Endocrinologist at Synergy Immediate Care

Dr. Pallavi Heda

Endocrinology is the branch of medicine that is concerned with endocrine glands and hormones.  Endocrinologists treat patients who suffer from hormonal imbalances, typically from glands in the endocrine system.  The overall goal is to restore a patient’s normal balance of hormones and provide treatment and management options.
