ENT Dr. or ENDOCRINOLOGIST?

I am having some confusion on who to see-have been seeing a ENT Dr., but a friend suggested I try a ENDO Dr. What some pros and cons of each?

Well, for what?

Do you have thyroid related swallowing / breathing problems. ENT dont run thyroid hormone tests.

If its for a thyroid hormone issue, see and endo

I see neither.
I saw an Endo twice and sacked her because I wasnt happy with her.
I have been treated from day one for Graves, Hyperthyroidism, RAI & TT by my GP of 26 years and will still continue to do so.
Unless the Endo is prepared to 'work wtih you'...shop around until you find one who will give you answers and listen to you.
They are very hard to find these days.
