Dr. Shastry's Care Philosophy

An interest in preventive medicine was what led Savitha Shastry, MD, to become an adult endocrinologist. "I really enjoy helping patients get their health issues under control before any complications arise or they develop other medical conditions. "Endocrinology is the study of hormones, and the majority of people I see have diabetes, problems with their thyroid or metabolism, and occasionally certain rare conditions associated with the pituitary and the adrenal glands. "There are not many procedures involved in endocrinology. It's a process of getting to know one another, adjusting medications and providing guidance so that people can live healthier lives and become successful in their goals. That's what makes my job rewarding and why I love what I do."
