What is an Endocrinologist?
This doctor has received not only a Medical Doctor degree but also special training (Residency) in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, as well as more training (Fellowship) in Adult and Pediatric Endocrinology.
I've been told I need a thyroid biopsy; does it hurt?
In that instance, we place a small needle (smaller than the needle they use to draw blood from your arm) into the thyroid under ultrasound guidance. There is some discomfort, but most patients tolerate it very well.
