Hello Angela,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

To clarify, you are looking for an Endocrinologist, not a Bariatric (weight loss) specialist, correct?

Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 4 years ago.
I have not heard back for confirmation that you are specifically looking for an Endocrinologist in Liverpool, so will address that aspect of the question. In finding private Endocrinologist in or around Liverpool, I cannot discern that any of them further specialize in Bariatric medicine.

There are several private Endocrinologists that I can identify:
Aftab Ahmad, in Liverpool, telephone #: 01515221826,
James Walker,in Wirral, telephone #: 01506523855,
D Ewins, in Chester, telephone #: 01244684325, and
Stephen Stanaway,in Wrexham, telephone #: 08081682882.

If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
