I was extremely thyroid hyperactive! My 1st visit he started pushing the RAI treatment, I said no thank you. 2nd appointment, after being on anti-thyroid meds for several weeks, he walks in and before the door even closes says "I have a new rule for you, if it tastes good don't eat it. You're getting fat fast". WOW! Went back one more time, and he told me I could only stay on the anti thyroid meds for a short time then I would have to have the radioactive iodine treatment. I never went back.......
I have been seeing Dr. Kobrosky for six years. His method of treatment has been effective for me, without being unnecessarily aggressive. From the outset, he has explained things in a way that I could understand. My options were always made clearly to me. Being a nervous person by nature, his manner puts me at ease. My nurse practitioner referred me to him, because she thought he would be the best match for me. She was right!
Dr. Kubrowsky is by far the best endocronologist I've been to. I've had hypothyroidism since my teens and no one has ever been more thorough, more efficient or more understanding than this doctor. I brought 10 years of tests with me to my first visit and he studied every one of them. He then resolved an ongoing problem that had not been treated. He takes the entire person into account and always encourages and helps. I recommend him highly to anyone needing his specialty. Joanne Irving
Kept door open when dictating personal history to patient before me...if I could hear her personal information, trust me the waiting room heard it too. Started to chat about my test results when I entered the room before I sat down with the door open. Trust me, I closed it quickly. Never took a biopsy of thyroid nodule although mine was larger than normal. Left him and got a great endocrinoligist at Lahey.
Knows his field & imparts confidence. Listens well, is open & very funny - always puts me at ease & makes me feel better. Dictates notes in your presence so you can ask for clarification or correct if necessary - which I've never had to do. A gem.
Very odd bed-side manner, he made some comments that were unappropriate. Other people I know also feel this way. Because of his approach, I'm rather skeptical with regard to his knowledge. I'm looking for a new endrocrinologist.
