I left my former endocrinologist when he dismissed my complaints about tremors associated with my type 2 diabetes medication. He also seemed to be too quick to medicate. When I saw Dr Orozco, and told him the various diabetes meds were causing tremors, he listened, and changed the prescription, eliminating one and doubling the dosage on the other. Voila! No more tremors! The important thing is that he listened to me, and believed me, and I value that in a doctor. His staff is courteous and helpful, he is friendly, on time with his appointments, listens to my concerns, and answers my questions.

I was very concerned about getting 4 FNA's of my left thyroid gland and Dr. Orozco was wonderful. He explained everything and it went just like he'd explained. He was kind and gentle and the after care was great. It does feel like pressure but it wasn't hard to handle. I'd read the reviews, took the advice and kept my eyes closed. He talks to you while it is happening and there were no surprises. I was in his Swansboro office and I think it is the best.

I found Dr Orozco to be informative and frank with what I need to do to help manage my diabetes.He told me what medicine I should be taking instead of what I wanted to take.I found it refreshing that a doctor would be upfront and honest with me and that is what is in my best interest.He knows his stuff.
