Over the past 13 years, I have had several endocrinologists and found they were pretty much the same, prescribing the predictable medications for diabetes, lecturing about diet and exercise and offering little that I already didn't know. Dr. Litchfield actually listens to his patients before devising a plan for treatment, and to use the cliche, he thinks outside the box. He explains all options clearly and in terms civilians can understand, something I have found is rare among endocrinologists. Dr. Litchfield used a white board to present and organize a plan that represented my unique situation, and has given me optimism that I have found the right doctor. He is a good listener, obviously a competent, caring specialist with the background and tools to help his patients cope with medical issues such as diabetes. I have complete confidence in Dr. Litchfield.

He saved my life and for 12 years DR. LITCHFIELD has kept me on track and healthy. No other Doctor be it GP or specialist, could diagnose me with any accuracy but he nailed my thyroid disorder on the first visit. He then proved his diagnosis with the correct tests and an ultrasound that he did himself. DR. LITCHFIELD is Harvard educated, intelligent and he cares about all his patients. His staff are efficient and friendly. IF you want an Endocrinologist who gets straight to the problem and gets you back to health, DR. LITCHFIELD is the one for you.

Don't bother with these people. They want me to see them before they refill my Metformin which is a drug I need for my diabetes. Will not even give me a month's worth until I can get in to see them. Plus with the virus going around I do not want to be in a doctor's office if I do not have to be. My wife asked them what difference does it make whether they see me or not my condition hasn't changed in 3 years, and no answer.

Worst doctor and staff. Neither listens to what u say. 21st century and no one in office has email contact. I prefer contact thru email. Dr automatically believes staff over patients. Dr cancelled appt at last minute. Left me high and dry. Now have no Dr for my prescriptions, which was about the only thing he was good for. I'm type 2 diabetic and almost out of meds. Now what do I do??

I was a patient until i left Las Vegas about 6 years ago. I recently came back and his staff said that after 6 years I would be considered new patient and he's not interested. Poor attitude, he's obviously not the same person I liked 6 years ago.

Dr. Litchfield seems to care only about money and most of the time his PAs would see you. No refills unless you have seen them in last 3 months. Will give you free samples and would try to squeeze money from insurance for this samples. Dr. is greedy and support staff is rude.

I questioned a high level on my lab work. Doctor was condescending and dismissed my question and didn't address the underlying issue that caused the high level. When i switched to a new endocrinologist, he ordered an MRI to address the cause of my abnormal result. My condition is currently being treated with medication and the underlying issue is being monitored by my new doctor. I had a medical issue Dr. Litchfield ignored. I wouldn't recommend this doctor.

After standing at the counter watching the staff ignore for ten minutes I was told my appointment would cost $300 after insurance just to see him. For the mediocre review's I figured it wasn't worth the time I drove out. Only scheduled an appointment because I heard he would up my meds without really caring.

I read through the reviews before going to see Dr. Litchfield, on this and other sites. Most patients were happy with their visit, some weren't but I decided to go, I'm glad I did. They were all very professional and kind, from start to finish everything went well. The practice is busy and there are other Doctors, when I made another appointment I expressed my desire to be seen only by him and have been accommodated.

Upon scheduling my first appointment with Dr Litchfield, I was given a day and time, that was misquoted. Due to a conflict, I needed to reschedule. Per notes- noted on the website indicated the hours of operation being 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., however, I was unable to reach anyone until 8 a.m.. Once I reached the front office staff, I was told, due to my inability to keep the appointment I compromised patient care. Iceland show no respect; calling me by my first name, she was then rude , unprofessi

When I first saw Dr. Litchfield he was great. But every visit after, and I have been going to him for a couple of years now, you see only his staff members. It's almost as though he is available for first time visits only. It's not a big deal, but just saying don't except to see him after your initial visit.

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.
