The endocrinologist can also likely take care of the evaluation for that, but you might need an ENT to look further into it. ...Read more

If the surgeon is not available, she can go see any doctor like an internist or an endocrinologist whom she saw in the beginning of 2012(before surgery was done). ...Read more
