Thyroid Savvy MDs in Texas!

I posted a while ago looking for a thyroid savvy MD in Central Texas. Since I didn't get any responses, I am expanding my search to Texas. I would travel if I knew it's not in vain.

Re: Thyroid Savvy MDs in Texas!

I'm not familiar with Texas geography, and the map I'm pulling up shows sparse population in what I'd consider the "central" part of the state. Can you post more specifically the towns/cities where you're willing to travel?

Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, Houston would be the easiest access, but I would go anywhere in Texas. Temple seems to have many doctors associated with Scott and White, but some have no ratings posted, others' ratings don't mention specifically what I need to know.

Re: Thyroid Savvy MDs in Texas!

In Houston, Dr. Steven Hotze is said to be The Man. He's a nationally known thyroid expert who knows and tries to debunk all the thyroid myths.

Also in Houston, several people on this board have seen and liked Dr. Vivian Rodriguez.

In Austin, Dr. Ron Manzanero (Family Practice) is patient recommended. Also in Austin - Dr. Ruthie Harper, Internal Medicine/Nutrition/Natural Hormones.


In Ft. Worth, these have good patient reviews:
Dr. Jamie Castro Endocrinologist
Dr. Paul J. Goldman, Internal Medicine
Dr. Kenneth Mair, endocrinologist
Sheila Horsley, Preventive and Family Medicine
Dr. Larry Sharp, Family Practice
Darren Lackan, M.D. , Endocrinologist

As with any patient-based recommendation, your mileage may vary.
Good luck with it!

Re: Thyroid Savvy MDs in Texas!

I use a Nurse Practitioner that has been the most helpful in my 25 plus years of trying to get this straight! However she will be on maternity leave until January. She is at the St. Joseph Clinic in Franklin, TX.
