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.

You will never see the Dr. unless you request it specifically.

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.
in Henderson, NV |
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.
