Endocrinology services

At our practice we have access to state of the art laboratory and imaging modalities (conventional radiology, MRI and nuclear medicine scanning) that allow for the diagnosis and management of an array of complex hormone diseases.

Disorders in endocrinology are usually due to hormone excess or deficiency involving one ore more of the endocrine glands in the body.

As a new patient to the practice, you will be thoroughly assessed for the presenting problems with in-house access to stress-electrocardiography and lung function testing if indicated. Necessary biochemical testing will follow with imaging planned when needed. This will genererally be followed up by a consultation focussed on discussing the results and formulating a treament plan.
