    I've been a patient of Dr Paloyan's for about 20 years. He has been able to manage my Hashimotos so that I was able to get pregnant (after struggling with years of infertility), have 2 successful pregnancies peri menopause , and now menopause . He is extremely knowledgeable and conservative in his treatment. He and all of his staff are kind and efficient.

    Doctor Edward Paloyan and his staff deserve a five star rating. To correct a previous review....He is an Endocronolgist not a General Surgeon! . I have been under his care for hypothyroid for 25 years. I too had 2/3 rds of my thyroidremoved after years of conservative treatment and monitoring. He has been very good with my meds and keeping me feeling balanced. If you have thyroid issues you know what I mean by feeling balanced. Very freindly and efficient staff as well

    he is a surgeon. he wont tell you about other options. i had my thyroid removed by him, then treated with radiated iodine 10 years later. the iodine is 1/20th the cost, and much less invasive. DO NOT have your thyroid surgically removed before looking into this option. Also, he charged me $15,000 out of pocket because he said his insurance payments were so high that my inusrance wouldnt cover it. try someone else first.
