The patients that I see come for disease management or wellness. And the endocrine conditions that we manage are related to thyroid, adrenal, pituitary, pancreas or female or male hormone disorders. Our passion is prevention of heart disease and diabetes.
We are advisors for the patient. And the patient is managing their condition. We always hope that we are helpers for the patient, but the patient is the boss.
