Dr Oberwetter seemed threatened by another performing blood work for my overall health data that included thyroid results as though he didn't want another playing in HIS sandbox. He could have shown curiosity or interest in my overall well-being and suggested that he would like to help me but perhaps my other more naturopathic approach was getting in the way or not supporting his treatment, but instead he bashed all Eastern medicine and terminated me as a patient. Very unprofessional.

If I could give zero stars I would. His office and manner is completely unprofessional. He does not care about his patients.
Louisville, CO |
Dr Oberwetter is a nice enough guy, but he advised me to ignore any research on the internet regarding my symptoms...a terrible thing for a doctor to suggest in this day and age, where healthcare is often strongly based on economic considerations. Today's patients MUST conduct their own research & be their own advocate or risk receiving faulty/inadequate care. I think he wants his patients to only trust in his expertise and ignore the opinions of others. Not an approach I agree with at all.
