Is it common to have a 4+ months wait to get into see an endocrinologist? Or is it just here where I live (KC, MO)? I scheduled an appointment (with a referral) at two separate medical clinics. Both had over 3 months wait period for first available appointment.
My PCP decided I should try seeing a urologist in the mean time. This was a major regret. Other than just checking testosterone level, he did no further testing. He didn't even check my balls (not that I wanted him to, but was expecting it and couldn't believe he didn't do it). He just automatically prescribed Androderm. I'll leave it at that for now.
My first endocrinologist appointment finally rolled around. It went OK, he ordered what seemed to be a few of the right tests and agreed to try determining the cause of the low-t rather than just doing TRT. But given the wait time I decided to go keep the appointment with the other endo. Unfortunately a family medical issue came up and I had to reschedule it. Now it's another 4 months (after waiting over 3) before the next available.
So I was curious if this is typical everywhere?
Also, anyone in the KC metro area know of a good endo that specializes with low-t? It's quickly becoming apparent the endo I am seeing is not all that knowledgeable other than prescribing TRT. Unfortunately, having some other health issues I don't feel comfortable going to one of those specialized clinics. The endo's I have appointments with are associated to other doctors that I see so they have my medical history.
I have other questions but will create another post soon. Thanks.
