What type of dr should I see for yearly exam, if I have no spleen? Endocrinologist or Internist?
Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
Any general medicine care provider (ie., family or internal medicine) worth their salt should be able to deal with someone without a spleen.
On occasion, if there's some extenuating circumstance, a hematologist can sometimes be of value. I would not see how or why an endocrinologist would be helpful in this situation.
Be well, BY
