Sacramento Attorney and Patient, Erin Radekin, on February 16, 2014 said:

“I have been receiving care from Dr. Godby since June, 2012. He is responsible for a revolutionary change in my approach to my health care and a positive change in my health. After being on synthroid and another pharmaceutical medication for 23 years, I was suffering from multiple serious conditions that caused debilitating symptoms – IBS, anemia, low vitamin b12, and other conditions. I had severe fatigue in the morning and afternoons, and would often feel like I was going to pass out after exercise. Dr. Godby ordered comprehensive lab testing and determined that my current thyroid medication was not treating my hypothyroidism, and that most of my health complaints were due to inadequately treated hypothyroidism. He recommended that I use natural dessicated thyroid, digestive enzymes and other supplements, and I began feeling better almost immediately after beginning this course of treatment. Over the next year he helped me to treat my adrenal insufficiency as well, and I finally began feeling better than I had in several years! As a result of his guidance my IBS is almost completely resolved as is my fatigue and other symptoms. He has also guided me regarding the use of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, which has contributed to my improved health and well-being.  

Dr. Godby is a compassionate and very competent health care provider, and I highly recommend his services.  His staff is professional and responsive.  Dr. Godby and his staff always respond to my emails within 24 hours, and they are consistently courteous and helpful.  His services, lab testing and supplements are also affordable.  Most importantly, he has treated me as an equal partner in directing my healthcare treatment. I never feel like he does not respect my intelligence and innate knowledge of what is best for my body. 

I am very grateful for Dr. Godby’s guidance and assistance and highly recommend his services.”
