Endocrinology Dr. Kevin Ganong. Has anybody seen him? What did you think? How did it turn out? Did he do what was best for you?

Thanks. I'm very nervous about going & my friends and family had never heard of him *but I haven't lived in the Jonesboro area long* I hadn't really even heard of an Endocrinologist but I have been reading on it. Thanks again

well, he's smart and up on the latest evidence. He's not exactly the friendliest thing that ever walked, but sometimes the best Dr's aren't

Thanks for the warning lol. So he's not one of those doctors that will run every test ever made and run ya in debt?

what is the reason for seeing him?? I think he does really well managing Diabetic patients. If you go see him for some vague symptoms, I'm sure he will have to run tests to figure out what is going on. I don't see him as someone who would needlessly do tests to rack up a bill though.

Great doctor, and a nice guy. He is very intelligent, and has a very dry wit. Some may mistake that as being "not exactly the friendliest thing..." but I assure you that he is far from UNfriendly. He'll talk to you as long as you like, too... never in a hurry to cut & run.

Mine was parathyroid. He found the problem, then I chose a surgeon and all went well.

My little sister have type 1 dia. and he is awesome with her. She found out when she was 5 and now 10. She is now on an insulin pump. He may be a little extra money but hey he's worth it.

I've used him but he didn't do what he was suppose to, so it caused me alot of problems that I am still living with. Had to go to Memphis to get things on the right track. They have many good endo's over there and they actually care about their patients. Gangong cares about the buck. Just not right when they do people that way. He could have saved me alot of pain and suffering. His office staff is snobby too. I always tried to be friendly with them. I WILL NEVER GO BACK. I'D RATHER DRIVE TO MEMPHIS WHERE THEY ACT LIKE THEY CARE,,,,,

Wow... 13 posts and yours is the only one expressing sour grapes. Why do you suppose that you're the ONLY person with anything negative to say?

I was diagnosed with type II diabetes. Went to Ganong for 18 months, put up with his snobby, smart a*s attitude and still felt terrible, gained 30lbs and decided to try a different doctor. Went to Little Rock, found a wonderful doctor that treated me like a person! First dr. visit he found I had thyroid problems as well and put me on thyroid meds, as well as changed my diabetes medicine. Was feeling like a new person in two weeks. How Ganong missed the thyroid problem is a mystery to me as they did blood work every three months! Will not go back to Ganong, wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy!!!! Since then I have found out from several people that they had the same experience with Ganong, just no other doctors in that field in this area. My overall health improvement was and is worth the trip to Little Rock for my doctor visits!!!

Now Jennifer isn't the only person with a negative comment. I don't think this is a case of sour grapes either since I gave him 18 months to help me and he didn't!

I have a friend who has diabetes and had to go to this clinic. I don't know that he ever saw the doctor, just the nurse practitioner.
