Default Durham/Chapel Hill endocrinologist?

How about an endocrinologist in the Durham/ Chapel Hill area? I especially need one who focuses on thyroid, not diabetes. Thanks!

I just did this thread on Best Doctors In North Carolina and you can find about every field
Best Doctors, which polls physicians nationwide, received record responses for the 2008-09 list. Doctors are asked whom they would choose if they or a member of their family needed a specialist. Fewer than 5% of North Carolina's 29,000 licensed physicians made the list.


In the RDUe area on the Best Doctors in the state list for
ENDOCRINOLOGY AND METABOLISM

I really liked Dr. Weir at Raleigh Endocrine Associates; she was great to work with and diagnosed my thyroid problem and recommended treatment I responded well to. I HATED the office--her nurse was great, but the front office staff were difficult to deal with and I had problems getting prescriptions filled--I think because the office staff were overwhelmed or just weren't doing their jobs. I would have to call her nurse and she would make sure they were filled the next day. So, many of the doctors there are good, but the reviews you read about the practice were about the same issues I experienced.

My experience was I had an appointment. Early afternoon before the appointment I was told that I had to be in a mandatory meeting at work. I called to re-schedule as soon as I found out. Got voice mail. Then about 3 hrs. later from a staff member and this is what she said, "Ms. *** we are cancelling your appointment for tomorrow, however in order to re-schedule you must first pay a $55 charge for NOT giving us 24 hour notice. Please let us know if you want to re-schedule." Click

I am in the customer service business and I have appointments cancelled all of the time, sometimes 24 hr. notice is not feasible. We never charge a re-schedule fee. They don't want new business I guess.

Default Has Anyone Been Prescribed Byetta?

I know those who have been prescribed Byetta and have had great results and lost around 30-40 lbs. in the process. Has anyone else taken this? What results did you get?

Dr. O'Connell is very young and a diabetic himself. He's at UNC and works out at the Durham clinic near Southpoint. He is phenomenal.

Default Triangle Endocrinologist - no refferal needed???

I see Dr. Thomas at Raleigh Endocrine, actually, I see his PA. Not very happy with her, no one LISTENS, everyone is going only by my TSH numbers. and NOT by how I feel...

I am hypothyroid and looking for a doctor that can prescribe Armour Thyroid or other form of Natural Thyroid Hormones..

Also, I would like to know if there are any endocrinologists that could see their patients without refference from primary MD?

Please, advice, if you can

Thanks.

Another CD member recommended a Naturopath in the area for this. I plan on seriously looking into this route for myself. My TSH numbers are 'normal' too, but I have soooooo many hypo symptoms its not even funny. She doesn't bill insurance though, but I expected that so that's why I'm waiting till tax refund time. I've waited this long so I can wait some more. Here's her contact info:

My family member has seen Dr. Stall on several occasions. He was a new diabetic and we needed to call Dr. Stall on the weekend to get additional instructions and he reponded very quickly. He also gives sample insulin pens and meds. We like him alot.
