What to expect at your Endocrinology Appointment:
  • Initial appointments are approximately one hour and follow up appointments are up to 30 minutes.
  • During a first appointment your endocrinologist will:
    • Explore your current situation and your past medical history. Please bring along any relevant tests and paper work you may have.
    • Undertake a physical examination. You may be required to have some further tests.
      • Make an initial diagnosis if there is sufficient information at this stage and discuss possible
        treatment options.
      • At a follow-up appointment they will:
        • Review any changes in your health.
        • Review the results of any tests ordered at the last appointment. 
        • Review or commence treatment.
  • Trainee Doctors May be Present: We help train doctors and so sometimes we may have a trainee doctor present.  We will always ask your permission first.  You can decline the presence of the trainee doctor either prior to the consultation or at anytime over the consultation.   This will have no impact on the medical care offered to you.  The trainee doctor would be present in an observational capacity only.
