I was first diagnosed back in October 2015 with graves disease. At first I didn’t want to jump into an extreme decision. I took my time to decide between definitive treatments which were eradicative iodine or a complete thyroidectomy. I Consulted with Dr. Livhitz and it took many months to decide to have the surgery, but after talking with Dr. Livhitz I felt more at ease and she made the surgery seem a lot better then I thought. I had never had surgery before and she answered all my questions and she was very attentive. After the surgery, so far dr. Livhitz has been very attentive and answered all my questions and I am very hopeful!
