There are many symptoms of thyroid disease. Actually, you don’t have to have all the symptoms to have a problem. If you have muscle and joint pain, fatigue, trouble concentrating, weight gain or weight loss, constipation, just to name a few, you need to be screen for thyroid disease.

What we have available are the capability to do thyroid ultrasounds, thyroid biopsy, radioactive iodine uptake and scan and radioactive iodine treatment. There are many, many symptoms of thyroid disease and let us help you find the one you have.
We will help you get started on thyroid medication to alleviate your symptoms. We believe in the patient and their symptoms even if their results are borderline.

We are different when it comes to thyroid treatment. We believe in treating the patient and their symptoms while assessing all of their laboratory data. We use the best lab and reference ranges specific and tailored to the patient’s needs. We do not fail to recognize early thyroid disease. We do not fail in recognizing early, the many symptoms of hypothyroidism / hyperthyroidism, or nodules.
If you are being referred to our institute about your thyroid, bring you laboratory data and any medical records if you have them. Don’t be shy on telling us what has worked and what has not worked for you and your thyroid problem.
Please request an appointment to be seen. We will have an opening for you at your convenience.
Some info on the thyroid
Your thyroid gland produces hormones that control how quickly the body uses energy, makes proteins, and controls how sensitive your body is to other hormones. Our practice specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid disorders, including thyroid cancer, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, thyroid nodules, and goiters. We have the advanced capability to perform extensive diagnostic testing including biopsies, ultrasonography, and will soon offer radioactive iodine uptake studies in our office.
Many times thyroid nodules present no symptoms. However, weight loss, nervousness, neck swelling and difficulty swallowing could indicate the presence of nodules
