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.
Dee, there is a poster on the board, I think it is Dea____ (can't remember it all). She sees someone, I believe a D.O., in Conroe that she has had success with. You may see her reply soon. I am not 100% sure, but for some reason I think it is an Asian name, so I don't know if it is Dr. Chang or not. Also, I have heard people have success with Dr. Vivian Rodriguez in the Medical Center. I personally have not seen her so I can't vouch, but she sounds like a good listener and thinks beyond the TSH. Let us know if you find someone you like.
