If you live in a rural area, your choices might be limited to one or two specialist, but if you live in an area where you have more specialist choices, there are a few things you’ll want to take into consideration when choosing an endocrinologist
Talk to your primary care physician. It’s likely that they already have someone who they prefer to refer patients who need additional help with their endocrine system
to. This can be a great way to get your health needs addressed, but remember it’s not your only option. You don’t have to go to the specialist you were referred to. You can also find someone else whom you are comfortable with.
Make sure that in addition to having a great deal of training in the endocrine field that the specialist who will be treating you also has an interest in furthering their education and works hard to stay on top of the latest developments. The more they know, the better they will be able to treat and diagnose you.
Pay careful attention to how they interact with you as a patient. Going to see the doctor can be an uncomfortable experience, you don’t want to make it worse by going to someone you can’t relate to. Find a specialist who gets along well with you and who will make each appointment as stress free as possible.
There’s no reason the specialist can’t take the time to discuss your health with you and answer any questions you have. If it always seems like they’re too busy to talk to you, than it’s time for you to start looking for another specialist. You are in control of your own care, so never compromise your health.
