Waste of time is all I can say to sum it up. I was told in order for him to help I needed to get sick again and have full blown hyperthyroidism. It was a waste of time and money to have even went. He could of told me that on the phone when his office staff made me fax lab work and ultrasound to his office before scheduling an appointment.

The doctor was with me 5 minutes after waiting almost 1 hour on the wating room They made me fill out a form and made me the same questions again to put in a computer , a waste of my time They don't answer the phones and it is a nightmare to obtain responses

I have no problem with the Doctor per se. My problem is with the office. Two months in a row, the pharmacy had to call for prescription authorization and I was unable to get it. The pharmacy called serve real times and was unable to get the authorization.
