well I read the reviews and was not sure and a bit uneasy going. I am a heavy guy and she was absolutely fantastic great Dr was pleasant great discussion and gave me many suggestions and explained it very well to me and my spouse. I would strongly recommend this Dr and after the appointment felt positive and well informed. Pleasure to see and highly recommended thank You Dr Mshiu
Rude, belittling, egotistical. Prepare yourself for feeling worse when you leave then you did when came for her "professional" opinion. If you are going to see her in regards to your physical being (weight) save yourself the misery. I went to see her after a surgical procedure and was concerned about my drastic weight gain, basically was told it's spoon to mouth. Didn't look into anything else and wasn't willing to.
I saw Dr Mshiu for the first time after being treated for thyroid cancer with radiation and a thyroidectomy. She was extremely rude and dismissive. I told her that I was wondering about taking Cytomel, a medication to increase T3 levels in addition to my synthroid as many cancer patients online have had success with this. She told me "no". I was startled and I asked "why?" She told me "because I am the doctor and I make the decisions and if you are planning tomself treat and ask questions this will not work. I work by telling you my treatment decisions based on my opinion. I answered and said "ok. But why do you think not the cytomel?". She told me she would not answer because she didn't have to as she had made her decision. She told me I was only booked for 15 minutes and she could not be expected to explain thyroid function and how meds work in that time and that she would not see me if I ask questions. Then she said "goodbye". I was flummoxed! It was beyond rude. Disgusting.
I really like this doctor. I find that she is knowledgeable and does whatever necessary to help. I also find her good to talk to, she has a sense of humo, tells you the way it is and puts you at ease. Glad she has been appointed to my care for the last 6 years and will continue to assist me. Thank you Dr. Mshiu!
