in Carlsbad, CA |
I just moved from out of state and just before moving had been diagnosed with a thyroid condition. Dr. Aiken took her time with me, gave me a game plan, and has a great bed side manner. When my medication had undesirable side-effects she worked with me until we found a good match. She is relaxed, approachable, and very easy to talk with. Even when I wasn't following orders -- she didn't talk down to me. I'm very happy I found her.

Procedures Performed

Dr. Aiken says..

I have 30 years experience doing In Vitro Fertilization, transvaginal ultrasound, inseminations, uterine biopsies, ultrasounds and thyroid biopsies successfully. I enjoy ultrasound guided procedures because it is so gratifying to watch what you are doing in real time on an ultrasound screen, and know you are exactly positioned where you want to be when doing a biopsy or an egg aspiration or an embryo transfer.

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.

Dr. Aiken says...

As an endocinologist and an integrative medicine specialist I enjoy treating patients who are invested in their own care.  I enjoy solving puzzles, and figuring out the sometimes complex pathways leading to a person's illness. What sets me apart from most physicians is my attention to detail, but also my ability to see the bigger picture; the whole person.  I seek to treat the cause of a disorder if possible, rather than the outcome, but ideally I prefer to evaluate risk factors, and educate patients to prevent disease.
