Dr. Thomas Fahey, head of the Endocrine and Minimally Invasive Surgery program at Weill Cornell Medicine, explains why patients should turn to its team of experts, which specializes in minimally-invasive surgical techniques.
"I would recommend Dr Finnerty. He listened to what I said, answered all my questions, and never made me feel rushed."
"First time seeing Dr Zarnegar as a referral by my primary due to thyroid nodules found upon ultrasound. Dr Zarnegar eased my fears and performed an FNA with little to no pain.. would most definitely recommend"
"Dr. Fahey was great. He's clearly an expert in the area and was happy to answer all of my questions and explain his thoughts on next steps. He also helped coordinate with other offices on my care and provided suggestions for other doctors to see. The office staff was also very kind and helpful. I can't imagine a better experience."
