Q&A with

Dr. Ailis Marrero

Why I am passionate about treating patients with hypothyroidism.

As a chronic and autoimmune condition, it is often misunderstood and poorly treated. Symptoms can vary from person to person and so can treatment responses making it imperative to individualize and tailor care to the individual. A collaborative and comprehensive approach is often needed to bring about optimal outcomes for our patients.

My approach to treating hypothyroidism is...

Personalized and holistic. We are whole beings and as such I like to explore aspects that could be contributing to symptoms and responses, and incorporate medical management with lifestyle and mind-body practices.
