Services You Didn’t Know You Needed
More than Just Diabetes
Dexa Scanning for Osteoporosis
We do our DEXA testing in the office to detect and treat osteoporosis. If you would like to have a DEXA test done, please discuss with one of the endocrinologists.
We have a GREAT dietitian in our offices that will go over diabetes, weight loss, diabetes prevention, and other special dietary needs.
The way we approach it is to rule out disorders that cause weight gain, then we have medications for weight loss and also have a weight loss program available that includes a dietitian, physical trainer, and a therapist.
We also do our own biopsies. If you have a nodule or mass in the thyroid that needs to be biopsied, we do them in the office as well. No need to go to the radiology department in the hospital.
Intima Media Thickness (IMT) measures the thickness of the innermost lining of your arteries and it is used as a predictor of vascular disease, heart attacks, and strokes. We do them in the office in Houston and will be doing them at Katy office shortly.
We are an ADA (American Diabetes Association) approved site for diabetes education. We have two educators that offer the classes at both offices, in Katy and Houston.
