The endocrine system is the collection of glands that produce hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep and mood, among other things. Common health conditions related to the endocrine system include diabetes and thyroid disorders.
We diagnose, treat, and provide ongoing care for a full range of areas including:
- Continuous Glucose Monitoring
- Insulin Pump Therapy
- Thyroid disease
- Over and under production of hormones
- Thyroid cancer
- Thyroid nodules
- PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)
- Transgender care
- Adrenal insufficiency
- Pituitary tumors
- Neuroendocrine tumors
Dr. Madeline Jones-Ryan
My focus is caring for the whole person – mind and body – versus just the disease. Using my background and training, I work my patients to develop successful strategies that take into account various aspects of their life.
My specialty is treating endocrine issues. This includes conditions such as:
- Thyroid – cancer, nodules, hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism
- Transgender care
- Adrenal gland disorders
- Pituitary disorders
- Osteoporosis, parathyroid
As a person with type 1 diabetes, I have a special interest helping patients live with diabetes. I am a big proponent of diabetes technology and how new advances in this area can improve the health and lifestyle for my patients. This includes pumps, continuous glucose monitors and other technology.

“My husband and I were passing though on our way east to see family when my appendix ruptured. Luckily the hospital was a few miles away from our campground. The staff was very caring and attentive. I feel very fortunate that we were so close to this small, but wonderful hospital.”
