This doctor does not care about the patients at all. A pregnant woman needs to adjust the thyroid med especially in the first trimester. This is very important for women who don't have thyroid.He had one test done at week8, and asked me to come back in 6 weeks. This basically put baby in danger. Also, he does not listen to patient and very stubborn with his own opinion.
