What to expect at your visit?

The first visit will begin with a brief discussion about why you are being seen and your medical history.  All the tests already done along with the notes from the referring physician will be reviewed.  A physical exam will be done with special attention to the problem in mind.  A plan will then be formulated which may include blood/laboratory tests, imaging tests, prescription medication to treat your disorder, and appropriate followup visit to monitor your progress.  Where appropriate, each patient will be offered education in nutrition and exercise as necessary.  Our goal is to create the most well-rounded personalized experience for each patient in order to optimize their health and well being.

Will I need a follow up visit?

Most patients with hormone disorders need follow up, although the frequency of such visits will vary by the condition and patient. Labs and other results are not discussed over the phone unless specified otherwise. Once the endocrinology problem has been treated successfully and no longer requires active monitoring, the patient is typically discharged to the care of his or her primary provider and can make a follow up appointment with the Endocrinologist as the need arises.
