There are fewer than 6,500 endocrinologists in the U.S. to treat millions of patients suffering from metabolic and hormonal conditions. Given there is roughly 1 endocrinologist for every 46,000 people, it can take 3-to-6 months for a new patient to book an appointment with an endocrinologist. This waiting period could worsen, as 8% of endocrinologists retire each year and Americans age 65 and older will reach 80 million by 2040 resulting in an increasing number of endocrine and metabolic cases with fewer endocrinologists to treat them.
