      For some reason, she thinks I am missing doses of my thyroid medicine. I have told her I don't ever miss a dose of my medication because I have been on it for so long and it is a habit to take it first thing when I wake up, but she seems to think that is not the case and told me to use a pill planner, so I just play along and tell her I am using one. I feel like she should explore other reasons she thinks this instead of just blaming it on me missing doses, because there must be something else going on since I am not missing any doses.

      This ARPN-CST was so inconsiderate of my thoughts and feelings. She was so invalidating and did not show any concern or tried to provided rapport/comfort. She made me feel uncomfortable, unsupported, stupid, and hopeless. After I expressed I have had it rough in regards dealing with this situation, she noted, I don't care if you have Hashis which that's fine but I do it's my health! She also overspoke and told me I have fatty liver, my blood pressure was high for the first time, I told her I never had any problems with that and proceeded to tell me I had hypertension. I did not feel listened. I left crying and hopeless, she was a detriment to my mental health I had risk her I had anxiety especially with medical stuff and she was so inconsiderate, I told her about all the changes I had been making, and my stress around reading a lot of different looking about my condition and she noted I don't care about all that nutrition stuff, I don't support it. I will not be returning to her.

      Provider gave excellent explanations for treatment decisions, followed up with me about lab results within 24 hours, and outlined treatment plan and expectations for switching to a new medication. Very thorough but also compassionate to patient experiences. I wish there had been additional time to discuss in more detail potential risks and benefits of the new medication, but provider spent ample time with me during the appointment, did not rush any part of the appointment and answered any questions I had.

      This provider did not make me feel better about my diagnosis and gave no further tools to effectively handle what is going on with my own health I could not get a word in. Highly disappointed

      Regina Marcinek was very informative and spent a lot of time with me discussing my hypothyroidism and the importance of taking my medication accurately.

      Regina is one of the best doctors I have ever had. She actually explains the situation and why she is doing what she is doing. She answers any and all questions I have. She is very kind and understanding. That woman deserves an award.

      I recommend Regina Marcinek to everyone I know with a thyroid problem. I am in congestive heart failure because I didn't receive the proper care over the last 25 years! Best provider around.

      Dr. Marcinek seems like a pretty good doctor, but she did bring up a couple of things from our last visit (which was my first visit to her) which I explained that I did not ever do. In that first visit, she did not seem to believe me when I denied doing these things and I felt very judged by someone who does not know me. I felt that again when she brought it up at this 2nd visit, but I did not comment on it this time as I don't think it would do any good.

      Regina was awesome! She took her time and explained everything to me thoroughly and in a way that was easy to understand. It did not feel like a rushed appointment. There was a hiccup with the office not having or receiving all my lab work from my pcp. But we were able to get through that.

      The provider was more concerned with telling me I was overweight and listed all the things that would happen to me because I'm overweight (told me I probably had sleep apnea and my brain cells were dying). I need someone who will be concerned with WHY I'm overweight and help me figure out what is going on in my body to cause the weight gain and pain. This is my second visit and she has criticized my weight both visits. I did not have this weight problem a couple years ago, but she didn't listen to me when I try to say I don't know what caused my weight gain. She just suggested lowering my dose of thyroid meds, but isn't concerned with my numbers going up from the past two months because I'm still in the normal range. If in six months from now my numbers are high and above normal I'm going to have a problem to address with the care I've received for the past three months from this provider.
