Endocrinologists are specially trained physicians who diagnose diseases related to the glands.
The primary function of the endocrine glands is the secretion of hormones. The endocrine system is made up of the pancreas, thyroid, parathyroid, pineal, hypothalamus, adrenal and pituitary glands, as well as the ovaries and testes.
“Endocrinologist” treats patients with known or suspected endocrine disorders.
Under our care, patients who are living with all types of diabetes, from pre- or "borderline" diabetes to those who are experiencing complex issues that require intensive insulin therapy, insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors are closely monitored and cared for.
We emphasize preventive care to minimize the risk of developing life-altering complications of diabetes type 1 and type 2, and help patients live longer, healthier lives.
Some of the more common conditions treated by endocrinologists include:
Cancers of the endocrine glands
Over- or under-production of hormones
The endocrine glands secrete the hormones that control our metabolism, reproduction, growth and development. The doctors who work with us are experts in treating endocrine related diseases.
Their intent is to aid each patient in returning to excellent health with the restoration of normal hormone levels. Our endocrinologists are joined by a highly trained and experienced clinical staff to treat a wide range of endocrine system disorders and diseases.
A great number of our patients are treated with appropriate medications and diet. Exercise and healthy lifestyle choices are also part of the regimen recommended by our Endocrinologists.
