This was a horrible experience. Dr Forwith comes highly recommended?? I would never send anyone to this place. After waiting an hour and a half he saw me and basically laughed at me.

TSH .005 is clearly hyperthyroid, not hypo! I'm sorry you felt brushed off. I remember you quite well as I considerable time trying to help. I try to use humor to lighten the mood - I'm sorry you took it the wrong way. I have never met a patient with that low of a TSH that wasn't miserable so I hope you get the help you need for your overactive, not underactive thyroid. I'm sorry that you felt brushed off - you wanted more thyroid medicine from me and that is the last thing you need!

I definitely recommend seeing Dr Forwith for anything thyroid related. He put me at ease about a scary situation and fully explained and answered all my questions. His staff is wonderful and they all gave me plenty of attention and didn't make me feel rushed.
