Hi everyone

I was with my doctor 12 days ago and she said she would refer me to an Endocrinologist and for an MRI scan..

Not that I am complaining but my letter came this morning with an appoint for the Endocrinologist and my case has been  prioritised as URGENT and I am to ring in the next five days..

Is this normal procedure??

Thank you 

Laura

    Dont forget that it might also be that the Endo wants to clear his/her work load so that s/he can get away early for Chrissy!

    Sorry, no idea whether it's normal as different at areas have different ways of doing things. My guess is that they want to ensure they offer you an appointment they are sure you can make, hence the request to ring them.
