What is endocrinology and medical aesthetics?

Endocrinology and Medical Aesthetics covers all things hormonal and skin. From stubborn weight gain and wrinkles, to erectile dysfunction and diabetes. Multiple glands in the body are responsible for accurately secreting hormones at the proper time. When one or more glands is not properly functioning, symptoms can range anywhere from minor to extreme. Endocrinology is the investigatory branch of medicine that dives into the "why" of hormonal imbalances.

What does it look like to work with an Endocrinology and Medical Aesthetics Physician?

The world is your oyster. Most initial consultations include subjective and objective findings to gain insight on the cause of your ailments. This typically includes weight assessment, blood pressure and blood sugar readings, and necessary lab work.

Follow-up appointments will be tailored to your needs. For example, weight loss programs can include B12 injections or may be geared more towards blood sugar regulating depending on your physician's findings. Hormonal cases can include hormone therapy or simple lifestyle modifications depending on your physician's findings. Regardless of the tailored track, our physician is on your side!
