Does not know how to diagnose hypothyroidism. Anything within range is not suitable.
in St Joseph, MO |
Getting an appointment is easy. The 5 times I have been here have been fine. Dr.Zhou forgot who I was and had to ask everything that happened when I had already been in multiple times. She gave me Qsymia and didn't follow the dosage requirements and took me off cold turkey. She gives me whatever medicine and doesn't care how itll affect her patients. They also won't fight for you with your insurance so expect to pay full price.

My husband and I have both been seeing Dr. Zhou for diabetes care for serveral years. We find her to be very knowledgeable and compassionate. We are comfortable discussing our health with her and her staff.
