What person with a medical condition requiring a referral to a specialist and medical attention from a doctor would wait 4 months to be seen? 2nd: they said they would review my records and get back to me about whether or not they would even take me as a patient. As if I should be so lucky! 3rd, they called my GP (not me) and ordered more tests THROUGH ANOTHER DOC, BEFORE THEY WOULD EVEN SEE ME. Total amateur hour

Dr. Howard was unfamiliar with my rare condition. Instead of telling me in person that he was uncomfortable treating me, and I needed to find another physician, he waited until my prescriptions ran out and simply refused to renew them and had the pharmacy call me and tell me I needed to find another physician. I went for several days without medication that I need, which was very dangerous. This is unacceptable.
