Says Shomon, "I recommend patients initially find an endocrinologist for diagnosis, treatment and followup of thyroid cancer, Graves' disease and evaluation of nodules. But for properly diagnosing, treating and managing hypothyroidism, many patients find a holistic/integrative practitioner, GP, gynecologist, or other doctor who has taken a personal interest in treating thyroid patients to be a more effective choice."
KEY TIP: The free online "Thyroid Top Doctors Directory" at http://www.thyroid-info.com/topdrs features a state-by-state and country-specific listing of doctors who have been highly recommended by thyroid patients in their care.
