Pituitary Tumor in Man, looking for a good endo Dr!

I was diagnosed through MRI with a pituitary tumor and I am looking for a good endocrinologist in NE in PA. I have an appointment on Monday, March 19th but really would like to find someone who specializes in pituitary tumors, most likely non-functioning.
Please help.

Re: Pituitary Tumor in Man, looking for a good endo Dr!

I would suggest asking around to everyone you know first off. Checking on line is a good way as well. Be honest with your doctor and tell him you want a specialist in that field. He shouldn't be offended and if he is, so what, it's your body and your life. I wish you luck with all you're going through.

[QUOTE=would like to find someone who specializes in pituitary tumors[/QUOTE]

I believe the University of Virginia is the leading pituitary center in the world - and its probably within (long) driving distance. What I did was contact them (lookup the info for neurosurgery dept on their website) and they will tell you everything they need. You can send it all down there and they will review and give you an opinion.

No matter where you go to get the first recommendation, if you are going to have it taken out, call these guys. They average something like 6 per day.

I am followed by a center on the west coast. It is vital to be followed by someone specialized in pituitary disorders.

Also there is a book written by a journalist that got a large Prolactinoma. His book is Man Made by Ken Baker.
