BronxCare Health System


The Endocrinology team cares for patients with thyroid, pituitary, adrenal, reproductive, lipid, and electrolyte disorders, as well as Type I, Type II, and gestational diabetes. During the past two decades, extensive research has fostered the development of new drugs and advanced technological devices to control and effectively monitor diabetes.

BronxCare’s Diabetes Center of Excellence (as designated by the National Center for Quality Assurance) encompasses 17 clinical sites. Primary and Specialty care providers, as well as Certified Diabetes Educators and Nutritionists, offer a wide range of services. Under the guidance of Diana Malkin-Washeim, RD, Diabetes Health Coordinator, patients are encouraged to take a more active role in managing their disease to preserve their health, function, and quality of life.
