We offer the region's most extensive Endocrine services
WHAT IS ENDOCRINOLOGY?
Endocrinology is the study of glands that make hormones and the problems associated with these glands.
WHAT DISEASES DO WE TREAT?
The most common endocrine problems are diabetes and thyroid disease. However we also take care of patients with osteoporosis, pituitary and adrenal dysfunction as well as some types of ovarian and testicular problems.
We treat all types of diabetes in adult patients. We also have a certified diabetes educator on staff to help with patient education and management. We download most major glucose meters. We provide insulin pump initiation and management as well as continuous glucose monitoring to appropriate patients. We are the only site in Northern Nevada to offer in-office diabetic peripheral and autonomic nerve testing, as well as peripheral artery testing. In-office hemoglobin A1C readings are also available.
We treat hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, thyroid nodules and cancer. Thyroid ultrasound is done in the office to monitor nodules, goiters and thyroid cancer. Fine needle biopsies of nodules are performed with ultrasound guidance in the office with a pathologist on site to make sure the samples are adequate.
