"I have always been fascinated by physiology and biochemistry, which is the foundation of much of the understanding of endocrine science. Endocrine offers a wide range of challenging and interesting medical problems, which lend themselves to logical solutions. The epidemic of Diabetes Mellitus (DM) and obesity offers a unique interest to me as it places a heavy burden on our community. This has inspired me to focus on ways in which I can be a vital part in defending against its progression. I read avidly on the science of advancing technologies and therapies of both DM and Obesity Care. Finally, I believe my patients should leave my visits with a greater understanding regarding their disease process so they may better function in the central role they play in achieving their treatment goals." - Dr. Christy Richardson
