Professor of Medicine

Areas of Interest

Inpatient management of endocrine and metabolic disorders; endocrine emergencies; adrenal disorders.


Managing inpatient disorders of endocrinology and metabolism has changed dramatically in the last two decades. Sicker patients and shortened length of stays have demanded accelerated treatment strategies to control metabolic parameters. It has been my privilege to participate and teach in the new sub-speciality of Inpatient Endocrinology.
