I have been extremely satisfied with services I have received from the Edgewater office of Dr. Lee Metchick. Crystal Mead, PA, is amazing, professional and thorough with every checkup I have had with her as is Dr. Metchick. I am grateful for the care I have received and will continue to receive as one of their patients.

Dr. Metchick has been caring for my son since his diagnosis with diabetes at the age of 11(almost eight years now). He saved my sons life, and has saved my sanity many times. His commitment to my son's care and well-being has gone far beyond what I could have hoped for. He has seen us through many an emergency/tragedy and has never denied my call or minimized my concern at any hour of the day. As a mom, I am eternally indebted to Dr.Metchick. I would vote for him if he ran for president, and even go as far as to manage his campaign. He is an outstanding physician and person, and our family is truly grateful for the continuous care he has provided our son. My boy is 19 years old now, and I can't help but feel that without Dr. Metchick I may not be able to put my arms around him, hug and kiss him, argue incessantly with him at times, and continue to watch him grow and mature into the amazing man he is becoming. Those are difficult feelings to articulate in a thank you note, but simply put...Thank you Dr. M.  I don't know what we would have done or where we might have ended up without you!

Dr. Metchick and his very capable staff made the biopsy of my thyroid nodule a quick and painless procedure.  No need to worry if you need their services, you couldn't be in better hands.

Dr. Lee Metchick did fine needle aspiration Biopsy on the left side of my thyroid recently.  The procedure was very quick and very little
pain was associated with the procedure. It was comforting to  have a Medical person reading  my recent  ultersound  and Dr. Metchick on the other side  knowing  where to  perform the biopsy.

I highly recommend Dr. Lee  Metchick for  FINE NEEDLE ASPIRATION BIOPSY.

I had a biopsy this month. The biopsy was quicker than I thought and the poke was quick and painless. I was surprised. Dr. Metchick and his staff were really great. They made it comfortable and were very nice. If there is anyone who is thinking about having a biopsy I would suggest getting it done and I would recommend Dr. Metchick to anyone.

My daughter and I met Dr. Metchick for the first time today concerning my diabetes.  The staff was wonderful and accommodating.  They even called me when a cancellation appointment became available- a month early to get me in. No long "wait time" in his office.

I have never met such a warm, caring, highly informed doctor as Dr. Metchick. Because of my diabetes, I will be his patient for a long time- I will definitely look forward to every appointment and recommend him highly.  Simply the best experience I have ever had with a doctor!

Dr. Metchick and his staff run a well organized, friendly and personalized office without the long waits normally associated with medical appointments. Dr. Metchick handled my needle biopsy skillfully and carefully with no pain or discomfort during the short proceedure. I had no residual effects in the days after my proceedure. There is no need to be nervous prior to having a needle biopsy in this office!!

Dr. Metchick and his staff were great! They made you feel comfortable. As for the biopsy, I hardly felt it at all. There wasn,t time to be nervous as Dr. Metchick and his staff kept an upbeat, warm, relaxed mood there. Very impressed by them. Thanks for making that easy to go through.

Though a bit apprehensive about a Needle Biopsy for a Thyroid Nodule, I was pleased to find the procedure caused very little discomfort, took little time, and was easy to handle.  The Staff and Dr. Metchick very obviously are well practiced with the procedure and made it easy for me to relax. I had thought there would be medication required to lessen the discomfort and pain, but found little of either with the very very small needle Dr, Metchick used.  No one need be anxious about having this procedure.

I must say, I wasn't nervous about having needle aspiration. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Metchick. I found that the procedure felt like a bee sting and it was over pretty quick.  I did have a little discomfort afterwards.  Nothing Tylenol couldn't take care of.  My overall experience was a 9 on a scale from 1-10.  Dr Metchicks office personnel was very friendly. I would recommend to anyone.
Thank you.

Dr Metchick and staff was the best experience I have had with a medical office.  I had a biopsy of thyroid nodules, Dr. Metchick was so kind and caring as his staff and the procedure was quick with minimal discomfort.  I had no issues after the visit and enjoyed the rest of my day.  This is the way the medical field should be with their patients.

Dr Metchik and staff are awesome. I have not been disappointed with anything. After many years of Doctors who treated you as a number in the rotation it is so refreshing to have a Dr who takes the time to be familiar with your issues. He seems to take personal interest in MY care. I really feel he is the best Dr ever. Thank you for your personal attention and care.

I was very satisfied with both staff and doctor. Dr. Metchick made me feel very comfortable and safe as he did my biopsy. I was expecting the worse and it was exactly as he said it would be- very quick and just a little uncomfortable. I have already bragged on him to other people at my school because of the whole experience being much better then I expected. Even my husband was surprised when he was allowed to come in and hold my hand during the biopsy. As he watched Dr, Metchick do the procedure he was impressed by his assuredness and his kindness.

Inquiring minds (may) want to know.......
Regarding the FNA, fine needle biopsy, of my thyroid nodule, I have been asked by my family, and even by my internist, if it was painful. The best way to describe the procedure is to say that there is minimal discomfort and a feeling of a little pressure; I didn't need "Tylenol" afterward, and my pain threshold is relatively low. Dr. Metchick is quite skilled in the procedure and his staff is excellent. Hope this will help to alleviate any fears you may have.

I was scheduled for a biopsy of my thyroid and to be honest I was apprehensive and didn't sleep much the night before.  I hate needles as I'm sure most people don't find needles to be a fun experience.  When I arrived for my appointment, as usual the office staff were professional and friendly.  The office is very calming with a waterfall in the waiting room and low lighting.  Once I was called in the office and Dr. Metchek entered the room he put me at ease right away with his upbeat and confidant demeanor.  I had the biopsy and I must say it was one of the best experiences I've had.  There was no pain at all, just a little pressure and it was done within seconds.  When it was over I asked Dr Metchek if that's all there was to a biopsy and he said yes it was over.  If you need a biopsy don't let fear keep you from doing it.  The entire staff and Dr. Metchek are wonderful and very caring.  Discuss your concerns with him and he will let you know exactly
what was going to happen.  When I say the biopsy was no big deal I mean it.  If I can do it with my dread of needles anyone can do.  I would refer Dr. Metchek's office to anyone.  I have been to several endocrinologist and he is the best.  I thank God that I was referred to him.

This was my first visit with Dr. Metchick, I thought he was absolutely awesome. Very relaxed atmosphere,very caring doctor. Office staff was excellent. I only wish I would have seen him 2 years ago. Highly recommend.

I think Dr. Metchick is great. The office is clean and the staff is very nice. I went in for a biopsy on my thyroid last week and the nurse as well as my cousin held my hand; and Dr. Metchick was really patient with me. The procedure went well (didn't hurt much) and he gave me two hugs before I left the office. My follow up appointment went great as well. He sat and spoke with me regarding my health and answered ALL of my questions. He even offered to help in other health related areas in my life. I have only seen him three times but I truly believe that the first impression is a lasting one. As a patient I'm sure that I will learn more about him and establish an even better relationship in the future. Overall my experience has been great. Thank you and your office so much!

I felt compelled to write , I have seen Dr. Metchick three times in the past 2 years. I have never felt more comfortable with a doctor or an office ever. I never wait for an appointment and never wait in the waiting room. Reading about money issues with other people only makes my recognize that people have no consideration for what it take to run a business. As a business owner myself I understand what it takes to run an efficient office. You will not find a better doctor or office !

I honestly cannot say enough GREAT things about Dr. Metchick.I had seen countless Dr's that dismissed my concerns, "feeling something in my throat" discovered on a routine x-ray was something, further testing determined small cysts. I followed up with yet another ENT, a new ENDO, and only to be discouraged being told it's nothing." there is no way you can feel it" Then I discovered Dr Lee Metchick, I can honestly say, I found him to have the best bed-side manner of ANY physician I had seen to date.Dr. Metchick put my mind at ease from my first visit his focus was learning about ME, what I was feeling; asking about symptoms assuring me it was not “all in my head". And for the first time, in 8 months I found someone that could offer a non-evasive procedure, that may eliminate this feeling in my throat" I underwent a fine needle aspiration on a thyroid cyst, with nothing more than a slight uncomfortable feeling. First feeling of RELIEF in such a long time. I am a LIFELONG patient!!
