Possibly the best Cushing's doctor is at OHSU (oregon health sciences). Where in the west are you?

I also had Cushing's. The most basic testing is a 24 Urinary Free cortisol, followed by a dex/crh test and midnight cortisol sampling. Those are good for a baseline to see how high you are secreting. An ACTH is also good.

Whatever you do, see an endo who specializes in pituitary disorders. Most endos focus their practice on either diabetes or thyroid issues and while that's all good it isn't helpful with Cushing's.

There are also excellent endos in LA. Let me know where you're located and I can direct you to a few. One thing I realized during my fight with Cushing's is that you have to be willing to travel a number of hours to see a good endo.
