Patient Comments (1)
in Hales Corners, WI |
Dr. Kotchen treated me like my weight gain post pregnancy was my fault and I was just lazy. He ordered thyroid tests and said they came in "normal" so I should go home & exercise more!! After I got over his arrogant & demoralizing statement, I made an apt with another doctor who "properly" diagnosed me with Hashimoto's Disease & Hypo thyroidism. Dr Kotchen believes his Harvard/Yale education excuses his awful bedside manner. He's not interested in real work, for the proper diagnosis. Sad.
