I'm a 41 year old mother of 3 boys and am generally pretty active. I had felt changes in my body and so I went to my general doctor who dismissed these feelings, but because I knew something wasn't right I went to an endocrinologist who found a nodule in my thyroid. After waiting 6 months the nodule had grown by 20 percent and was under suspicion of cancer. At this point, I was given a biopsy and had it confirmed that it was cancer. At this point, I was recommended by the endocrinologist to go to see Dr. Yeh who I was informed was one of the best in the country in terms of endocrinology. When I went to go visit him at UCLA, the entire experience was amazing in the fact that all the staff was friendly and inviting and genuinely cared, especially Dr.Yeh. The confidence and positive attitude from Dr.Yeh in the treatment of my case made my entire experience amazing and helped me get through this challenging ordeal.
