      She is too busy and too rushed. Never calls back, though rushed staff person will call back. Can't schedule follow up appointment. So I cannot get my concerns voiced or addressed.
      in Ventura, CA |
      Dr Ficks is an exceptional endocrinologist & I've known many having lived in Venura 29 years & suffering from thyroid disorders. Dr Ficks is without a doubt the best & most thorough diagnostician I've ever had. Besides, she knows you personally and takes the time of day to notice changes in demeanor. I've had very serious thyroid problems for years, and she has made me feel my best through careful monitoring.

      She sets you up for a lab test and says "I want to see you in a week". Her staff says "okay, you?re on the waiting list to see her, which is in three months" What then? Never a follow up, just another digit to her day. Thanks for nothing.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
