We provide state of the art, non-surgical care of adult patients with disease processes that include: pituitary dysfunction, thyroid dysfunction, thyroid cancer, adrenal dysfunction, bone/mineral disease such as osteopenia and osteoporosis, and gonadal dysfunction. The Endocrinology clinic also provides metabolic testing for our patients and by referral. We also perform thyroid biopsies using ultrasound guidance. Patients with diabetes are seen by referral in the Diabetes Center of Excellence at Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center.
