The Doc is great, she has worked with me on my illness and has saved and giving me back my life. Before coming to this doctor I had seen numerous docs, and she came to a conclusion, found the tumor, had it removed and now working on establishing my health. I cannot thank her enough for her work, her expertise and outlining a plan for my life do to the illness.

Great experience with Dr. Sue Challinor. I recommend her highly to many of my friends who ask about endocrinologists. She is very thorough with my health record and I feel comfortable asking her health related questions. She is easy to speak to and has a great manner with patients.

Current medication levels in flux, and adjustments pending. As for the Right Level for Me, we'll see how adjustments go and then move forward from them. I do not settle for the works for everyone else approach as I am in far better health than the average, with far healthier genes. Especially with questionable research.
