Thyroid Disorders in Rochester Hills, MI & Belleville, MI

The thyroid is a gland located in the neck that plays a crucial role in your body's functions. A part of the endocrine system, the thyroid is responsible for creating and releasing hormones that control your metabolism, energy, heart rate, digestion, mental focus, and more. Thyroid disorders occur when the thyroid produces too much or too little of the hormones your body needs, causing an imbalance that might trigger a range of symptoms. Some of the more common thyroid disorders include hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid), hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid), and goiters (a swollen thyroid), all of which are common in the United States. If you believe you're living with a thyroid disorder, the staff at WellHealth Medical Associates can provide a screening and treatment to help you get back on balance. Schedule a consultation at our office in Rochester Hills or Belleville, MI today.

At your initial consultation, we'll perform a comprehensive health screening and review your medical history. Thyroid conditions can develop from a number of causes, including autoimmune disorders, genetics, health issues, and other factors. The details of your treatment will depend on which type of thyroid disorder you have and its underlying causes. At WellHealth Medical Associates, we commonly treat thyroid problems with a personalized combination of prescription medicines, health supplements, and hormone replacement therapies to bring your hormones back in line. In some cases, we may refer you to a specialist for surgery to have part (or all) of your thyroid removed. If our screenings identify signs of thyroid cancer, we can refer you to a cancer specialist to discuss chemotherapy and other treatment strategies.

The symptoms of a thyroid disorder can vary based on the type of disorder you have. An individual with an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) might notice:

  • Feelings of fatigue
  • Memory problems
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Feelings of depression
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Slowed heart rate

An individual with an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) may experience:

  • Increased appetite
  • Sweating or hot flashes
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Trembling

I’ve been going here for years now. Dr. Murthy is a great doctor. Always looks out for my best interest. Only thing I’ve ever had a problem with is getting called on Friday night for video when my appt was on a Wednesday. But I understand there’s only 2 providers and a lot of patients. Other than that they helped me with a lot. Thank you guys

Dr. Murthy is incredibly knowledgeable in treating even the most complicated health issues. I have multiple autoimmune problems and since I’ve started seeing him, he has given me my life back! He is very understanding and compassionate and his superior knowledge in rare diseases make it so easy to talk to him and get the best treatments. I never believed it was possible for me to have a life without pain and I am forever grateful to him for giving me that! His PA Dr. Olivia is the best, she is very easy to talk to and very compassionate and knowledgeable as well. The entire staff at this office are amazing 😊 My 3 year old daughter and I are always happy to go in and see everyone! They make you feel very comfortable, like you’re family 😁 This is by far the best Primary Care office I have been to in over 10 years and I’m so blessed to have found them Thank you 🙏
