University Diabetes and Endocrine Specialists
We provide quality care in the areas of Diabetes, Endocrinology, Thyroid and Osteoporosis Treatment
University Diabetes and Endocrine Specialists was founded in 2004 by Dr. Sujatha Srikanth who is board-certified in Endocrinology. This specialty practice became a University Center of Excellence in January of 2017. All providers and the care team are highly skilled and knowledgeable in treating disorders of the endocrine system.
University Diabetes and Endocrine Specialists was recently named an accredited diabetes education program by the American Association of Diabetes Educators. This will allow residents in and around the greater Central Valley increased access to critical diabetes education services.
We provide care in the following areas:
- Diabetes Management
- Weight Management
- Thyroid Treatment
- Nutritional Counseling
Ultrasounds and Bone Density (DEXA) screenings are conducted on site by our qualified CRT and RDMS technician. Fine Needle Biopsies are also performed on site by our qualified physicians.
Since we have an affiliation with UCSF, all our physicians are faculty who treat patients, conduct research and teach the next generation of specialists. Approximately 40% of all physicians remain and practice medicine in the area once they have completed their residency training. This is a significant resource in our community as we are bringing the expertise of UCSF to Fresno, and creating more qualified physicians for the Central Valley.
Medical Nutrition Therapy and Medical Weight Management
We offer medical weight management, nutritional counseling, and educational classes as a part of our comprehensive program to treat diabetes and obesity related diseases. Our RDN (Registered Dietitian Nutritionist) and CDE (Certified Diabetes Educator) works closely with patients to manage their weight and blood glucose levels through proper nutrition and change in life style. Our RDN has over 20 years of experience in nutrition counseling.
