Endocrinology

If you have diabetes or another endocrine disorder, you don't have to leave Astoria to get exceptional care.

Columbia Memorial Hospital is home to a board-certified endocrinologist who specializes in treating and managing problems that affect the endocrine system, which is made up of organs like the pancreas, thyroid and other organs that respond to, modify or metabolize hormones.

Our endocrinologist will give you the education and information you need to thrive. This may include medications, help with lifestyle changes, and referrals to other specialists and programs. We're your partners in health care, and we're committed to be there for you throughout your health journey.
