Mine talks with me for as long as needed and answers my questions. Then he
checks my feet, listens to my heart, my carotid artery in my neck and feels
my thyroid. By the way, my internist does all these checks as well, but she
also feels my abdomen. I would say that for $120/visit you should be
getting more than a conversation, but that's just my opinion. It will be
interesting to hear other people's experiences.

My old endo was like this. In addition he always listened to my
heart and breathing, and felt my abdomen for any possible
problems. Guess he was just an old school doctor and wasn't afraid
to "get his hands dirty".
Since I have to totally pay for all the doctor fees out of pocket, I
think for $120 a visit I should be getting more than someone looking
at a graph for 5 minutes.
What do other peoples' endos do during a visit?
