Endocrinolgy

Jameson brings top notch physicians and talented staff specialized in disorders of the metabolic and endocrine systems. We offer a full spectrum of services bringing expertise in diagnosis and treatment of these disorders conveniently to our community. 

The Jameson Endocrinology Department will consult you and help you to manage, maintain and improve the following metabolic and endocrine system disorders:

Diabetes

  • Type 1
  • Type 2
  • Gestational Diabetes
  • Increased Risk of Diabetes
    • Borderline
    • Pre-Diabetes
  • Reactive Hypoglycemia

As a diabetic, in addition to close treatment from your primary care physician (or OB/GYN in the case of gestational diabetes), you may also consider seeing an endocrinologist to help you manage and improve your numbers – and your overall health. The endocrinologists on staff at Jameson will communicate with your PCP keeping him or her in the loop about any medication adjustments or changes to your care plan. 

Jameson’s endocrinologist, Dr. Dana Vucinich, and Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner (CRNP), Susan Acker, will work with you to aggressively manager your diabetes. You will receive extensive counseling, flexible treatment options and frequent contact to promote behavior changes and promote support during the transition to optimal blood sugar control.
