Re: Thyroid specialist
There are two "thyroid specialists" that I know of in Houston. Both have written books on thyroid disease. One, Dr. R., I did not have a pleasant experience with. He told me I needed to see a psychiatrist, because I had some anxiety issues. Well, to me anxiety comes from whatever my thyroid disease process is. I have a stress free life, and it so happened to start when I started with thyroid issues. All he did for me was give me a tetanus shot, which is not what I went for. A few years later I was diagnosed with Hashimotos by a Dr. A in Houston. He was very helpful in getting down to a "diagnosis", but little good that did as I don't tolerate thyroid meds, so I just stay like I have been for the past few years. The latter doctor charges you up front, and he is expensive as far as the office visit and the lab charges. My FNA and ultrasound were covered by my insurance as they were in participating hospitals. This doctor also found my husband's thyroid disease. I belong to another group that is strictly texas thyroid people, and they have more info, but I am unable, on this forum, to get you to that other information.
