  • Thyroid Ultrasound and Ultrasound Guided Thyroid Biopsy: The thyroid ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging technology that permits thyroid exploration without the use of radiation. It is painless and can be done in the office. A plastic probe sweeps the skin surface to look at the thyroid gland. The doctor can use the ultrasound to guide a needle inside a thyroid nodule and increase the accuracy of the thyroid biopsy.
  • A1C Results at Your Visit: The A1C test is a blood test that provides information about a person’s average levels of blood glucose over the past 3 months. The A1C test is sometimes called the hemoglobin A1c, HbA1c, or glycohemoglobin test. It is the primary test used for diabetes management.
  • Continuous Glucose Monitoring System: A blood glucose meter only provides a brief “snapshot” of your glucose level at a single moment in time. A CGM device gives you a greater view of your glucose with trends. CGM provides you with direction your glucose levels are going, early notification of oncoming lows and highs, alerts during sleep, as well as insights into how food, physical activity, medication and illness impact your diabetes.
  • Diabetes Education Classes:
  • Laboratory Services: We have an onsite laboratory to perform most standard tests for our Thyroid and Diabetes patients. Your test results will be available to the physician at the time of your visit to allow him to make changes in therapy if necessary.
  • Research Clinical Trials: Our physicians conduct pharmaceutical clinical research trials on site.  The studies typically involve new medications being developed for the treatment of Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.  Participating patients benefit by receiving medications, labwork, and testing supplies without cost.  If you are interested in seeing if you qualify for a trial, please let us know that you have an interest.
