A very busy office but efficiently run, I didn't have to wait long to see him. His P.A. Tara is friendly and does her job well, the front office staff are accommodating and nice. Dr. Litchfield has a relaxed manner and makes you feel comfortable, not rushed so it's easy to converse with him about your symptoms and to get answers to questions. An excellent, caring Endocrinologist who I've recommended many times.

I was very ill and saw the doctor once and the rest of my visit i saw 2-3 Nurse practitioners. The first one double my dosage and I damaged my liver and went from hyper to hypo and back to hyper all in two weeks. The next one was nice but told me they cant do anything and I could go into a storm thyroid and die. They charged me full price because they said they did not like my insurance but once they were paid I would be reimbursed. Right... They never called me to see how I was doing

My wife had Hyperthyroidism and was treated by an excellent Dr in our previous city. When we decided to move we asked that doctor for a recommendation for a new doctor in Las Vegas. He suggested his classmate from Harvard, Dr. Litchfield. From the beginning Dr. Litchfield communicated very well and patiently answered all our questions. His manner is very warm and caring. We see him every six months and on only one occasion did we see anyone else in his place.

I felt Dr. Litchfield didn't care about my health. I rarely saw him and most often saw the PA. I think I should have time with the doctor not the PA. When I did see Dr Litchfield he dismissed my concerns quite rudely, stating all my symptoms were normal for Hypothyroid. No words of advice nor guidance. I would not recommend this doctor at all. Treats his patients like cattle sending them to the PA, and dismisses your health concerns. I think Litchfield is jaded and disconnected.
