Looking for a doctor who prescribes Erfa for thyroid disease

Hi there, I'm looking for a doctor or endo in Ottawa, Ontario that will prescribe the natural dessicated thyroid meds called ERFA. Any help will be appreciated. By the way I cannot afford a naturo-path (I believe that's what they are called )....thanks to anyone who can help.

I know it would be quite a hike but I recommend Dr. Direnfield in Toronto. I started seeing him in February, he is thorough and really looks at everything! He switched me to Erfa at my first appt. His waiting list is long but ask to be called for cancellations. He practices integrative medicine.

I suggest you try Colleen McQuarry of the Ottawa Integrated health Centre in Ottawa. She's an ND, but may be able to put you in touch with an endo who can prescribe it. She's on Carling Ave. If you type her name into your browser, her info and web site will appear. I hope you don't have to go as far as Toronto. My GP prescribes it now. I call it dessicated thyroid.

Good luck!
