Diabetes, Thyroid and Endocrinology
Endocrinologists specialize in hormonal and metabolic disorders affecting both men and women. These disorders include diabetes mellitus, both insulin requiring and non-insulin requiring, thyroid abnormalities, pituitary, adrenal, and other endocrine gland problems.
Our goal is to provide excellent health care that is cost effective and allows patients to enjoy full and productive lives while managing their chronic conditions. Our approach is evidence-driven treatments that are proven to be safe and effective.
Dr. Shipman’s practice is limited to the specialty of endocrine disorders in adults; therefore, it is best that patients be referred to her on advice of their physician for treatment of hormonal and metabolic conditions only. Patients will continue their relationship with their primary care doctor for other health problems.
We are pleased to have Ms. Tiffanie Villasana MS, PA-C, as Dr. Shipman’s Physician Assistant. Ms. Villasana has been practicing Endocrinology since 2006 and joined Village Medical Group in 2007. Abiding by standards of the Texas Medical Board, Ms. Villasana also participates in the management of adult endocrine disorders.
