What People Say About Dr. Joseph Hines, MD
Reply
Will not do a full lab panel for thyroid and only treats with Synthroid. If your looking for a doctor that actually covers everything involving the thyroid, keep looking. You will be undertreated here. Everyone working here will treat your issue the same because I have tried them all.

I have been a patient for over 15 years and find Dr. Hines to be caring, competent ,a good listener. He explains everything so that you can understand and make prudent decisions. He takes time with you and I feel I have the best possible care available in Erie as his patient.
