We make every effort to accommodate patients by coordinating pre-requisite appointments prior to their consultation with the endocrinologist. If patients are traveling from out of the area, we do our best to coordinate same-day appointments. Our referral coordinator works closely with new patients to help gather information and facilitate all necessary testing.
