Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bazile "Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism is one of the least understood sub-specialties of medicine. Most of the patients referred by their primary care doctors have never heard of it. The internet is usually their main source of information. Unfortunately, it does not have the most updated information. Some patients already diagnosed their diseases after reading some paragraphs in WebMD or someone's blog. Almost all the US endocrinologists are confronting that dilemma. Our job is to deliver the best endocrine care, based upon the latest clinical studies and recommendations and not hearsay. I would advise anyone seeking endocrine care to avail themselves of the input of their primary care physician and the reputable endocrine websites, such as, the Endocrine Society, American Assoc. of Clinical Endocrinologists, American Thyroid Assoc., American Diabetes Assoc., Mayo and Cleveland Clinics, the National Institutes of Health. I make sure the patient understands the diagnosis/treatment."

"

As a board certified endocrinologist with 29 years of experience, my responsibility is to provide the best endocrine care, based upon the current clinical studies and recommendations. Unfortunately, like most US trained endocrinologists, I am confronting the dilemma of the internet. Most of the patients get their information from the latter and the majority of the time, it's very inaccurate. I would advise anyone seeking endocrine care

Patient Comments (5)

His staff is kind and accommodating, I unfortunately can't say the same for him. By someone's standards, I'm sure he's very professional. Relatively speaking, he is anything but. Overall, my experience in his office was the most negative experience I have had with a doctor in my life. That is not...more

I thought that Dr. Bazile explained my problem to me and answered my questions very well. He was very patient answering questions from me and my husband and going page by page through my records to show me the pathology and ultrasound results. Unlike many other doctors I had seen, he understood my...more

Never see this Doctor, he is rude, obnoxious and cocky, I asked him a simple question about my condition so I can understand and he got mad and told me to leave, that I did not needed to be there, that I can chose another doctor. He made me cry so much, he said, you are here but you don't have to,...more

Based upon you scoring, you are obviously angry about something. As a board certified endocrinologist with 29 years of experience, bedside manner would not be one of my deficiencies. If I did ask you to leave the office, it's probably because you were being very disruptive to the office environment. Because of the challenge of the specialty itself, I try to spent as much time explaining the details and making sure that the patient gets a firm understanding of their disease and the treatment.
