In the past I have always been seen by a medical geneticist who specializes in metabolic disorders. I know a few people in Australia who have said they are seen by endocrinologist, BUT they have told me that this specialization really has nothing to do with PKU and therefore their doctors do not have the necessary knowledge to properly treat PKU.
