Wonderful doctor . Listens and takes time with his patients. First person to be able to determine the cause of my symptoms. Always stays current on latest research. Kind. Truly changed my life. Advocates for his patients.

Without hesitation I fully recommend Dr Maclaren. I first saw him to have my medications adjusted. Originally synthroid and metformin were recommended but no doctor I had seen in 10 years took the time or energy to modify and correct my dosage. Dr Maclaren took blood tests amongst other tests and then corrected my dosage. He also made some very modest and informative comments on why certain foods are not recommended for me.

I never leave bad reviews. However, in patient interest, I am. I was told I have Hashimoto's disease "eat less & lose fat." My colleague went & got the same diagnosis and never got blood work back. Also, she was told "you're fat, eat less." 4 mos later, she went to another endo who said her thyroid levels were dangerously low & needed synthroid ASAP. There are many helpful solutions such as enzymes, probiotics, etc. to manage this disease. I wish I heard these options and felt supported.
I had been to 3 other doctors who could not diagnose my problem and my health was really suffering. At the first appointment, Dr. Maclaren gave me a probable diagnosis and about a week later, lab results showed that he was 100% correct. He is thorough, kind, very knowledgeable, and breaks things down so that you can understand them. Hands-down one of the best physicians I ever met and he really cares about his patients. This man definitely saved my life and I am very thankful for him.

Wonderful and extremely knowledgeable. I recommend him all the time even to those that have their own doctor because I think he's the best! I've been a patient since 2012. Dr. Maclaren doesn't give a quick fix, he gives you the right fix with or without script. He explains what and why. He's the best doctor and definitely one of my favorites with absolute adoration-

Dr. McLaren takes his time and ensures all my concerns are taken care off. I had issues with my insurance in the middle of my treatment and stayed with him even though he is out of my insurance network.
