Coal City, IL |
She has taken on more than she can handle. I had my thyroid removed months ago and cant even get an appt with her even after calling with great concern. I had my first number draw and had to call twice just to get them to look at it. Before surgery I called 4 days in advance just to get a physical before surgery no one could squeeze me in anywhere even though I am completely healthy and it took 5 minutes at Dreyer. My surgery would have been cancelled without it.. Go elsewhere.

I take Armour for Hashimoto's. She said it's a voodoo drug, been around 100 years and is bad. She said I had to take Synthroid as there are no side effects - the side effects I experience are from something else. She would not listen to me. She said you have to go by the numbers, not how you feel. Anyone who has Hashimoto's knows this to be wrong. If a medicine makes you sleep for 26 hours, something's seriously wrong! My hair fell out so badly, people thought I was on chemo.

didnt treat my disease right and caused further health problems. She dont listen. I fired her and found a new doctor. one size fits all treatments dont work on everyone.

I went to her after being diagnosed with hashimotos thyroiditis. SHe perscribed levothyroxine which caused my symptoms to become 10 times worse. I told her how it was causing severe depression and other bad side effects I didn't have when I didnt take the medicine. she said my tsh numbers were fine and that I needed to seek mental health. later finding out at a diff doctor that SHe ran the test that showed I cant convert that medicine which was causing my mental state. doing fine with new doc.
