Ratings for Dr. Marlys R. Drange
I have been going to Dr Drange for the past 4 yrs, being super sensitive to drugs , she has worked with me and any suggestions she has been open to. She is kind considerate and very passionate to your well being. No problems getting refills on scrips and she will work with a compound when necessary. I would highly recommend Dr Drange to anyone that has a thyroid problem.
I have Hashimoto's and after my previous Endo closed his practice, I went to 2 other doctors who could not seem to get my TSH below 7. After one visit to Dr. Drange and a medication change to Nature-thyroid, my tests came into the low normal range and I felt great improvement. She is a wonderful doctor - kind, open minded, and attentive - everything I could possibly ask for. I recommend her highly, especially to those who need a doctor to think a bit outside the box and taylor treatment to their own individual needs. I'm so thankful to have found Dr. Drange (and her staff is equally wonderful).
I went to see Dr. Drange for my thyroid/Hashimoto's issues. She was patient, kind and took plenty of time with me. She does most if not all bloodwork in-house and has an extremely professional, organized and helpful staff. As others have said, she calls personally to follow up. I feel much better based on a simple medication switch.
Dr. Drange spent my entire first visit, of 30 minutes, explaining everything in understandable detail. She believes in controlling diabetes by diet (low carb) and minimal medication. She returns phone calls herself as well as notifying me personally of lab results. I never have to wait. I am confident that I have made a superb choice in endocrinologists. She is absolutely the best doctor I have seen and will continue to see.
Dr Drange caught a mistake in my MRI ordered by another physician for my pituitary. Also, when she was confronted with a new medical protocol prescribed by my other doctor, she took all the information, along with his card and said she'd work with him. She called me at home herself to give me the results of my blood tests. She's everything positive I've read about her, with no exagerations. The above criticism of her may be due to the patient's approach. I've seen too many doctors, from HMO slobs to elite specialists. Dr Drange is ABSOLUTELY TOP NOTCH.
I have seen Dr. Drange approximately 8 times over the last 5 years. She came highly recommended from a surgeon at Cedars-Sinai. Not only is she an M.D., she also has a PhD in endocrinology. Although she left Cedars and moved to Pasadena, she is well worth the drive. She is very knowledgable and a very good listener. I have diabetes and am hypothyroid. She is always thorough in her explanations of tests and medications. She always returns phone calls promptly. Her staff is very professional and low key. At the most, I have waited 20-30 minutes to be seen, but usually within 15 minutes. Her office has a nice quiet vibe to it. You don't feel rushed. There are usually only 2 or 3 patients in the waiting room. Sometimes I have been the only one. I highly recommend her.
Very nice and understanding. Spends a lot of time with you and answers all your questions. However, not very up to date with certain medical knowledge. Upon asking her about a new fda approved device for my problem, she did not know anything about it. After tons of labs and over a year of seeing her, still no treatment for my illness.
I have been to several doctors for my diabetes who all just said lose weight and gave me more and more medications. Dr. Drange said I was over medicated and started to cut back the meds. She moved to Pasadena from Beverly Hills and most of her patients followed her. I may move further away but I will continue to see her. THE BEST!
