Carcinoid/NET Friendly Physicians
It is very difficult for many carcinoid/NETs patients to find a local physician to meet their medical needs on an ongoing basis. In addition to specialists there are doctors from a variety of medical fields that have been identified as:
- Having an interest in diagnosing and treating carcinoid and neuroendocrine tumor patients
- Willing to consult with national and international carcinoid/NETs specialists
- Recommended by patients who use them locally and trust the (patients' comments are often included for these doctors)
You should be aware that not all the doctors listed here have the same treatment approach. You must make your own inquiries as to whether a particular doctor's approach complements how you want to treat your condition. In that regard, talking to your family doctor, and other carcinoid patients, whether at a local support group or in one of the online groups may help you make your decision.
Support groups are also an excellent source for information about local doctors who have gained experience in treating carcinoid/NETs.
