Patient Care Overview

The UNC Division of Endocrinology is dedicated to personalized evaluation and treatment of diabetes and other endocrine conditions, including thyroid, parathyroid, bone, pituitary, adrenal, and gonadal disorders. We also provide initial and ongoing care for individuals seeking gender-affirming hormone treatment. Each year, we staff more than 20,000 patient visits in our clinic at the UNC Eastowne Medical Office Building.

Faculty in our division are nationally recognized and published in the fields of diabetes and bone disease.

We offer specialized clinics in pituitary medicine, osteoporosis, parathyroid and bone disorders, and thyroid nodules. Our thyroid nodule clinic conveniently offers new patient evaluation and ultrasound-guided thyroid nodule biopsy the same day if needed. Our collaborative care model for people with diabetes includes comprehensive diabetes education, continuous glucose monitor (CGM) and insulin pump management, an on-site clinical pharmacist, and the opportunity to participate in research via our active clinical trials unit.

We partner closely with Departments of Surgery, Neurosurgery, and Radiology, and the Division of Oncology, in the treatment of thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, and pituitary tumors. Our endocrinologists conduct detailed pre-operative assessment, ensure timely referral, and collaborate in post-procedural care. We discuss complex cases in our monthly multi-disciplinary endocrine tumor and pituitary conferences.

We consider it a great privilege to serve as a leading academic endocrine practice for the people of North Carolina and for those around the country who seek our expertise.
