Upon your first visit, the endocrinologist will check your medical history, and ask you about any other medical condition you suffer from, the type of medications that you are taking, and whether you have any family history of hormone-related issues. Through these questions, the endocrinologist will try to know more about the symptoms and the extent of the problem. To get more insight, they may also talk to your primary doctor.
