Instructions for your appointment

When coming for a first appointment, it is important that patients bring in a copy of prior lipid profiles (blood tests) as well as the associated treatment strategies. This will help the endocrinologist to refine the appropriate regimen. If a patient has not had a recent lipid profile and chemistry panel, getting a set of tests prior to the visit will help determine the appropriate management strategies at the time of the first visit.
