On facebook, I am friends with Gena lee Nowlin, her page is called Thyroid Sexy. She just named a Dr Kenneth Adashek of Cedars-Sinai hospital in LA. as a thyroid cancer specialist. Check it out!

My surgery was done by dr Gene Liu at Cedars. I like him. My scar is healing up nicely but I may have to go back in for another surgery. I don't think it is because he missed something but most likely because a new lymph node has grown since (hopefully not cancer an I won't need to go under the knife again...)
Good luck.

If you're in the valley, dr Allen Cohen in West Hills. I found him to be very caring and patient in answering all my questions. He also remembered me when I was in recovery later in the year for a different procedure. I believe he went to UCLA and is currently an assistant clinical professor there as well. Good luck!

I also would check the top 100 list. I compared the list to the patient recommendations and started my search there.

Dr. Adashek was Brooke Burke's surgeon and she looks like a million bucks only a few weeks after surgery!

Dr. Namazie in Tarzana did mine and did a fantastic job. He also has the best bedside manner which I think is important. Good Luck!

Hi I am on the east coast and new to all this but my 1st biopsy was atypical and second suspicious. Consider another biopsy with the afirma test maybe she doesn't need surgery get a braf test too and why a total until you know for sure?
