03/09/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Lyster is smart--have seen her once and she helped very much on the visit. I know so much more about hypo challenges and will be curious to see what her strategy will be.

13/08/12 5 5 5 5 Have been going to Holtorf Medical for a little over a year now and feeling much better! I do not want to go back to the way I was feeling before. No pain with walking or moving now and I have lost 17 to 18 pounds. Don't have as many infections, still some but not as many.  Respond

19/04/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Holtorf, isn't my doctor but I am seeing someone in his practice. I've seen him twice so far and I am feeling 1000% better. He didn't bat an eye about doing all the right tests and ignoring TSH. I'm on slow release T3 and some supplements. I now.......happily get through my day with energy left in the evening. I unpacked the last box form my move over a year ago last week....am down to wearing a normal amount of clothing, not three layers at.least because I am cold all the time. My husband has noticed that I am even warmer to the touch on the outside. I felt like an ice cube before. ...am losing a normal amount of weight on a regular LC diet. ...don't look like a Persian cat walked all over me before work because of the hair loss. I feel like I got my life back. Anyone reading this, please don't give up. Don't stop looking and don't let them make you feel like you're crazy.  Respond

28/03/12 4 5 5 5 I contacted the Holtorf Medical Group recently to discuss options for my asthma. They offered me a free 15 minute consultation before actually enrolling with them. I must say, they are very kind and accommodating.The lady on the phone was very caring and she even provided me with some. to avoid and prevent my asthma. They have excellent customer service and is very quick to return calls. The only cons is that they are a cash only center, so you will need to pay cash or have them write a receipt and you can then forward that to your insurance. The thing that most amazes me was that they was still helping me and giving me tips *even after I told them I was looking for a medical center that accepts insurance up front.It is difficult to locate a place that is this caring. I recommend the Holtorf Medical Group to anyone. Give them a call for your free 15 min consultation. What do you got to lose?  Respond

21/02/11 1 1 3 3 Dr. Lyster was ok, but she rushed you out of the office. The staff is the reason no one should ever make an appointment! They do not return calls, you can never get through, and they even mixed up my pap results with another patient! You wait forever to get in and they once mis-placed my appointment so I had to wait over 2 hours.

01/11/10 5 3 1 4 Waited over an hour to see Dr. Lyster the first time. Three weeks after the second appt. and two phone calls, plus an email, I'm still waiting for a return call. In the meantime, I keep receiving emails to pay and attend classes she offers online. I wish she would take care of me as her patient. As you can tell, I'm very disappointed and need to find a new Dr.
