Endocrine Surgery Appointments

To schedule an appointment with an endocrine surgeon, please call us at (734) 936-5738, or visit our online appointment request page.

We may request copies of your recent labs and additional testing may also be ordered to determine the severity of your condition. Our nurses will screen the preliminary information you provide for what will be required. We may also need additional records from your referring physician.

If you have documented parathyroid disease, you may be interested in our Priority Parathyroid Program, which provides a remote consultation with a surgeon and a single-trip solution for your surgical care.

Please visit our Insurance Questions page if you need help understanding your coverage or if you have questions about the participating insurance plans accepted at the University of Michigan Health System.

Do I need a referral?

Depending on your insurance coverage, you may need a referral from your primary care physician. Medicare and traditional Blue Cross/Blue Shield patients will not, but most others will.

Please contact your referring physician to obtain that authorization if your carrier requires it. The authorization can be faxed to (734) 936-5830.

Traveling for your treatment?

We recognize that travel to Ann Arbor from afar may be difficult for some patients. Options are available to assist with coordinating visits. Check out the Priority Parathyroid Program or contact us with questions for other endocrine diagnoses needing surgical consultation.
