Several months ago I left a terrible review for Dr. Terrana. It was completely misdirected anger. I had had my thyroid checked for the last five or six years, and was assured it was not cancerous. The goiters became so large I went to a surgeon, Dr. Brian Untch Who agreed that it was not cancer. My thyroid was removed by Dr. Untch and nine days later I got news that in fact it was cancer hidden in my massive goiters. . I was mad, and hurt. No one could have seen that I had thyroid cancer. I completely retract my first review against Dr. Terrana because it was no fault of his. It was a second cancer diagnosis for me, the first one being breast cancer. I did not continue to see Dr. Terrana for six years because I thought he was a terrible doctor.he is wonderful. His waiting time in his office is minimal his staff is extremely courteous, and Dr. Terrana remarkable. I do hope he excepts my apologies, and I recommend anybody I know to go see this wonderful doctor. Thank you Dr Terrana

Dr. Terrana is one of the most compassionate, patient, & patient advocate doctors that I have met. From day one 10 years ago, Dr. Terrana and his staff has answered every question I have & was the only Dr. that would prescribe a not popular big money maker medicine that works for me. I was so happy with him I sent my daughter to him, who for 5 years had almost lost her life after thyroid cancer surgery, because doctors did not listen to her. Thank you Dr. Terrana & your kind professional staff

Dr. Terrana is a kind, compassionate, knowledgeable doctor. I was in search of a new endocrinologist and I needed an emergency appointment. His secretary did everything she could to fit me in immediately. He made me feel so comfortable and was very thorough with how he explained various things to me. He spent almost an hour going through everything during my appointment. I would highly recommend him.

I went to Dr. Terrana for a second opinion, since my last Dr I was not satisfied with. I'm so happy I found Dr. Terrana, he is the most passionate, caring, understanding Dr. I have ever met. He makes you feel so comfortable and definitely takes his time explaining things to you. I wish all my Dr.'s were like him. I couldn't have asked for a better Dr. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him, I am so upset I wasted my time with the first Dr. just because the office was close to home.
