Thyroid 101: Always Get a Second Expert Opinion Before Surgery or Radiation for “thyroid Cancer”. Dr.Death’s Quackery, and Rush to Surgery By Surgeons is to Be Avoided.
- This is a wake up call to all thyroid patients to never take the first advice from your primary, endocrinologist or surgeon to have thyroid surgery.
- Too many are told they have high risk the nodule is cancer when that is not found to be the case with expert outside opinion.
- There is no rush to have thyroid surgery as it is elective not an emergency.
- You have time to get a complete review of your case to see if you really are high risk or if you don’t need surgery at all.
- Recent patient came for a second opinion even though her doctors continued to call her and pushed her set up surgery dates. Her re-evaluation confirmed she had no cancer risk and the cytology was benign caused by her Hashimoto’s thyroiditis not a neoplasm. It took her time to travel to a major city to get the opinion. She was overjoyed she made the effort to get the opinion and did not need thyroid surgery just thyroid hormone and yearly follow exams.
- Dr.Death is in Jail for 45 years and poisoned 500 patients who did not have cancer.
- Local Surgeons put patients at risk for major complications by insisting on surgery and leaving the patient to seek their own outside opinion.
- Many are afraid outside opinions are not in their insurance but that is not true and they need to insist on it before the surgery.
- Call me before it is too late and get my opinion if the surgery is needed and if it is what type of surgery.
- Some small thyroid cancers do not need surgery at all and can be followed or ablated with ethanol or radiofrequency without surgery.
- Some thyroid cancers are not cancer by new criteria.

Farid Fata was a doctor with a deadly side — and many of his patients suffered. The Michigan oncologist was convicted in 2015 for scamming hundreds of cancer patients with painful and unnecessary treatments in an attempt to make money.
“In this case, we had Dr. Fata administering chemotherapy to people who didn’t need it, essentially putting poison into their bodies and telling them that they had cancer when they didn’t have cancer,” McQuade told the Detroit Free Press. “The idea that a doctor would lie to a patient just to make money is shocking. […] Dr. Fata was unique in that he saw patients not as people to heal, but as commodities to exploit.”
Victims have shared ailments including losing teeth and getting a liver transplant as a result of Fata’s actions. Patricia Loewen believes that Fata is to blame for her husband’s death.
