I live in the Coeur d'Alene/Spokane area and it seems like all the endocrinologists around here focus on diabetes. I go to one of these locally but I'm frustrated how my panhypopituitarism is being treated. Most of the hormone tests prescribed by my doctor don't jive with what major I read on reputable online sites (Mayo, NIH, etc.).
I keep telling myself that I need to get to the Mayo Clinic for testing and a treatment plan.

If you have access to Kaiser Perm, there is a Dr Javor in Riverside - still a tough drive from SD, but its an option. He was my doc for 1 year.

Hi Mike,

You would think. Unfortunately there are not that many true specialists in the field. I hope you are able to find someone soon. I know travelling can be difficult, but it may be worth a visit to LA.

Take care,
Tammy

Hi Mike,

I apologize for the delay in getting back with you. We were away at a conference and I am still trying to catch up on everything. I am not personally aware of an endocrinologist in the San Diego area. We do have a doctor on our list in San Diego, he is a neurosurgeon. He may be able to recommend someone for you. Here is a link to his profile . Please feel free to contact me at (805) 499-9973 or [email protected] if you have any questions.

Take care,
Tammy

I'm looking for an pituitary endocrinologist or pituitary center in San Diego, Ca I don't want to go to Los Angeles if at all possible. I've lost 2/3rds of my field of vision from this ugly disease and would have to take public transportation which is an all day affair for the 15 minute Dr. visit. Please let me know if any of you out there know of a good Endo. Mike
