Endocrinology focuses on the system of glands and tissues within the body that secrete hormones into the bloodstream to regulate numerous functions. Endocrinologists treat diseases and disorders related to the endocrine system, such as diabetes, thyroid diseases and metabolic disorders, in addition to other hormone-based medical problems.
The diagnosis of endocrine diseases often relies on laboratory tests to a greater degree than many other specialties. Many endocrine disorders, such as diabetes, obesity, hypothyroidism, require long-term or life-long care. Our specialists understand the treatment of these chronic diseases require a collaborative, supportive physician-patient relationship to encourage patients to stay on track in managing their conditions.
Using advanced diagnostics and treatment techniques along with lifestyle and nutrition guidance, the Endocrinologists at Saint Vincent Medical Group work closely with patients to develop a detailed understanding of each patient’s unique needs and map out the best possible course of care.
Our Endocrinology practice can be found at the Worcester Medical Center location.
