Optimizing thyroid health is our absolute number one priority.Get Scheduled Today
Thyroid balance is crucial for every organ in our body to function properly including brain, heart, bone, and muscles. We also need thyroid hormone to properly utilize energy and keep our bodies at the right temperature. If thyroid hormone is either too high or too low we experience a wide range of symptoms that affect almost every body system including energy and weight changes, sleep and mood disturbances, skin and hair problems, menstrual cycle shifts, gastrointestinal issues and muscle weakness.
A picture is worth a thousand words when it comes to understanding your thyroid. Dr. Glueck performs her own thyroid ultrasounds and biopsies regularly in the office. She sends the cells to a specialized laboratory for Afirma Thyroid FNA analysis. This specialized test allows genes to be tested that can further help clarify whether a nodule is benign or malignant and can often avoid the need to repeat a biopsy or unnecessary surgery.
Before, during, and after pregnancy thyroid balance is absolutely crucial.
Normal ovary function depends on thyroid hormone. Thyroid problems can lead to both subfertility and pregnancy complications. Most women with underlying thyroid problems need additional hormone supplementation during pregnancy, particularly during the first trimester. Increased frequency of testing and careful attention to adjust thyroid function is very important to maintain both mother and baby's health.

I cannot say enough about Dr Glueck- She was extremely open and caring, thorough and knowledgeable (obviously very well-read and up on the latest) and spent a great deal of time with me. The thing though that struck me most about her was her passion for what she does- it shows. A breath of fresh air- Highly recommend-
Dr. Glueck is the most competent specialist I’ve ever worked with. During each appointment, she answered all my questions and carefully explained each step of the fertility process. She took her time and meticulously measured levels in the blood to be sure the process was progressing safely. Dr. Glueck also makes herself available for questions & updates outside office hours. I drove two hours for each appointment, and it was well worth it! My husband and I have one child and another on the way!
