Dr. Shah is amazing; my former endocrinologist and many other doctors I have been to were so ignorant and didn't understand my thyroid issues. They always got mad at me and one even told me if I keep being lazy and eating horribly, there's nothing I can do about being tired and chubby. I was exercising and eating a decent diet, but my old endocrinologist didn't believe me. The first time I met Dr. Shah, he spent 1.5 hours with me and ordered a lot more blood tests than most doctors are willing to do or understand. He also discussed other hormone issues that I may be having and ordered tests for those too. EVERYTHING he suspected and that no other doctor ever told me about were confirmed through the blood tests. We found that I am iodine deficient, that my body doesn't properly convert T4 so I should be on T3, that I am hypoglycemic, that I have adrenal fatigue, and that I have estrogen deficiency. No wonder I've felt so bad for the past 7-10 years! YEARS have been wasted where I've felt horrible because other doctors are the opposite of Dr. Shah. He's very kind, professional, and thorough. He doesn't rush you out of his office within 15 minutes and try to nickel and dime you. As for any supplements he may recommend, get them from him the first time around and then buy them online. He doesn't mind - he just wants you to get well. I've been on the correct medication and taking the supplements he recommended for nearly 3 months and I feel a gazillion times better. I am still working with Dr. Shah on losing weight to get rid of the excess that having such a low metabolism due to thyroid disease and other hormonal imbalances has caused. In fact, I will be seeing him tomorrow and am actually looking forward to it, as opposed to my bunk endocrinologists in the past. If you are suffering from what you suspect is underactive thyroid or any other ailment that others haven't been able to fix, go to Dr. Shah. He's amazing. The day he retires is the day I'll go into a panic attack!
