Thrilled with the Outcome

By eschill142 eschill142

Thyroid Cancer Manifested as Overall Discomfort

By iamjustingray iamjustingray

Before I found out about my thyroid cancer I thought I was going through depression – I felt very moody and lethargic, finding myself napping at 9:30am.

My exceptional experience with Dr. Yeh

By uni uni

I was referred by Dr. Ahamati and I cross-referenced the referral with a girlfriend who is a doctor who said Dr. Yeh is so good that her mother had flown in from Europe to get her thyroid removed by him.
