Thyroid No Surgery: Why You Need a Second Opinion Before You have Thyroid Surgery: You may not need it! Stephanie in New York came to see me before she was on the list for thyroid surgery.

DR.Guttler’s Comments:

  1. This patient’s story is universal. As soon as the primary send the patient to get an ultrasound and biopsy and the results are suspicious the knee jerk reaction is to send them to their local surgeon bypassing the local endocrinologist. The surgeon recommends surgery of course.
  2. The patient must be their own advocate and request outside second opinion as seen with this patient.
  3. My opinion after a complete re-evaluation and adding DNA mutation studies was the nodule was not suspicious and was benign.
  4. The second opinion saved her from thyroid surgery.
  5. The hospital stay, surgery, post op recovery, possible complications, and loss of work were not going to happen Stephanie.
  6. Call me at 310-393-8860 or email to thyroid.manager@protonmail.com for my opinion before you go to surgery.
  7. Thyroid surgery is elective and there is no rush to have the surgery.
  8. The is time to search for second opinions.

“I went to see Dr. Guttler after I was misdiagnosed going to a “top endocrine surgeon.” The endocrine surgeon’s biopsy technique was faulty and gave a false reading. Dr. Guttler did the thyroid tests CORRECTLY in his office.. the ultrasound, biopsy, and cancer markers & blood test. When the endocrine surgeon wanted to do surgery and do a lobectomy, Dr. Guttler found that it was completely unnecessary! He also found many other things that the endocrine surgeon did not! Not only did this doctor save my life, but he also has an impeccable bedside manner! Please go see him before you have thyroid surgery. It may just save your life too…

Also, his nurse Alicia is fantastic! She is so quick and helpful with everything!! Thank you Dr. Guttler and Alicia!!”
