would this be a good person to see for thyroid problems?

Is a Osteopath Neuropathologist a good person to see for thyroid problems ?

Re: would this be a good person to see for thyroid problems?

From what I have read on the boards here, osteopathic docs seem to generally be better for getting a thyroid diagnosis and treatment. However, the specific one you list here, a neuropathologist, probably would not be the way to go. That basically means that they specialize in disorders of nerves, which the thyroid gland is not. So you might run into the problem that this doc just doesn't do thyroids. I would look for a DO that specializes in general practice or internal medicine, and ask the office if they treat thyroid disorders (also check the info archive on this board for other questions to ask a prospective doc).

I wouldn't think so, but you never can tell. Ask before you make an appointment.
