For a woman of 72 years who has never had surgery I was stressed and overwhelmed. But when I met Dr. Terris and his team I immediately knew I was in good hands and my well being and comfortably was their main focus. As previous patients stated he has wonderful bedside manner and it is obvious he has the expertise. He gave my husband his cell number and called him when the surgery was completed. He checked up on me with a couple of days and call directly with the results of a biopsy.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Terris' Care Philosophy

We have a very specialized practice focused exclusively on thyroid and parathyroid diseases. We do hundreds and hundreds of thyroid and parathyroid surgeries each year, but provide a personalized and customized approach for which the institution is known. We offer a streamlined process called "on-stop care" which is especially valuable for our patients who fly in for surgery, or drive long distances.
