I warned you about the Endos around here.
Not a one has been recommeded as good for thyroids. I have the best diabetes endo on hold.. but I do not need diabetic treatment! Dr. Yates is one of the best GI guys around. He has really done well by my husband. Not sure his take on thyroids. Try Dr. Natalie Johnson before you go off to another Endo. So far she has helped all other thyroid patients I personally recommended.
As to other MDs.. Dr. Hollie is a great asthma/immunology MD. He will send you to Emory in Georgia for thyroid treatment. My Cardio send his patients to Vanderbilt or Birmingham for thyroid Endo care. Dr. Vernon is a great sleep specialist/IM/Pulmonologist. Top notch and works with pediatrics as well as adults.
Now the ENT you want.. Dr. Christopher St. Charles. He is my gem. Cream of the crop for surgery. Okay.. now I have you fixed with my top pickings.
Some have offices in Hixson as well as Chattanooga. St. Charles and Hollie in particular have Hixson and Cleveland days.
