About

Bio

As a Board Certified Endocrinologist, Certified Diabetes Educator and Board Certified Physician Nutrition Specialist, I have many areas in which I am knowledgeable and in which I work to stay informed.I am a Diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine. I have expertise in diabetes, nutrition, thyroid, pituitary, and adrenal gland conditions, and male and female hormones. Osteoporosis, a common condition that increases the chance of suffering a fracture (breaking a bone) is another area of focus. Additional areas of my expertise include weight control, blood pressure and cholesterol and how to prevent kidney stones. http://www.drdanshealthandhormones.com/ http://www.yourdiabetes.net/

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
