Penn State Hershey Endocrinology and Diabetes clinic is responsible for approximately 13,000 outpatient visits per year and serves as a major tertiary care referral resource for physicians in the twelve-county primary and secondary referral areas for Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. To facilitate service throughout central Pennsylvania, the Division has established satellite offices in Camp Hill and Harrisburg.
The inpatient consult service interacts frequently with patients and faculty of the Departments of Surgery, Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology and Radiology, particularly Nuclear Medicine. Approximately 2,500 consults are seen yearly. In this setting, consultants provide major expertise in the inpatient care of diabetic patients and in the care and evaluation of complex endocrine problems.
The major clinical problems include diabetes mellitus, pituitary tumors, hyper- and hypothyroidism, thyroid nodules, thyroid cancer, thyroiditis, hyper- and hypoadrenalism, amenorrhea, hyperprolactinemia, hirsutism, male hypogonadism and infertility, multiple endocrine neoplasia types I and II, and pheochromocytoma.
