From what you have told us about the doctor, I would not waste one more minute of time there. Just consider the following and you will understand what I mean.
A good thyroid doctor will treat a hypo patient clinically by testing and adjusting Free T3 and Free T4 as necessary to relieve symptoms, without being constrained by resultant TSH levels. You can get some good insight into clinical treatment from this letter written by a good thyroid doctor for patients that he sometimes consults with after initial tests and evaluation. The letter is then sent to the participating doctor of the patient to help guide treatment. In the letter, please note the statement, "the ultimate
criterion for dose adjustment must always be the clinical response of the patient."
I'd be glad to try and give you a doctor recommendation for your area, if I have one on my listing of member recommended doctors. Please be more specific about your location. As you Texans are always reminding us, it is a big place. LOL
I live near Marshall and Longview Texas. A big thanks I can live with some of the symptoms but not all of them. A better quality of life..
I have a number of member recommended thyroid doctors in the Ft. Worth/ Dallas area. Is that close enough to be of interest to you?
Dallas about 3 hours away lol kinda far. Thanks for looking.
