Dr. Jost-Vu is phenomenal. She is knowledgeable and cares enough to investigate what to do before repeating common pieces of advice that do not work for everyone. I found her to be the best endocrinologist in the area. Plus she is not condescending, a great trait!

When she talks to you she looks like she geniunly cares about you. I just wish she would have told me that too much thyroid hormone turns the osteoblasts too fast...Read More
