Ratings for Dr. Ashok N. Vaswani
Dr. Vaswani has treated me for 7 years for thyroid cancer. He is extremely knowledgeable and very personable. I have never waited for more than 10 minutes beyond my scheduled appointment time to see him. He is an internationally recognized expert in endocrinology. While he "knows his stuff," it sometimes requires that you to ask questions to get a deeper understanding of your particular condition.
After waiting 3 months I was very disappointed. I didn't bring any records or blood work and complained that my meds were making me fell bad. He told me to cut my pills in half with out ordering blood work to see where my levels are. I cried all the way home because I was so upset I had wasted time seeing this Doctor. I'll never go back.
Dr. Vaswani has been my physician for about 8 years now. He is by far the most knowledgeable and open-minded mainstream endocrinologist I have seen. In addition to thyroid issues, I have a rare medical condition that few doctors have an understanding of, but he was completely familiar with it. He is not put-off by my asking questions or sharing research that I have found, and if I ask for certain tests to be performed, he readily requests them for me. He treats my thyroid condition by how I feel, not just by my "numbers," which is rare these days. The only issue I have is that recently he has been splitting his time between here and his practice in India, so he is not as available as he had been previously. Dr. Vaswani runs his practice in an "old-fashioned" manner. He has receptionists, but no nurse--he greets his patients in the waiting room himself, and takes all vitals. Refreshing!
