The first visit I had with him, he spent some time with me trying to listen because I wasn't feeling the same even though my thyroid hormones are within the normal range. He tried to put me on a different medication one time and then after that he just said to return it to the one I was taking before because there really isn't anything else that can be done. I will always feel this way which was a terrible thing to say. The staff was very terrible!(in Gonzales Rd) Unprofessional!
