      4 years later after stage 3 thyroid cancer and with the expert surgery of Dr Persky And his excellent referrals for my continuing care I am in excellent health .
      in New York, NY |
      Dr. Persky is arrogant, condescending, patronizing, and would greatly benefit from a refresher course in how to respectfully talk to patients. Not only is he incredibly arrogant, but he is also incompetent, as evidenced by the fact that I saw him for months with a malignant tumor, which he insisted was benign. Due to his refusal to acknowledge the fact that the tumor could have been malignant (there were squamous cells in the needle biopsy), precious months were wasted with his blundering.
      in New York, NY |
      Although I expressed concern about becoming hypothyroid after my hemithyroidectomy, I was told by Dr. Persky I would be fine. He neglected to test me for a common thyroid disease, Hashimoto's, which left me severely hypothyroid after the surgery. He did not explain any risks. In addition, I used another surgeon to complete the removal of my thyroid and she said it looked like he put his thumb in there, due to the amount of scar tissue she found and made my surgery with her very difficult.

      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.
