This was my first scheduled visit with the endocrinologist since diagnosis of autoimmune issues in 2015. I've only been scheduled with the nurse practitioner since then. I have serious concerns about a 30 pound weight gain since being prescribed the medication necessary for treatment. I attempted to discuss this concern but was given no viable option s for weightless strategies other than to consider the bariatric clinic. Dr. Walczak even managed to point out that she was able to lose 30 pounds. The paperwork I received at checkout indicated that my BMI indicated obesity and that I should discuss the issue with the physician. Considering I had just spent 10 minutes attempting to do that I found the comments ludicrous. Dr. Walczak was less than helpful and seemed unable to provide useful information. She used the term "quick fix" to describe my concerns which I felt was incredibly inappropriate as I was looking for sustainable and viable options for weight loss while taking the medication. She was dismissive.

May 21, 2018

During the visit, I was unaware that the individual was my doctor, as there was no introduction and kept their back to me.
