Jamaica Hospital would like to introduce you to our new Endocrinologist, Dr. Bijal Patel
Dr. Patel completed her residency within the MediSys Health Network, at Flushing Hospital Medical Center. She enjoyed the network’s dedication and working with the staff so much that she decided to join Jamaica Hospital as a full-time attending physician earlier this year.
As an endocrinologist, Dr. Patel provides a wide variety of services for patients in need of help with:
- Osteoporosis and other bone disorders
- Thyroid cancer and related conditions
- Transgender hormone therapy
- Adrenal and pituitary disease
While she is well qualified to help her patients with any of the above, Dr. Patel is most passionate about is treating individuals living with diabetes. Dr. Patel states “There is a very strong need in the community for treatment of the disease. The disease is extremely prevalent in the areas Jamaica Hospital serves. In addition, many others are living with undiagnosed and untreated diabetes.”
One of the ways Dr. Patel has helped her patients is utilizing the latest technology to help them better manage their diabetes. She is aware of many new advances and has incorporated them into her patient’s treatment plan.
She is extremely happy to join the Division of Endocrinology at Jamaica Hospital and work with such a strong team of doctors. She feels that together they are building a much-needed service that can greatly benefit the community.
