Tenet Florida Physician Services has a team of endocrinologists who diagnose and treat disorders of the eight major glands that make up the endocrine system –thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, ovaries, testes, adrenal, pituitary and hypothalamus.
These glands make hormones that control metabolism, reproduction, and growth and development. Our expert physicians care for patients with a variety of endocrine-related diseases with the goal of helping each patient return to good health by restoring hormones to their normal levels.
Endocrinologists treat many conditions linked to hormone imbalance including:
Weight problems due to metabolic disorders
Cancer of the endocrine system
When to See an Endocrinologist?
Your primary care physician may work with you on managing your endocrine-related health issue or he or she may refer you to an endocrinologist who is specially trained in the intricate endocrine system. The most common endocrine disease in the U.S. is diabetes, a metabolism disorder. Over time, diabetes can damage your eyes, kidneys and nerves and can cause heart disease, stroke or the loss of a limb.
Tenet Florida Physician Services endocrinologists are joined by a highly trained and experienced clinical staff to treat a wide range of endocrine system disorders and diseases. We look forward to working with you and your physician as part of your healthcare team.
