Endocrinology

Pentucket Medical’s board certified endocrinologists diagnose and treat a wide range of common as well as unusual disorders and dysfunctions of the endocrine system. Endocrinologists most often see patients who have some kind of hormonal imbalance or dysfunction.

Endocrinology involves caring for the person as well as the disease. Most endocrine disorders are chronic diseases that need life-long care. Some of the most common endocrine diseases include diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism and metabolic syndrome.

Pentucket Medical’s endocrinologists help patients manage glandular illnesses including: diabetes, thyroid, adrenal, pituitary, bone metabolism and reproductive disorders.

Endocrinology Services Offered to Patients in Haverhill, Riverwalk, and Newburyport, MA

  • on-site testing of bone density
  • blood glucose levels
  • hemoglobin A1c
  • ultrasound
  • CT scan
  • MRI scan
  • thyroid biopsy

Our endocrinologists work with primary care clinicians  and other specialists as indicated by the patient’s needs.

At Pentucket Medical, we believe the physician-patient relationship can be an important therapeutic process. In all cases, the patient’s primary care provider remains the ‘leader’ of the patient’s healthcare team.

Appointments with our endocrinologists are generally coordinated through their primary care provider.

Mass General Brigham community practices are here for you during these challenging times, and our staff are available in the office for most appointment types. Virtual visits by smartphone, computer, with webcam, or telephone are now available for urgent appointments.
