- We offer appointments for diagnosis and treatment of Endocrine Disorders in people age 30 years and younger.
- We offer appointments, Monday through Wednesday and Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. We are closed on Thursday and on weekends.
- We work our best to reduce wait times. Nevertheless, the appointment in total, wait time included, may last far longer than you might expect.
- At minimum set aside 1-2 hours for the entire visit.
- For Endocrinology appointments, we recommend that you leave yourself plenty of time for the entire visit. Especially if you will also be seeing the diabetes educator or nutritionists.
- We recommend that you do not schedule anything right after the appointment to ensure you get the most out of your appointment. For example, if you have a meeting, you may not want to schedule an endocrine appointment beforehand.
- PEP providers review your medical history from your patient packet at the first visit.
- You may print this paperwork from our patient forms page.
- Complete it at home and bring it to your appointment.
- If you are unable to print the forms, please arrive thirty minutes early for your first visit or stop by the office prior to your appointment so that you can get the blank forms.
