Thyroid Doctor In New York

Selecting a thyroid doctor in new york or any city can be a daunting task for most lay persons. We may know our risk factors, be aware of a few symptoms that are present, but we really do not know if we should seek physicians with expertise in Gastroenterology, Respiratory, Endocrinology or Cardiology.

The Right Thyroid Doctor in New York for You

Doctor-Thyroid-NYCIn order to determine the right thyroid doctor in new york to whom you give your current and future well–being care, become familiar with the prospective physician’s reputation. Review the individual thyroid doctor in new york’s memberships, honors and participation in medical journals. Read the reviews published by other patients and weigh them.

The highest imperative for your finding the right thyroid doctor in new york for you is the rapport and bonding you experience when consulting with him. We have all had the experience of going to a physician praised by our friend as the most caring, considerate and sensitive of all creatures, only to be disappointed with him during our own visit. That falls under an immeasurable category of personal bonding, and does not mean you or your friend erred.

The following are the medical guidelines, provided to acquaint the new patient with treatments for thyroid issues:

  • Minimum Medication ApproachSome practitioners take the conservative approach with the lowest dose of medication, and target the top end of the normal range of a TSH level.
    • This approach is controversial due to patients having no difficulty taking thyroid medications.
    • Monitoring of dosage and tolerance should be conducted on elderly and people with preexisting heart issues.
  • Middle Range MedicationSome doctors provide enough thyroid hormone replacement for the TSH level to range in the middle normal rate, using the former normal range of approximately 0.5 to 5.0 to 6.0.


  • Holistic Practitioners – 1.0 to 2.0 RangeHolistic practitioners focus on TSH between 1.0 and 2.0. This is based not on research, but on clinical experience.
    • Medication to Eliminate Symptoms
      Some practitioners from the holistic or alternative community believe TSH levels irrelevant in patient management. They may test TSH, but target resolution of thyroid symptoms.
