This content was provided by Dr. Tamler "Dr. Ronald Tamler, medical director of the Mount Sinai Clinical Diabetes Institute, is a board-certified endocrinologist, internist and diabetes educator.

Dr. Tamler particularly specializes in the endocrinology of men and has significant expertise in treating hypogonadism (low testosterone), male osteoporosis (brittle bones) and erectile dysfunction (impotence) and in advising on the use of nutritional supplements for hormonal diseases. He is an honorary police surgeon for the NYPD."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tamler "When it comes to treating diabetes, Dr. Tamler strongly believes in empowering the patient. Targets for blood sugar, lifestyle goals and treatment plans are customized and created together as a team. Dr. Tamler is also an early but judicious adopter of diabetes-related technology.

As for Men's Health, rather than simply prescribing testosterone, Dr. Tamler is interested in figuring out the underlying cause for the problems a patient may present with. "
