What Type Of Doctor Do You Go To For Osteoporosis? (after Diagnosed)

I was diagnosed via a Dexascan by my GYN. She has since retired, and I would prefer someone who is trained in osteoporosis.

My primary dr( internal medicine) ordered the dexascan. He prescribed Alendronate, I didn’t tolerate the medicine. So have been referred to.a Rheumatologist. It will vary which dr treats you for it. Call your insurance company and ask who will treat in and when you can get appointments.
