I have been trying to compile a listing of doctors recommended by Forum members. Unfortunately I don't have one for your area right now. If no one else comes up with a name, you can at least have a look at this listing of Top Thyroid Doctors in the Mass. area. Boston seems to have a number that received good patient reviews.
One of the ways I have found to be valuable in trying to find a good thyroid doctor is to call and ask to speak to a nurse, to get answers to a couple of questions before making an appointment. This has never failed to get a nurse on the line. then I ask if the doctor is willing to treat a patient by testing and adjusting levels of free T3 and free T4, with whatever meds are required to relieve symptoms, without being constrained by resultant TSH levels. I also ask if the doctor is willing to prescribe meds other than T4 types. If the answer to either question is no, then I keep on looking for a good thyroid doctor.
If you try one of the listed doctors, please let me know if you would recommend to other members.
Cool Gimel!!! - you're helping me on this? - GREAT!
I have plenty to go over with you to get this accomplished and posted.
Let's talk soon.
This is incredibly helpful!! I'm so tired of being told my thyroid levels are fine and to see a shrink or take antidepressants. Thank you so much!!
