Endocrinology is the branch of medicine dealing with the endocrine system, a complex group of glands (organs that produce hormones), which help control activities in your body, such as reproduction, metabolism and growth and development.

Endocrinology involves caring for the person, as well as the disease. The physician–patient relationship can be an important, therapeutic process. The TGCMG endocrinologist knows that caring for disorders of the endocrine system necessitates understanding the patient on a personal and social level, as well as the physiological.

Endocrinologists are trained to diagnose and treat hormone imbalances and problems by helping to restore the normal balance of hormones in your system.

They take care of many conditions including:

  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid diseases
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Over or under production of hormones
  • Menopause
  • Osteoporosis
  • Hypertension
  • Cholesterol (lipid) disorders
  • Infertility
  • Lack of growth (short stature)
  • Cancers of the endocrine glands

The goal of the endocrinologist is to determine the source of the problem and develop a treatment plan to address it. The endocrinologist of TGC commits to continued fundamental and clinical research, staying current with the latest medical processes and developments.

Our endocrinologist may be contacted directly or through referral, depending on your needs.
