Dr. Christofides is very intelligent, but should not be a doctor. She is very rude and unprofessional. She was even so bold to tell me that after I turn 30 there would be no chance to become pregnant....this is during a first visit! I did give her one more chance, but at that point was not comfortable with her providing me care. Although she's smart, I'm sure there are less knowledgeable, nicer doctors you can visit.

I blindly followed her advice on first visit re: going gluten-free. When I went back three months later and had gained some weight she basically told me that that was unacceptable and I needed to follow a keto diet. After thinking on it for a few days I realized that I had too much faith in someone that I didn't even spend a grand total of 30 minutes with simply because she is a doctor. Plus she was 15-30 min late for both visits.

I tried to pass off her lack of professionalism, rudeness, and arrogance as her having a bad day, but it is more than that. I have never met a doctor who treats people this way. Really, it is hard to imagine until you meet her.

Dr. Christofides continues to help me manage my rare disease. She is amazing. She has saved my life, and given me back my life. She is very knowledgeable and continues to learn everything she can about my rare condition. I highly recommend her to anyone dealing with hypoPARAthyroidism. She is a godsend!

If I could rate a zero I would extremely rude doctor. She has no respect for her patients...An example of an email response she sent me...I HAVE been in your shoes, my primary focus is to get my patients the care that they need. Do you know what I can't do? Read your mind when you are absolutely SILENT for MONTHS. Do you know what I won't tolerate? Your attitude. I wouldn't recommend her to anyone...BEWARE

Dr Christofides saved my life- not only did she spend a significant amount of time with me during each of my appointments over the past 2 years, she has opened my mind to the lifestyle changes that must be made when you have a Thyroid disease. From regularly checking medications, making adjustments as necessary, diet, and vitamin levels; Dr Christofides is confident, knowledgeable, candid and extremely honest with you. I appreciate those qualities in a physician.

Dr Christofides is brilliant and amazing. She's insightful and knows her field. She basically saved my sanity when no one else could fix my issues. Having said that her medical assistant, Kisha leaves a lot to be desired in the realm of professionalism.
