Fairfield seemed nice at first until he pressured me into having my thyroid out. I was having kidney stones frequently(every 6 months for a couple of years) and was told by Fairfield that if I had my thyroid out I would be guaranteed to not develop another stone because the thyroid controlled the formation of stones. Having experienced the incredible pain associated with passing a stone, I agreed. What a mistake! He never informed me I would be on thyroid meds for life, nor did he tell me there might be a chance I might be THE one in 500 that would continue to develop stones! So, when I had another stone surgery months later he just laughed and said I guess you were that ONE! I guess he needed to provide the hospital with a, what, $30-40 thousand dollar operation? What a joke he is. And, I trusted him and thought he knew what he was doing...apparently not. He is no longer at the hospital I first went to him as a doctor. So, beware and get a second opinion!

I saw dr Fairfield today and was disappointed. His secrataries informed me that he was knowledgable about the complicated medical data concerning sub acute thyroiditus I was diagnosed with by two doctors in Europe prior to moving to the usa. This was false. He was cold closedminded and opinionated and tried to proove that because my thyroid has a different presentation than hashimotos that I dont have thyroid problems at all. He believes that all subacute thyroiditus patients recover.Nonsense.

I recently was seen by Dr. Fairfield for a thyroid issue. I found his staff to be very pleasant and professional and their office to be clean and orderly. However, I found Dr. Fairfield himself to be rather closed-minded and lacking in interpersonal skills. I will be fair and give credit where it is due - I do think Dr. Fairfield is very knowledgeable about his field of medicine. If you can get past his acerbic personality, he is otherwise a good practitioner.
