Whether you're looking for a diabetes doctor or a specialist who treats thyroid disease, you want the help of an expert who understands endocrinology and how your condition affects your life. At Astria Sunnyside Hospital, that's just what you’ll find.
Why you might need a endocrinologist—or hormone doctor
An endocrinologist treats diseases related to the glands and hormones. That's why they're sometimes known as "hormone doctors." To help you overcome a hormone imbalance, these specialists may recommend treatments such as lifestyle changes, medicines or surgery.
Properly diagnosing and treating a hormone disorder takes training and experience. Our endocrinology experts have both. They are here to help whether you have a common chronic disease or one most people have never heard of.
Here are some of the conditions we treat:

Whatever condition you have, our team will take the time to understand your needs and prescribe the treatment or treatments that will work best for you.
