I am hypothyroid and I am looking for a new endocrinologist. Does anyone have any recommendations? I would really like a doctor at Northwestern, or in the vicinity, but I am willing to travel to Rush as well. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
A.

I've been seeing Dr. Robert Sobel ###-###-#### for about 11 years now for hypo-thyroid. He is located on 30 N. Michigan. He takes the time to explain what's going on. For complete disclosure: a co-worker years ago also used him and wasn't as big of a fan as I am. I have no complaints and like him just fine. He calls me personally after the results of my tests come back. He was very involved monitoring my levels when I was pregnant and communicated with my OB/GYN.

I'm not sure if he's taking new patients.

Hi A.,

I work for Northwestern Memorial Hospital and one of the best endocrinologists in the area is Dr. Walter Stoller. He is a genius!! I have referred several people to him and they love him. He is a little quirky (I think it's because he really is brilliant) but he is very nice, patient and knowledgeable. He is an office affiliated with NMH, on the NMH campus. The number is ###-###-####. I hope this helps.

Hi A.,
I have been seeing Dr. Pauline Shipley out of ENH(I see her in Evanston) for over 5 years. I had hyper and hypo thyroid shortly after delivering my son. I just referred my mom there as well post thyroid cancer follow up care.

Dr. Shipley is very thoughtful and informative. I would highly recommend her even if it requires a bit more travel every few months or so.

You can get her office # thru Evanston Hospital at ###-###-####.

Hope you find just the right doctor for you.
