I couldn't thank my friend enough for referring me here. Dr. Leslie listens and cares for you like a friend rather than treat you like a case file to get through for the day. I been through my primary and also 3 specialists telling me that my thyroid is "normal" with no explanation or effort to help me with my weird weight gain. Dr. Leslie knew right away what was wrong and I lost 32 pounds this year. My hair has grown back thicker and I'm having the energy I once had to spend with my kids!

Dr. DeGasparis says...

Patients often come to Dr. Leslie after seeing several doctors for hormone, thyroid and nutrition issues and have still not found any resolution to their health concerns. Dr. Leslie is known for being a great listener, a tenacious researcher and analyst, a true advocate for her patients and for giving them the tools needed so they can be in the driver's seat when it comes to accomplishing their health goals.

She helps patients with thyroid and related hormonal imbalances that can occur for many reasons. She takes into account adrenal and reproductive hormones, as well as the thyroid hormone balance for optimizing her patient's health. She works with both men and women, and also often helps significantly with infertility issues, pregnancy and postpartum issues, as well as menopausal hormone imbalances. She is also an expert in identifying if undiagnosed hypothyroidism is a primary cause of infertility issues for her patients, as it often is, and is often missed by fertility specialists. She can work closely with a patient's primary doctor including a patient's Ob-Gyn to help consult and combine efforts to create the best solution for long-term health.

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.
