Ratings for Dr. Ashok Kadambi
Dr. Kadambi and Fort Wayne Endocrinology has been the cornerstone to successfully treating my Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency and Auto-Immune Thyroid disease. Following almost three years of improper treatment, my body was exhausted and I was mentally exhausted. It was a refreshing change to walk into my first appointment with Dr. Kadambi and to have him LISTEN to my symptoms. Lab tests revealed that my Graves' Disease had morphed into Hashimoto's and almost all of my hormone levels were at improper levels. Careful monitoring and a switch to compounded Thyroid medication & adding other hormonal treatment helped, but there was still an underlying issue causing me loss of quality of life. After undergoing two Insulin Resistance tests, Dr. Kadambi was able to determine that I suffer from Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency, which is compounding my Thyroid issues. I started HGH treatment less than a year ago, and the results have been profound. It's a relief to have a Doctor & staff that actually treat the patient, not the "numbers." Without Dr. Kadambi and Fort Wayne Endocrinology, I truly believe my quality of life would've continued to spiral downward. If you have any doubts about your Endocrine disease treatment or symptoms that just won't improve, call Dr. Kadambi's office today!
Did not have a chance to meet the doctor. Waited for nearly an hour and had to leave due to the time issue. They all insisted to have the blood work done on the premises that is a bit weird. As if other certified labs are not good enough to have your tests right. They charge you 50$ for a missed appointment. But what about waiting for a doctor for an hour? I showed up but find it disrespectful to the patients to keep them wait for so long.
I the beginning I felt that Dr. K was very good. He actually took the time to figure out what was wrong with me... he just didn't explain it very well. After I had my diagnosis, he handed me off the nurse practitioner. She does listen to me, but doesn't take my symptoms into account. I hate that you have all labs drawn there and you have to wait 1-2 weeks for results. Also, while I understand the appeal for compounded bio-identical hormones, I don't necessarily like getting my meds from a pharmacy in New York. I live 10 minutes from a compounding pharmacy and that would be cheaper and more convenient for me, not to mention the cost associated with the compounded meds. Also, one medication that he prescribed for me has to come from a specialty pharmacy. The pharmacy that is contracted with my insurance will not fill for him. So, I have not been able to take that med for over 2 months. Already scheduled an apt for a second opinion...
