Hi,
I am searching for a good primary doctor in Raleigh or Cary. I've seen two in Raleigh and neither have listened to my concerns. I am specifically looking for a doctor that is willing to at least recognize my depression/anxiety issues (previously diagnosed by psychiatrist), rather than not listening at all or telling me to do some yoga. I have told them my depression symptoms are not as bad when I run on the mid to high side of normal for thyroid levels as I am hypothyroid, but both have told me they are fine and won't alter the dose despite them being on the low end of normal. My two previous doctors when I lived in other areas have titrated my dose to have me run on the high side of normal, so I know at least some doctors will work with me
Thanks!

I see Dr. Michael Capps, and like him a lot. He listens well, where my last PCP did not listen at all.

I'm wondering why you aren't seeing an endocrinologist (or a PA-C at an Endocrine office). Most primary doctors are just going to go strictly by lab ranges and if you fall within that range they are not going to adjust even if you have symptoms. Also they typically only want to prescribe synthetic T4 when maybe your body might do better on NDT or a mix of synthetic T4/T3.

I have been seeing Ravin Mehta (he is actually a PA-C) at Creedmoor Endocrinology. He has been great at listening to my concerns. It's hard to make appointments though so that part bothers me. Most likely you will have to leave a message and then wait for someone to call you back. Dr Julian Warren Ulanch (at the same office) was also wonderful when I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and she was the one who managed my care prior, during and after thyroidectomy and RAI.
