The University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism empowers people. Our mission is to encourage patients, caregivers and the community to understand the conditions for optimal health and discover treatment options when confronted with illness. Physicians within the division have developed programs using lifestyle modification that make weight loss and diabetes prevention achievable. Working one-on-one with patients, we stress the importance of treating high cholesterol and elevated blood pressure to lessen the risk for heart disease and stroke. Additionally, the endocrinology faculty members diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions affecting the thyroid, adrenal glands, pituitary gland, bones (including osteoporosis, calcium abnormalities and vitamin D deficiency) and metabolic diseases.

Diagnostic and therapeutic decisions are based on the most recent data from scientific studies. The physicians have completed subspecialty training in endocrinology and are American Board of Internal Medicine certified in endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism.

We educate at many levels including University of Florida medical students, physician assistant students, medical residents in this subspecialty and in the Department of Medicine as well as maintain an ACGME-accredited endocrinology fellowship program.

We invite you to explore our site to learn about the services we provide, as well as contact information, if you have further questions about our division.
