“My wife and I starting seeing Dr. Ross a few months ago. Her normal gyn had her on a hormone patch and the hot flashes were unbearable for her. After testing, Dr. Ross had a custom hormone program made for her. He had to adjust it once and now it’s perfect. No more hot flashes. Also, she had been on thyroid years ago but got off it over the years. She was tired and cold and she had other symptoms. Dr. Ross has been able to adjust her thyroid and she’s happy and I’m happy. As for me, it’s taken time but these past 2 weeks I lost 6 pounds which motivates me to keep working on losing 20 pounds. We both feel pretty descent right now and we’ll see Dr. Ross on our next trip to San Francisco to check in with him and fine tune our programs.”
“Where do I begin? Oh, yeah, right here! I saw Dr. Ross for the first time 23 years ago. For my condition, he advised a lot of things including testing for my thyroid, testing for food and chemical sensitivities and strict dietary changes like becoming a vegan and eating only gluten-free food. I didn’t do any testing and I tried the diet but never followed through. It’s hard when you lead a conventional life with conventional people who eat anything. Besides, all those friends were doing fine. Now, all these years and surgeries and continued recurrent infections all over the place and skin issues and blood pressure medication, and all those conventional friends now in their 40’s and they’re not looking or feeling so good anymore either, I’m ready to commit to my health.
My primary care doctor is wringing her hands, not knowing what to do with me anymore so she agreed to approve whatever lab testing Dr. Ross suggested. So now, his hunch about my low thyroid has proven to be true, among other things. I’m on the diet he advised for me 23 years ago. Kathleen gave me a lot of vegan and gluten-free snack ideas and that’s helping me keep on track. I love everything she told me to make, and now I’m getting inspired to try more recipes.
I still have to do the right test for food sensitivities, but I know I’m moving in the right direction now.
Changing your life, even for the better, is a tough decision until you make the choice for your future.”
“Dr. Ross gives you hope and the ability to heal yourself. I see Dr. Ross and I meditate every damn day and I feel great!.”
update from T.H.:
“I did it! 299.2 ilbs. Bye bye 300’s. Down 16 lbs since 2/8/12 and I can tell I am loosing inches too! It is 19 lbs since my highest last year. Had I listened to Dr. Ross last year and removed the processed type carbs, this change would have happened much sooner! It seems to be the missing piece of this complicated puzzle.”
“Dr. Ross saved my life. The positive impact on my life, my physical health and my way of thinking have improved so much. He detected a thyroid condition 10 years ago that no one else found. I weighed almost 300 pounds, low energy, depressed. A coworker recommended him to me and when I saw him the first time and he suggested along with other things, testing for hypothyroidism, I told him not to bother, that it would be pointless because so many other doctors had checked for it before. But he said, let’s just try a certain thyroid panel by blood and a 24 hour urine test. The tests came back showing that I was low thyroid and I lost 100 pounds over time. My depression also lifted. He slowly weaned me off Wellbutrin. It was amazing.
He sits down with you face to face for an uninterupted visit. And he offers phone consultations which have been helpful to me. I’ve been through some tough times and he has always been there to help me. He listens when I’m talking and thinks of solutions. He pays attention to what’s going on in my life and he doesn’t make me feel crazy like other doctors have in the past. He doesn’t just give prescriptions. He tries to think of natural things that help. He only recommends the best. He’s always been able to give me options for the course of treatment and a backup plan.
And he always follows up and cares about his patients. During that international thyroid shortage, I never ran out because they made sure I was covered so that I could remain feeling well.
He and Kathleen are a team. My quality of life would never be the same without them. I referred my mom and my husband and my friend. This friend bought a book about thyroid that she loved and she brought it to me, saying this is the best book about thyroid ever. I said, that’s my doctor’s book! So she goes to him, too.”
“I recently had an appointment with Dr. Ross to address my male hormones, my andropause. It was an excellent visit. A week or so later, I have found that the testosterone he gave me has made all the difference. I have been feeling better than I have in ages. I’ve been mowing the lawn and taking care of business. And it’s been really kinda nice.”
“I really feel comfortable with Dr. Ross. He reminds me of the way the doctors were in my country growing up, treating the patient naturally to support the body instead of only drugs. I trust Dr. Ross because he treats me as a person.”
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Ross for his customized intravenous vitamin drips about twice a month for many years. His IV drips keep my vitality and energy up. I appreciate his general knowledge and thoroughness. No matter what I ask him, if he doesn’t know the answer, he researches it accurately for me.”

“I love what I call ‘Dr. Ross’ Whole Health Partnership,’ how we work together. By following his advice, I’ve come a long way. I wanted to get my weight under control and that is happening slowly, but I’ve improved also in other areas that are important to me. I’ve dramatically reduced my antidepressants and my sleep is much better. Dr. Ross and Kathleen are always there for me, even calling me back on weekends. And I recently went over my bookkeeping and discovered that I’ve saved money seeing Dr. Ross the last few years over the years before when I spent a fortune in co-pays and prescriptions.”
“Dr. Ross, you are professional, passionate and caring. I came to you 16 years ago with immune system issues and we built up my health. I work out everyday now and feel great and people always think I’m about ten years younger, not just on looks but on energy.
Thank you for being there for me.”
