I realize I am starting a new subject, but this is a little off topic. I would like some input if I am out of line sending this letter to my endo. Suggestions welcome. I don’t want to come across as a know it all or questioning his knowledge too much.
I was very disappointed in our visit yesterday. I feel that this could have be handled with a phone call since you didn’t know anything useful. I drove 1.5 hours for the appointment only to learn that you want me to go off of my hormones and retest in 3 weeks. Then I had the trip back.
The visit was a total wast of my time, your office time, and my money. In the future I would appreciate it if the lab work is not satisfactory to provide the information that you need that you or your nurse call me and we can make arrangement for further test. If a situation like this arises again, I will not be paying for that office visit.
I was sent to see you for issues not directly relating to my testosterone. I am willing to try to find out why my testosterone is low, but I would like to explore some of the other issues a little deeper. I was sent to you because of cortisol issues, which was brushed aside. Also, my thyroid is not ideal. I realize that I am not the expert, but I am not an idiot either.
