Dr Lopez and the entire Norman parathyroid team we’re amazing. I’m grateful for the care I received. It was my first surgery and thankfully everything went smoothly. My neck hurt less and the scar looks way better than I imagined.

I had a wonderful experience. I came to Tampa for surgery and was nervous and somewhat scared. Dr Lopez certainly put me at ease. He assisted in my parathyroid surgery.

Dr. Lopez literally saved my life. After several years and multiple visits to endocrinologists, Dr. Lopez was the only physician that looked into my medical situation and diagnosed me. After several rounds of blood work, he determined that I needed parathyroid surgery. At the completion of the surgery, he removed 2 parathyroid tumors (registering PTH at almost 1000). He also diagnosed my Hashimoto disease. No other endocrinologist took me seriously. I was so sick, presented many symptoms and spent most weekends in bed out of exhaustion - but was dismissed by everyone except Dr. Lopez. He was 100% spot on. Since my surgery, my energy is returning; I've lost weight; my blood pressure is down - basically I am a new person. I have my life back. I will forever be appreciative of Dr. Lopez. … and he is hilarious too. When I felt the worst, Dr. Lopez made me laugh. If I could vote, Dr. Lopez would be the man of the year!

Dr Lopez performed my surgery for PHPT on 5/29/19. He was amazing! I am currently 5 days post op and am stunned by how great I feel. I knew I was sick and felt bad but I had no idea this surgery would make me feel this good. There is so much truth to feeling 25 years younger after this surgery. I had heard about it from others but you just can’t grasp what it means until you experience it. AMAZING! I hope and pray it lasts! R Cooper

Dr. Lopez was the lead surgeon for my parathyroidectomy. He was extremely professional, kind, and thorough during my consultation, and before and after my surgery. I traveled from VA to FL for my surgery as Dr. Lopez and the surgeons with the Norman Parathyroid Center (NPC) are world leaders in parathyroid surgery and hyperparathyroidism diagnosis. Anyone having a difficult time getting their primary care doctor or even their endocrinologist to approve the ONLY solution for hyperparathyroidism - surgery- may wish to consider contacting NPC. I am most grateful to everyone at NPC - from scheduling staff, administrative staff and receptionist to all the nurses and doctors. Looking forward to renewed good health.

Dr. Lopez is outstanding! Made a beautiful incision that has faded so much away 2 weeks post-op. He is smart, compassionate, & listened to my concerns with my genetic disorders. I can not say enough! The staff were awesome & made the entire experience a breeze. Im so happy I chose NPC to help save my life. I have no pain, after suffering for at least 10 years. Thanks for my do-over on my life!

Dr. Lopez along with Dr. Politz and Parrack performed a parathyroidectomy on 5/24/2017. The care I received was outstanding. Dr. Lopez helped me through the decision making process by providing me with all the information I needed to make an informed decision. From the first contact through my recovery, I was treated with respect, kindness and genuine concern. If you need parathyroid surgery go to the best surgeons at the Norman Parathyroid Center in Tampa, Florida!

I came to Tampa to have a parathyroidectomy. My case was more complicated due to a large nodule on my thyroid which was behind a vocal cord that was not where it was expected to be. Dr. Lopez, Dr. Norman, and Dr. Boone made an excellent team! I had a smooth procedure and even though I had to have a port installed, I still left the same day (no overnight stay). Dr. Lopez called to check on me and answered my questions. I have never had such excellent care from an exceptional medical team!

Awesome! I suspected something was up with my high calcium and PTH...GP and Endo were not convinced but I felt so crappy...I contacted the NPC, Dr. Lopez was my surgeon/consult...he suspected and gave me the option of exploratory or wait 6 months. I opted for exploratory in Tampa, boy was I thrilled I did. Dr. Lopez and team are wonderful, great personalities, awesome care, didn't hound you for money, and voila, he found TWO Adenomas! i knew it! Thank you, Dr. Lopez and team! Your nurses rule.

I am a physician and understand the special expertise necessary to diagnose and treat parathyroid problems. Dr Lopez and his team sorted through my symptoms and labs quickly. They were able to image a mass too small for my home town radiologists to see. My operation was smooth and reasonably comfortable. This team is the best at parathyroid disease and why I came from New Orleans to Tampa to work with them.
