When people come to us for treatment for thyroid problems, they always want to know how those thyroid problems developed. Very often, they’ve done some research on their own.

At an endocrine and diabetes care center like Freeman Endocrinology, we deal with a wide range of issues relating to the thyroid.

One thing we find when people are referred to our clinic is that many people don’t even know what an endocrinologist does! It’s not a medical specialty that’s talked about in the media much, and we don’t get TV shows made about us.
