She did not listen to anything I said and told me that I probably had cancer and sent me for a MRI. I have complained that my testosterone level is too low and that she needs to raise the dose and get me to the 50th percentile as far as the blood level and she told me she didn’t want a 50 year old...Read More

She made my health worse by prescribing double dosage of levothryoxine for fatigue (which she did not believe) instead of ordering a T3 test (which I had requested). This cost me my job because I was stressed. She also didn't believe me that I was eating well but gaining weight. Worst yet, she...Read More
