    Hello – You can find some good resources for finding a doc in the “Looking for a Doctor?” thread in the announcements section of the forum.

    You might select a few offices near you and call to see if you can get info on the doctor’s preferred treatment options.

    With the guidance released last year from the American Thyroid Association and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, there seems to be more of an emphasis on taking patient values and preferences into account when selecting a treatment option. (Unless, of course, there are medical considerations that rule out one or more options). You can read the guidance in the “Treatment Options” section at the beginning of this thread.

    Take care!
