The Endocrinology section's providers offer expert consultation in a variety of areas.
Before Your Appointment
If you are new to Endocrinology, please do your best to have the referring provider fax outside records to our office so that our providers have your medical history on hand at your appointment. Our fax number is (206) 223-2313.
Pre-Visit Laboratory Testing
Pre-visit laboratory testing is required for most new and established endocrinology patient visits. Please contact our office to ensure your lab orders have been placed in the computer system prior to your appointment. Our phone number is (206) 223-6627.
Please review the pre-visit laboratory tests we require. If you are new, you can share this list with your referring provider to ensure they are ordered before your visit with our team.
Labs may be drawn at any Virginia Mason laboratory at least one day prior to your appointment. If you have labs done at your local pharmacy please have them faxed to (206) 223-2313.
If you are self-referring and do not have outside records or recent labs please expect multiple visits with our providers in order to complete labs and other testing.
Patients with Diabetes
If you are a patient with diabetes, please bring your blood glucose meter or insulin pump to your appointment.
Please arrive 20 minutes prior to your appointment to complete paperwork. If you are running late you may have an abbreviated visit with your provider and or may be asked to reschedule.
