Endocrinology is a sub-specialty within the field of internal medicine. Endocrinologists diagnose and treat diseases related to hormonal disorders such as diabetes, thyroid disease, adrenal and pituitary gland disorders, male and female hormonal disorders, and hyperlipidemia, among others. Call our office to make an appointment and we will be glad to help you.

Simon Williamson Clinic Diabetes Center is accredited by the American Association of Diabetes Educators.

We will be glad to help you become knowledgeable about managing problems and preventing complications in order to live with diabetes in the most satisfying and fulfilling way.

When you are referred by your SWC physician, you may be scheduled for an appointment with our Registered/Licensed Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator (R.D./L.D., C.D.E.), who will be available to help you learn more about diabetes. Some of the areas that may be addressed include:

  • which foods affect blood sugar and which foods do not
  • what to do if your blood sugar is too high or too low
  • how to take your diabetes medications and how they work
  • painless blood sugar testing and getting the supplies you need to test
  • target blood sugar and A1Cs
  • goals for exercise
  • general diabetes disease management and follow-up to help you meet your goals

Your physician may also refer you for help with losing weight.

"I have been an oncology patient at SWC for over 6 years. In no particular order I want to express my sincere thanks to the staff for the empathy, patience, and compassion they have selflessly extended to their patients during some of our most difficult days. What you do isn't easy nor is it taken for granted. It is a true calling that God placed on your hearts and I like so many others would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU! It's people like you that make it easier for people like me to keep fighting."
