The following listing includes recommended doctors and practitioners for your thyroid care. Please note that being listed here in the Thyroid Top Doctors Directory doesn't necessarily mean a doctor is the right one for you. The doctor may be an empathetic and warm physician, but not open to working with drugs like Armour or T3 drugs. The doctor may be brilliant and innovative, but have a terrible bedside manner. Or the doctor may be quite costly and not on insurance programs. Always call the doctor's office ahead of time to find out more about the doctor's philosophy, approach, costs, and other important factors before going in for your first appointment. Please let me know if you have feedback -- positive or negative -- about doctors listed here, or would like to recommend your "top" doctor.

Thanks! -- Mary

Become part of the movement for better care! Help keep great doctors in business and encourage more doctors to properly treat thyroid patients by recommending the smart, caring, innovative practitioner who treats your thyroid condition. We might include him or her on the Top Docs Directory! And if you have criticism or feedback about a listed doctor, please let us know now!

Why is a Particular Doctor No Longer Listed?

Doctors who were previously listed here are removed for a number of reasons.
* The doctor has requested that his/her listings be removed because: he/she does not agree with this site’s philosophy or patient-orientation; the practice is too busy and can’t accept new patients; the doctor does not feel comfortable handling complicated thyroid problems; the doctor did not agree with what was said in the patient recommendations; or the doctor said “take me off the list” and offered no explanation.
* The doctor has moved, retired, or died.
* The doctor has lost his/her license, or given up his/her license, and is no longer practicing medicine.
* Patients have provided negative input about the doctor that is of sufficient concern that, in the opinion of the editor, the doctor should no longer be on the Top Thyroid Doctors List.
* Thyroid Top Doctors would face legal concerns if we published specific information about why patients had negative opinions about doctors, or if we shared a doctor’s occasional ranting ”take me off” email, or if we publicized doctors with licensing problems. So please, if you see that a doctor has been taken off the list and want to know why, talk to the doctor directly. If you write to us to ask why a doctor was taken off the list, we’re sorry, but we won’t be able to answer you or share that information.

A reader tells us, "I was suffering from severe depression, would fall asleep at work, had no interest in life or sex, and was rapidly gaining weight in spite of a poor diet. Many physicians whom I consulted, in New Delhi and in London ( I am English, and London is my home town ) told me it was all in the mind, that I was depressed because I had married an Indian, that it was all due to a different life style or a different diet or a different climate or a combination of these and that I was putting on weight because I was overeating because of depression. They gave me pills for depression and asked me to attend Over Eaters Anonymous meetings. I went to Dr. Sahgal without much hope. A close friend nagged me constantly to consult him. He believed my story and ordered a fistful of hormone tests. Three days later the results came, and I had my answer. I was suffering from Hypothyroidism caused by Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Dr. Sahgal prescribed a combination of T3 and T4 medication. Thirty year later I am still normal weight, travel all over the world, take a keen interest in my grand children and enjoy playing with them and lead a very active social life. This is so different to the life I was leading earlier. I shudder to think what would have become of me if I had not gone to Dr. Sahgal because of my friend’s nagging (God bless her!)."
