What happens in a consultation with the Endocrinologist?
The Endocrinologist will begin speaking with you to understand the problems you are facing or concerned about. After taking a history from you, the doctor will proceed to examine you. As endocrine problems are predominantly hormonal problems, the doctor will usually arrange to perform blood tests to diagnose or assess your condition. After the blood test, the doctor will arrange to speak to you about the results and to recommend appropriate treatment and follow up schedule.
Most endocrine and hormonal problems are highly treatable with good treatment results, especially when the patients themselves are highly motivated to do so. So just relax, let the doctor know your concerns and allow the doctor to do his job to help you.
