|Premature thelarche and premature pubarche, much more common conditions than true precocious puberty, are 2 benign normal variant conditions that can look like precocious puberty but are nonprogressive or very slowly progressive. Premature thelarche refers to the isolated appearance of breast development, usually in girls younger than age 3 years; premature pubarche refers to appearance of pubic hair without other signs of puberty in girls or boys younger than age 7-8 years. A thorough history, physical examination, and growth curve review can help distinguish these normal variants from true sexual precocity.|
|How is precocious puberty diagnosed?
measurement of gonadotropins (LH and FSH), estradiol, testosterone and / or thyroid hormones
ultrasound of the adrenal glands and gonads (ovaries and testes)
gonadotropin-stimulating hormone (GnRH) stimulation test to determine the form of precocious puberty (gonadotropin-dependent or gonadotropin-independent)
magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

But there's other levels (I want to say it's called Tricare Plus) where you can choose to go to a civilian doctor however you do have to deal with copays but if you're really unhappy with the military doc near you then it may be worth it.
I'd definitely say to check in with the Military mommies thread - I'd bet at least a few of them have gotten disgusted with military docs and switch to the plan with the optional of civilian care and would be happy to give you plenty of info.
