#Thyroid Diseases

The Facts
The thyroid is a small gland located below the Adam's apple in your neck. It releases hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), which increase the amount of oxygen your body uses and stimulate your cells to produce new proteins. By controlling the release of these hormones, the thyroid determines the metabolic rate of most of your body's organs.

The thyroid gland is regulated by thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), which is made by the pituitary gland in the brain. Normally, when thyroid hormone levels in the body are high, they will "switch off" the production of TSH, which in turn stops the thyroid from making more T4 and T3.

Problems occur when the thyroid gland becomes either underactive (hypothyroidism) or overactive (hyperthyroidism). Thyroid problems are more common in women than men. Cancer may also develop in the thyroid gland.

The most common causes of #tendinitis are strain, overexertion, injury, repetitive movements, and sudden or unaccustomed movements. Tendinitis is most common in seniors and middle-aged people, since the tendons of older individuals lack the elasticity of younger people and have sustained hundreds of microscopic tears due to wear and tear over the years.

Was in the emergency room for about 20hrs before going into surgery for appendicitis. The first doctor on staff at night was not confident in his diagnosing, my file was lost so I couldnt get medication for a long time, the doctor on night shift left without informing the day shift staff that I had to go into surgery, my file was lost again so I couldnt talk to the day shift doctor without him having the file in front of him. After finding the file, he quickly went through, poked my appendix site and called for the surgeon (only good part of the experience). Now I know to choose any other hospital for other than this one - emergency or not.

The only thing worse than knowing that a loved one was sent to a hospital, is knowing they were sent to Mackenzie Health. Though doctors here have the means to save lives, some of them have the ignorance or contempt not to. I say this because someone I know could have died here twice, over something totally preventable that didn't take a practicing physician to figure out. Some staff here, particularly in Triage, are very good. But the good staff are few, and usually in between crabby staff who don't care at all. The whole system here is flawed, and no efforts seemed to have been made to improve it. I've been coming to this hospital for over 15 years, only because it's the closest, and it hasn't changed from my experiences back then. I often consider driving to Newmarket for my hospital needs, which is more worth it.

They should be ashamed of them self to even call them self a hospital. nurses are rude, doctors are useless, security are inconsiderate! What a disappointment! York Central Hospital Days was well respected!

This is the hospital I am going to avoid. After you are in the Emergency room, no one guide you where you should go and where is the line up. You have to find it out or someone will yielding to you .... Nurses are like to wondering and chatting tow each other. Before you get to see a doctoer there are 4 extra steps needed to take . Fannally, the doctor come to your bed and suggest you to see your own family doctor which only take about 5 mins of his time to do. There is the hostpital with lots of funny staff and there is the hospital you can have lots of fun with it ----- just like wonderland not a hospital.

Very unprofessional and unfriendly staff. Nurse' advice is not correct and it would be very dangerous to go home with it. I end up having to go to another hospital to resolve the issues. It was an absolutely horrible experience!

I want to thank the Dr. Morong for doing my surgery. She was so kind and caring, the nursing staff and the surgery manager were awesome. Everyone treated me with such respect and gave me the information to help me get better. Mackenzie Health, thank you for everything, what a great place!

I am writing to ask you to thank all the staff who helped me so much when on October 27th I unexpectedly arrived at Emergency Department with my left eye problem at the morning today. I feel that your staff: Pat M (Triage); Samira, Mojgan, Oreff (Nurses ) and Dr. Berliner, should be congratulated for their standard of care. I was examined, received treatment and received a referral to the Specialist in a very reasonable time approximately 1.5 hour. I wish especially to thank everyone at Emergency Department, these thanks, which although brief are deeply held, and recognise this superb team's contributions to your excellent service. Regards.

The ER nurse was terrible. She was running from patient to patient barely doing her job like a chicken with its head cut off. The ER doctor told me that I would have to get an ultra sound just to be sure that it was my appendix. The guy who did my ultra sound was great, but apparently the shots weren't good enough. Back to the ER where I was told I needed a cat scan. After the cat scan, they confirmed it was my appendix and they I would need surgery. The doctor told me they would give me some antibiotics and that I would get surgery by 6:30AM the next day. They even told me that there was a good chance they would rupture. WHAT? And I have to wait? The headless nurse came to give me the antibiotics but got distracted and I had to remind her to do it several times before she finally did. They told me I would be waiting in the ER till a room was ready. It was almost 1AM at this point and I was exhausted and starving and dehydrated because I was told I couldn't eat or drink. They put me on a stretcher in the hallway to sleep all night. Headless nurse told me that I wouldn't be admitted for surgery until I had a room. I forced myself up and went to complain to some other nurses who laughed at me and told me I was hallucinating due to morphine. I tried to tell them that's what the ER nurse told me but they didn't care. So I went back to my corner and cried. Another nurse approached me and said there was no documentation to prove that the ER doctor told my family and I that I would be having surgery by then. I was finally admitted into a room where I had to wait until 4PM before I had surgery. When I woke up from surgery, I was in massive amounts of pain and I was not given a Popsicle/freezie like I was given in other hospitals. I was told having anything would make me sick. I was dehydrated because they had barely given me any fluids through my IV (I had only been through two bags in two whole days) and I hadn't had anything to drink since 11:30AM the day before. My recovery period after surgery, wasn't too awful and the doctors who did my surgery were okay. Everything else was a terrible experience.
