Why Einstein Endocrinology?

Collaborative, Comprehensive Care

Family and internal medicine physicians frequently refer to endocrinology when patients have diabetes, thyroid conditions, osteoporosis and other special health needs. Einstein endocrinologists also frequently collaborate with other departments and support a variety of inpatient services – from heart surgeries to bariatric surgery to transplants. Surgical and overall health outcomes are better when patients’ blood sugar and other chronic endocrinological conditions are under control.

Our endocrinologists collaborate directly with radiology, pathology and surgery to diagnose and treat a variety of endocrinological conditions – like those affecting the thyroid, parathyroid and other glands – guiding diagnostic tests and treatment procedures and providing all pre-surgical evaluations and post-surgical care.

Extensive Expertise

Endocrinology is a complex specialty, and our physicians are experienced treating patients with a variety of conditions affecting various organs and metabolic processes – from pituitary and adrenal gland problems, to calcium metabolism and bone issues, to diabetes and thyroid conditions. Our endocrinologists treat patients with conditions that may be congenital, genetic or developing over time; the result of acute inflammatory processes or chronic autoimmune issues; and those that occur on their own or overlap with rheumatologic disease.

A Patient-Centered Perspective

Einstein endocrinology patients regularly say our specialists listen to all of their concerns and truly care about their health and well-being. Our endocrinologists want to know we can take care of our patients, so they evaluate each person’s overall health, taking note of all effects and complications of endocrinological conditions, treatments, and coexisting conditions affecting the cardiovascular system, kidneys and more. Endocrinologists work with the patient and other specialists to find the right treatments and offer counseling for diet and lifestyle modifications that promote better overall health and outcomes.

Advice for a Healthier Life

While our endocrinologists are not the final specialists who will help most patients dealing with infertility, our specialists are often the first to evaluate both men and women having reproductive issues. Our endocrinologists conduct hormonal evaluations, help treat conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and refer patients to OB/GYN s and infertility specialists.
