I'll be in the same boat when I move to Ohio this fall. My mom suggested asking my current doctor if there was anyone up in ohio they'd suggest in treating my PCOS. I'm also getting copies of all my blood work and the doctor's diagnosis and treatment so whichever doctor I end up with has a copy. I'm also going to ask my current doctor if she'd mind if my future doctor contacted her in regards to the diagnosis and if they have any questions.

I did google PCOS doctors in Illinois and there are a lot of threads with different people suggesting different doctors and clinics/offices for different areas in IL. Just a thought. Best of luck!

i'm in pa, so i can't really give a specific recommendation. but here's an idea -- because pcos typically involves insulin resistance, is there any type of diabetes/endocrinology specific clinic in your area?

i see a fantastic endocrinologist at the university of pittsburgh diabetes clinic, so maybe looking for something similar will help.

i have a major problem with the doctors that just say to diet and exercise. it might help some people, but if you metabolism is to the point that its just not working, no amount of diet and exercise is going to help. i was resistant to taking meds, but when i started taking them, it make a huge difference -- diet and exercise are actually effectice not, whereas they were not at all before. so i would definitely recommend trying different doctors until you find one that you can work with and explore all of your options. best of luck!

I don't know any in IL but my friend had a doctor telling her the exact same thing. I kept raving about my doctor and how understanding and insightful she is with PCOS so she gave her a shot. She's in love with her. So I say good idea and stick with it. If you don't like your doctor and you don't feel like they're helping you then find one that works for you. No one understands and cares about your body like you do.

I am looking to see if anyone knows of a doctor or clinic that specializes in PCOS in northern Illinois. I am so tired of doctors telling me I just need to eat better and exercise....like I don't know that. :) Thanks emoticon
