Dr. Leslie often hears from her patients 'you get it' and that is because conventional medicine misses 2/3 of the thyroid cases due to inadequate testing. Dr. Leslie DeGasparis takes the time to listen to how you are truly feeling in order to make an accurate diagnosis and create a treatment plan that works. Thyroid problems affect millions of Americans on a daily basis, especially women, and Hashimoto's hypothyroidism is the most common autoimmune condition in the United States. Dr. Leslie makes it her life's work to find and help people suffering with these issues.With over 13 years of experience and research, she has found that thyroid problems are commonly under diagnosed or poorly managed by conventional approaches. Standard testing without the right analysis is often inadequate and patients are told their test results are "normal" when patients know that there is still something not right with their health.

No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?

No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor’s board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.

"My philosophy is that standard testing does not show the whole, definitive picture – I take the time to get to know your health goals and concerns, do thorough and detailed testing and then together create a plan that gets you results. It has been very rewarding over the years to collaborate with all my patients to help find the answers they have been seeking. I am highly dedicated to personalized and comprehensive care and the outcomes that can significantly improve your life. I like having a partnership with my patients - I have the medical knowledge and you have your own personal knowledge – so combined we are able to get to the root of any health issues you are experiencing."
