Have called three times over the past week to get an Rx refill. No answers, just recording so I left voice mail. Got no calls back. Am now totally out of thyroid meds. Calling again as I type this, opted for main extension. I've been on hold now for over 25 minutes. It's like no one is there - ever.

Don’t waste your time to see this provider , he didn’t want to listen, he asked a question, before you answered he talks over you. The listed reviews are no lie exactly that’s how the way he treated me as well . He seems he is ready to retire tired of his job or something. The first Doc I am very disappointed with. He loves to order blood work with in a month apart who does that, my condition is not even chronic..

I've seen Dr. Carella three times over a 1 year period. It took me over a month to get in for my most recent appointment. I had been feeling very poorly and kept a log of my symptoms as well as a list of detailed questions. When he came in he asked rapid-fire questions for 2-3 minutes then walked out and said he'd be back but didn't return. I asked the nurse to have him return so I could ask my questions. She treated it like an odd request and inconvenience. I couldn't believe the treatment!

He was very interested in my condition the very first visit. He asked a lot of questions and sent me to have several bloods test done. I was so excited I thought I have found the doctor who was going to help me with autoimmune disease. However, when I went for my second visit he barely talk to me. He didnt explain much about the test results. He asked the same questions from the previous visit and told me to com back in 6 month.. I wont be coming back anytime soon.

I was told that I could try synthetic replacement thyroid, but if I didn't like that I could go back to Armour. He changed his mind when I said that the synthetic didn't work as well. He will not prescribe Armour for me now. I will be changing doctors.

He was not really present and listening when I tried to answer his questions. He asked me to keep a detailed log for 45 days and then said he really didn't need it when I tried to show him, even though my condition had not improved.
