About Endocrinology

All organs in the human body communicate via chemical messages. These messages are called hormones, and the medical specialty that studies this communication is called Endocrinology.

Endocrinologists believe that all organs in the body are endocrine organs, some are known and others are unknown. Known endocrine organs include pituitary gland, thyroid & parathyroid glands, pancreas, adrenal glands, ovaries and testis.

FHP's Endocrinology department was established in October 2016 with the addition of Dr. Muhammad Ahmed. 

We specialize in the management of diabetes, metabolism, and hormone conditions. Our approach is non judgmental, our treatment is individualized, and we believe in putting your health first.
