THE CENTER FOR DIABETES, OBESITY, METABOLISM AND NUTRITION
Our clinic is run by endocrinologists with more than 20 years of experience that have received special training in this field by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Our endocrinologistS also haVE experience in Internal Medicine which makes us a better rounded endocrinologist.
In many clinics, you may feel like you are being rushed in and out by nurses and doctors. Our physicians purposefully limit the number of patients that they see per day so that they can afford to spend enough time with each patient. Our practice takes pride in the age-old medical tradition of talking with our patients (something that has unfortunately been fading in modern medicine). We like to have our patients understand their issues and allow them to ask questions and voice their concerns. Nothing makes us feel better than when we hear our patients say “You are the first doctor to take the time to explain what is going on with my hormones.”
Medical treatments these days can be time-consuming and expensive. We are very conscientious of this fact and work very hard NOT to order unnecessary and costly tests or recommend unproven and expensive treatments when we do not feel that they are likely to benefit our patients. Our physicians will help you understand which hormone treatments are worth your hard-earned money and which are not. Additionally, we take pride in the fact that patients’ management is completely independent of the pharmaceutical industry and we are focus exclusively on the our patient’s best interest!.We do our very best in this age of increasing health care expenses to be mindful of the cost of our care to our patients.
Our physicians are active members of many highly-respected endocrine organizations. This allows our practice to stay current on all of the most recent advances in our field. This also means that our physicians practice endocrinology with a 21st century approach- which is evidence and research-based and focused on treating our patients with the best science that medicine has to offer.
