Endocrinology

Our endocrinologist is Board Certified in Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism and Internal Medicine.  She works closely with a team including a registered dietician and clinical pharmacists.

We provide excellent care for adults with Endocrine conditions. The endocrine glands produce chemicals called hormones. These hormones are released into the blood stream and exert their action by stimulating other organs in the body. Endocrinologists specialize in the treatment of hormone based diseases.

We are open Monday- Friday 8AM-5PM

 

We offer treatment of endocrine disorders including:

  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid Disorders

Nephrology

The kidneys filter waste products and excess fluids from the blood.  The body cannot survive without the kidneys. Kidney Disease is a common complication of Diabetes and High Blood Pressure.

Early detection of kidney problems and aggressive treatment increase the likelihood that you can keep your kidneys healthy. The Kidney Health team at WesternU Health is dedicated to focusing on prevention. Meeting the goals for blood glucose and blood pressure control can prevent or at least slow the development and progression of kidney disease.

If kidney disease goes without treatment, the disease will progress through the stages, ending in kidney failure. Once the kidneys have reached end-stage kidney disease, dialysis (a method of removing wastes from the blood) or a kidney transplant must be performed to survive.

The Kidney Health team has implemented a team-based care model that includes a Nephrologist, Nurse Practitioner, Pharm. D, and a Registered Dietician.  By integrating the care of all these professionals, we have successfully put that patient at the center of their care.

    • Diabetes
    • High Blood Pressure
  • Rehabilitation after Acute Kidney Failure
  • Kidney Inflammatory conditions
