Our endocrinologists focus specifically on treating disorders associated with endocrine glands and their hormones. A proper hormonal balance is critical to many bodily functions such as reproduction, growth, metabolism, and mood.
Our dedicated endocrinologists are experts at diagnosing and treating hormonal imbalances, with a keen focus on caring for you. Symptoms of a potential hormone problem include excessive thirst, frequent urination, fatigue, unexplained weight gain or loss, and sudden vision changes. You may be referred to an endocrinologist for any of the following conditions:

When preparing for a visit with an ELNA Medical endocrinologist, be sure to track your symptoms carefully. Also, bring your provincial health care card, a list of prescription and non-prescription medications you are taking, as well as any questions you may have.
