I really can’t say enough about the great care I received at the Norman Parathyroid Center in the Hospital for Endocrine Surgery in Tampa, FL. I traveled across the country for my parathyroidectomy procedure. I was found to have not just one, but two diseased glands, which were removed by my star surgeons. I am so grateful to the entire staff at the beautiful new Endocrine Hospital for their excellent care and treatment of me. I felt completely safe and in the best of hands every minute I was there. I would highly recommend this practice for anyone anywhere in the world in need of parathyroid surgery.
