Ratings for Dr. Michael S. Irwig
All of the negative reviews about this doctor are accurate. He is a waste of space and time. I like the previous reviewers use of the word flippant. That is exactly what he did with me. He did not even listen to my concerns and was so sure he knew what the situation was. This guy gets paid to do this and act like this. Meanwhile none of your problems have been addressed. Terrible doctor. Save time and money.......do NOT see him.
One of the worst doctor visits of my life. Before even meeting with me, he sent in a depression checklist. And when he did finally meet with me and I told him that was not the issue, he was very flippant, condescending, and had already determined by reading my chart there was not a chance I had any type of endocrinological issue so the appointment was quickly over without even giving me a chance to articulate my concerns. Awful!
Working in a clinic setting, he is not always totally "prompt." But from my experience, it was because he was giving others ahead of me the same thoughtful and non-rushed exams and chats that make him such a caring and personable doc. He also is quite knowledgeable, conducting and publishing research (some of which made it into high profile journals during the past 2 yrs). I would highly recommend him.
I went to see Dr Irwig for transgender HRT. He was very insensitive and not at all knowledgeable about trans issues. He still relies on an outdated "gatekeeping" model that is transphobic and confrontational. In short a very bad doctor for any transgender people. Would not recommend.
Dr. Irwig has been my endocrinologist for over 3 years. He is a very thorough and knowledgeable doctor. He takes the time during our appointments to review and address any health issues that may affect my diabetes. I have never felt rushed through or ignored during any appointment. Overall I have been very happy with the care I have received from him and will continue to use him as my primary endocrinologist.
