Endo and TSH

Why would an endocrinologist be satisfied with just TSH?

My GP is the one who put me on Synthroid. Went to see an endo and he added Cytomel (5mcg, twice a day). He hasn't done blood work as I had just had done with the GP prior to seeing him. But I do know he says TSH tells him all he needs to know. I found that odd going by what all I've learned so far.

I'm tempted to see if my GP will switch me to branded Synthroid. I started it almost a year ago and even with the Cytomel added, feel no difference.
