Patient Comments (1)
Terrible. I have Hashimoto's and was referred by my OBGYN because my anti-bodies were very high. The first appoinemt was fine and she adjusted my meds. I went to have my levels checks about 3 months later and she only ordered my TSH levels to be checked. Makes absolutely no sense, TSH levels mean nothing without all the thyroid markets. I called to check with the nurse and said I was very confused why a complete panel wasn't taken, he said she only checks TSH. Old school, never going back.
