This was my first time visiting Dr. Andrews and I love this guy, he takes the time to actually listen to you and get to know you. I could tell that he really cares about me and his other patients. He had some really great suggestions on how to improve my lifestyle that other Doctors would have dismissed and moved onto the next patient.

My elderly mother after a year of dealing with a up & down thyroid, Dr Andrews settled our fears. Completely confident in his ability to get it under control. Nice doctor, knowledgeable & willing to use all tools available. Very pleasant & My mother will finally get back to some level of normalcy. Staff is professional & kind. Office is clean, everything, everywhere sanitized. Dr Andrews takes the extra step to personally call with test results, always a plus. Good doctor!
