Second opinion Doctor on my first appointment found cysts and nodules on my thyroid gland because she used ultrasound in addition to physical palpation of the area. Dr Valiquette requested I get bloodwork done and adopted the wait and see method of treatment. I decided a four month wait was not good enough. I am still angry that this doctor decided a full exam complete with breast exam was necessary. I question his motives and feel violated, especially since the second opinion doctor did not do these things. She only examined my neck and did the ultrasound of it...which, in hindsight, makes perfect sense.
Just wanted to send a much overdue Thank You to Dr. Harvey from a patient back in the 90's. He put my health above health insurance (or rather lack of) and provided me with stellar patient care during a very turbulent time in my life. I still consider him the BEST OB/GYN I've ever had. Wonderful bedside manners and a kind heart.
