Endocrine Associates of Central Florida Complaint - Insulting experience

Review by SeansSecret on 2006-12-12
WINTER PARK, FLORIDA -- I was referred to an Endocrinologist by my primary physician for symptoms which she could not explain. When Dr. Mandry came into the room, I had given him a list of my symptoms, which he rapidly read through, and then began criticizing me. He began claiming that I needed to see a psychologist for a stress-related issue and that I was making it all up in my head. I was pleading for help and he was telling me to get my head checked. IT WAS THE SINGLE MOST OFFENSIVE AND INSULTING EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE. I URGE EVERYONE TO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR!

If you don't mind sharing, what were the symptoms?
Posted by SeansSecret on 2006-12-12:
My symptoms were nothing related to stress-related disorder (this is my list abridged):
-Severe acid reflux during childhood
-Curvature of the Spine & decreased height (I'm in my early 20's)
-Cessation of Puberty since teens
-Allergy/Chemical Sensitivities including nose bleeds
-Skin/Hair/Nail abnormailities
-Poor reaction to adrenaline rushes (shakey, tired, weak)
-Family history of endo disorders

Dr. Mandry is quite the arrogant prick. I hope that my posting helps other to avoid this man and his insulting and imposing diagnoses.

Based on those symptoms, your primary physician should have been able to draw some blood to test your thyroid levels, among other things. All without sending you to a specialist. Did he/she run some blood tests?

Also, some physicians I have come across definitely have the most horrid bedside manner.
