Endocrinology Associates Has Your Body’s Manual

If you’ve ever struggled with your body despite your best efforts, you’re not alone. Many chronic problems people deal with, like obesity and hormone imbalances, are affected by your metabolism. This makes your diet, nutritional needs, and lifestyle an important part of properly treating these conditions. At Endocrinology Associates, under the guidance of veteran endocrinologist Dr. Christofides, we take a disciplined, holistic approach to your care that is fully adapted to your needs.

Get the benefit of our professional expertise in the comfort and convenience of your own home! Our digital consulting services and patient appointments are accessible by computer and smartphone, allowing us to provide our expertise without an in-office visit.

Our Services

With our experts on your side, you have access to a wide spectrum of care that can balance your bodily processes that includes, but is not limited to, hormone therapy, diabetes management, obesity management, fatigue, and more. We have the tech and expertise to figure out what is out of balance and how to restore everything back to proper working order, as well as understand your symptoms — at Endocrinology Associates, we provide you with the manual to your body you wish you always had, so you can make the changes you need to enjoy optimal long-term health.

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

Bioidentical hormones are indistinguishable from the hormones your body naturally produces and can be used to restore diminished hormone levels that can cause disruptive symptoms. The custom therapy plans we create put your health first and restore your hormones to healthier balances, so you can go about your day energized and symptom-free.

Insulin Pump Training & Management

Don’t be intimidated by your diabetes! We will make managing your insulin pump a hassle-free process, so you can feel confident in your care and take back ownership of your body.

Diabetes Management

Managing diabetes is a comprehensive process, and we have the expertise and perspective to help you live a healthy lifestyle despite your diabetes. Our approach is holistic, too — which means adapting a complete and comprehensive routine that includes diet, exercise, and other lifestyle concerns.

Lipid Management

High cholesterol presents its own challenges to your bodily processes, which lipid management programs are designed specifically to address. Our research, plus Dr. Christofides’ deep expertise in diabetes and weight management, positions Endocrinology Associates to provide unique insight into how to handle your high triglyceride or low HDL levels.

Compassionate Transgender Care

Our team is mindful of the journey you are on, and we prioritize empathy and understanding for all patients seeking gender-affirming care. We will help you stay healthy while navigating the new changes your body will experience — all the while giving you the respect and emotional support you deserve.

Growth Hormone Screening

These straightforward blood tests check if your body is producing the correct amount of growth hormone (GH), which plays an important role in human development, especially for children. We’re proactive about identifying any imbalances to ensure proper growth and overall health.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

This medication helps replace estrogen that the body stops making during menopause, which can reduce menopausal symptoms and lower the risk of post-menopause issues like bone loss.

Thyroid Ultrasound & Biopsy

The goal of a biopsy is to remove a tissue sample to identify abnormalities, and the ultrasound lets your physician collect the sample with extreme precision. This test allows us to identify potential issues such as tumors, cysts, or goiters of the thyroid.


We believe that improving energy and vitality starts with targeting what’s missing. Our team pinpoints what is causing your fatigue — whether it’s low hormone levels, an improperly functioning thyroid, or lifestyle choices — and bring your body back in balance.

Obesity Management

Eat more calories than you burn, and you will gain weight — while generally true, people often resort to drastic, unsustainable solutions that can result in poor health, frustration, and feelings of helplessness. Our team has seen it all and knows how to implement healthy practices that stick.

Optimized Nutrition & Wellness

If you’ve ever looked at the label on a multivitamin, then you know there is an optimal amount of nutrition that you need every day to function at your best — but that can vary from body to body. Our team will balance your diet, so it properly supports your metabolism, hobbies, and lifestyle.

Personal Fitness & Wellness

Finding your optimal wellness plan is about determining the healthiest routine that you have the free time and willpower to manage. Our bodies affect our individual needs, too — a quality plan should consider hormones, metabolism, physical difficulties, etc. We will help you craft a routine you feel comfortable following that maximizes your health.

CGM Nutrition

Useful for patients with diabetes, continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) uses a device to track your blood sugar levels to map your eating habits and encourage a healthier, more regulated diet. With real-time updates on your body, we will help you optimize your glycemic function by spotting trends and gently adjusting your diet accordingly.

Genetic Expertise

Many metabolic disorders often stem from a person’s genetics. The genetic services we provide give us important information about you that can be used to predict and prevent disease, tailor medications, and better understand complex diagnoses.

Advanced Genetic Testing

We can use genetic testing to diagnose hormonal imbalances, possible medication side effects, or conditions like aneuploidy and multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN). Your physician may order this test to better understand your body and apply the appropriate treatment.

Personalized Genomic Counseling

Our individual genetic makeup has clues about how our bodies will develop over our lifetime. At Endocrinology Associates, we offer personalized genomic counseling to better understand your body. This allows us to determine your needs and identify potential disease risks — and most importantly, map out a new lifestyle that is both proactive and preventative.
