Why See an Endocrinologist?
If you’re visiting an endocrinologist it’s often because you were referred by your primary doctor or your insurance company because you’re in need of an expert opinion on something relating to your endocrine system – typically the under or over-production of one or many hormones.
Though your family doctor may have some skills in diagnosing hormonal conditions, he/she will typically refer you to an endocrinologist for a second opinion.?Endocrinologists specialize in understanding and treating hormonal diseases which allows them to recommend and provide the best forms of treatment for your specific condition.
