Tunbridge is willing to trial thyroid medication if symptoms warrant it. He also tests for and prescribes progesterone, estrogen and testosterone hormone replacements, and has an excellent diet for hypoglycemia. Suite 22, Tynte St. Another reader praises Dr.
Peter Tunbridge of Adelaide. He is a caring, listening doctor who is not tied to diagnosing thyroid conditions via TSH results.
I originally saw him after being referred by the Sandra Cabot Foundation in Sydney. I was desperate for answers. I had a high TSH after 11 years on synthetic T4 replacement.
Bad considering I have had surgery 10 times for thyroid cancer and should have had a totally suppressed TSH reading. My regular doctor's answer was more T4. Since I had developed thyroid resistance it was definitely not the answer. Tunbridge prescribed T3 and for a time I seemed to get better but when I hit rock bottom again he was willing to listen to my suggestion that we try Armour.
I now have my sanity back. My husband has noticed my positive mood changes. I have more energy and no longer feel like "the living dead". My receptor sites may have been permanently damaged but I feel more positive now than I have felt in years. This man saved my life. I can never thank him enough. He specifically asked to be removed from this list, saying that he does not want to be associated with a patient-oriented list of top thyroid doctors, and does not want patients who would find him via this list.
Fixler has been fantastic, he looks at the results but how I feel is the most important thing, he is easy to talk to, very human, and my life saver. He has told me we will try everything until I feel like my old self. Dr Hockings for appts. I was then able to see a hematologist who allayed some of my concerns, but Dr Hockings had explained a lot of it to me Strakosch is approachable and understanding. He also prefers to treat patients according to their symptoms and not according to their lab values.
He is also quite prepared to prescribe natural thyroid T3 on patients request. He is very approachable and easy to talk to. She practices complementary medicine. He has treated myself for Hashimoto's and my aunt for Graves' disease, we both cannot speak highly enough of him. He has gotten me onto the Natural Extract after years of being on the synthetic drug and supplemented me with Natural T3, he gave me the Reverse T3 blood test and that came back very, very bad and explained alot of my continuing poor health - he has helped rectify those effects by the above mentioned doses.
He has tested me for so many other related things through blood tests and other hormone tests, seeing the big picture in all of these findings. He has a most wonderful manner about him, very supportive in every way, he looks at what causes the autoimmune disease and works on trying to rectify this - he is very open and actively encouraging to alternative health support as well.
This man has changed my life around, my aunt does not know where she would be without his care. For a number of years, I was prescribed Oroxine on and off which did not make any difference at all. About 18mths or so ago I was referred to Dr Alan Hadley by a herbalist that I was seeing for fertility issues. I am so glad that she referred me to Dr Alan Hadley.
I was fortunate that I started taking this early in my pregnancy, and post pregnancy my baby is 5 mths old , I continue to take 2x60mcg capsules daily same dose as when I was pregnant. Dr Alan Hadley has also prescribed me with "RejuvenX", a natural supplement that I drink stirred into water that has cured digestive issues I have also had for at least 5 years.
Dr Alan Hadley ensures that he does all the prerequisite tests before prescribing any treatment, and continues relevant testing at suitable intervals. Dr Alan Hadley prescribes both "mainstream" and "complementary" tests and can interpret both types of results.
In my opinion he works holistically and is "worth his weight in gold". I have referred two friends to Dr Hadley, who both rave about the results they have been able to achieve from seeing him. He is very thorough and has made a big difference to my health and those people I have recommended to see him. I feel more energetic, much healthier since my goiter was removed. Leisa takes in the big picture. They are not "flat earth practitioners".
These doctors are very savvy in cutting edge medicine and are sprinkled all around Australia now. His expertise is fantastic. His surgery is out of the way but most of his clients come from all areas because they hear what a great doctor he is.
Still highly recommend him. Specializes in natural hormone therapy via compounding pharmacist Armour thyroid and T3 also DHEA, testosterone progesterone.
Also has female doctor Jocelyn Cullingford working in same practice dealing with womens issues, depression fatigue PMS menopause both very thorough doctors and most importantly willing to listen and let you have some in put on your health. I had my thyroid tested many times by other doctors because of symptoms I displayed but the tests came back negative and nothing was ever done.
This is the first that has to me, he said "Jenni, I treat patient symptom not blood test results. Ismail who immediately recognized my condition and has been able to get me back on track. Ismail for a couple of years now. I started going after having been to 6 other GPs and two endocrinologists He is willing to listen and treats one with respect and interest.
He adjusts treatment to fit each patient and their current state. Most importantly, he does not simply go on blood test results! He is willing to try something different to see if it will help, but does not force any specific treatment on anyone. Ismail stays abreast with the latest developments in the field. He has helped me incredibly and I would highly recommend him - a really sensitive, lovely doctor. He visits here every two months.
Has agreed to let me try T3 with T4 -- although was sceptical at first, he followed up some more research and tried some more of his own patients on it since then and says it works for some patients. He is quite 'human' to talk to and listens to my 'list of questions. He writes a letter back to my GP each visit to tell him my progress and suggests future treatment-- and my GP can contact him to discuss anything. I asked him if he knew of any support groups when I first visited and he didn't so I recently gave him a print out of "Mary's home page" and the address of the Australian Thyroid Foundation and he asked if he could keep it.
Because of my continuing symptoms, I am now using T3, at my request. Dr Peter Hodgkinson, general practice. Family Medical Centre Plaza parade Maroochydore. He also seems confident in the use of T3 and has a very nice manner. He was more than happy to trial me on T3 and let me feel as if I had some control over my own medical decisions. I wish there were more Doctors like him. He treats his patients with dignity and respect.
Powell looks beyond blood test results and takes symptoms into consideration. He tests for vitamin and mineral deficiencies and endeavors to treat the underlying cause of illness. Powell is very caring, sympathetic, and informed. Moreover, I initially contacted this medical centre following the dvice listed on this website. Hodgkinson of this same practice, as recommended here, is not taking on new patients. Powell is a new doctor at the centre who uses the same methods. Kerry Callaghan -- no longer listed St.
Leonards, New South Wales Dr. Leonards, New South Wales, Australia, 02 Very easy to talk to and explains things so you can understand. Chatswood NSW Australia, 02 , 02 , ludkaberkowski yahoo. This doctor can be very expensive, and reportedly rarely uses blood tests in her diagnoses. My endocrinologist did not want to confirm my self-diagnosis, despite having all the symptoms of both conditions.
That's how I developed interest in these topics. In the last few years I read everything there is to know about diagnosis and treatment of Hashimoto, adrenal fatigue, fibromyalgia, CFS. I feel great myself and so do my patients. Fortunately, we have 4 compounding chemists in Sydney, who have all the needed supplements. I am still searching for an endocrinologist, who is open to treatments with thyroid extract, T3 an believes in the existence of adrenal fatigue.
Since seeing her, my health has improved greatly. I have sent other patients to her and they have found similar turnarounds, especially regarding the treatment of Adrenal Fatigue and Hypothyroidism. As she has had the disease herself, she knows exactly what to look for and orders far more tests than any other doctor I have been to over the years. She always keeps her knowledge up to date and goes to conferences. As she is so good she is very busy - leave plenty of messages because you will get an appointment.
