Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Richardson ""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"
