I really liked Dr V (as he is called), he is a very thorough Dr. He explained exactly what was going with my thyroid & what we were going to do. I was very impressed.
in San Antonio, TX |
He's knowledgeable, but his bedside manner is horrible. Half the time, he ignores questions and fires off a short answer and moves on to something else. He actually told me I had to get my thyroid removed, without consulting with me about it at all. It took several visits for him to explain fully why he recommended that.. It just seems like he wants to get rid of you as quickly as possible.
in Seguin, TX |
I would recommend him because he explains my condition to where I understand it, not just in doctor terms.
