PA Specialists

As long as adequate preparation for testing is done, your primary care physician should be able to order the initial blood test to determine whether you may have primary aldosteronism. If your test is positive, you will then need to see a specialist for confirmatory testing, subtyping, and treatment initiation. Endocrinologists, nephrologists, and cardiologists are the designated specialists to diagnose and treat primary aldosteronism.

Because the disease is largely underdiagnosed, it is difficult to find experienced specialists. The further away patients live from large metropolitan areas, the more difficult it becomes to find adequate care. Before listing them, the Foundation reviews the credentials of all physicians. Those with known low case volume are only included if patients report positive experience. When applicable, this information is provided in the physician’s profile. Should you be interested in consulting one of the listed physicians, we strongly recommend you also perform your own due diligence to confirm facts and details.

Our directory also includes radiologists specialized in Adrenal Venous Sampling, and endocrine surgeons with expertise in Adrenalectomy.
