We Listen and find the problem
We often hear from patients 'you get it' and that is because conventional medicine misses 2/3 of the thyroid cases due to inadequate testing. Dr. Leslie DeGasparis takes the time to listen to how you are truly feeling in order to make an accurate diagnosis and create a treatment plan that works.
Thyroid problems affect millions of Americans on a daily basis, especially women, and Hashimoto's hypothyroidism is the most common autoimmune condition in the United States. Dr. Leslie makes it her life's work to find and help people suffering with these issues.
With over 15 years of experience and research, she has found that thyroid problems are commonly under diagnosed or poorly managed by conventional approaches. Standard testing without the right analysis is often inadequate and patients are told their test results are "normal" when patients know that there is still something not right with their health. Also, the conventional approach of "fix it with Rx levothyroxine and forget it" really does not work for most people.
There are MANY factors to consider when working to get your thyroid and other aspects of health back in balance so we take a collaborative approach to ensuring you receive the best care and advice possible.

"When I met Dr. Leslie, I'd been struggling for 10 years with mental fog and extreme fatigue. After only one appointment, she was able to determine I was on the wrong type of thyroid medication. Thanks to her, I now feel like a new person, with energy to take on the day." – Desiree S.

Leslie is the first physician in my life who has approached my care in a truly holistic way and set me on a path to wellness.
I turned to her after years of struggling with health issues and after years of trying various MDs and NDs to no avail. She is such a passionate and compassionate physician who listens and leads masterfully. She is brilliant and confident in her analysis while also being astutely tuned into the emotional needs of her patients. She is a true gem!
