Costa Mesa, CA |
Based on some reviews & frankly a pic used on his website I was poised to research a new endocrinologist...however I actually had a good experience. When I called to make the appt the person was very friendly. At the office, people coming out seemed happy. The person at the front desk was very nice. I did not wait long to see the doctor. The room was clean and good sized. Dr. Opgaard was pleasant, listened and made sure my concerns were addressed. I left feeling confident I had good information

Dr. Oppgaard was very nice. I went for a second opinion on unusual antibody lab results. Punctual, not rushed, willing to answer questions and he readily admits limitations (i hate it when drs pretend to understand stuff they clearly have no clue about). He listened and we talked for about 30 minutes. He is one of those docs that worships tsh so I wouldnt use him as a regular doc for hypothyroid but overall he was pretty good.

They made some major mistakes wasting my time. I understand it's Obama medical but this doctor does nothing.

Leaves with saying I diagnose but I don't treat.
