More information about Woodbury Endocrinology and Diabetes Clinic
Woodbury Endocrinology and Diabetes Clinic offers specialty care services in common disorders of the endocrine system, such a diabetes mellitus, thyroid, and parathyroid gland conditions, as well as pituitary and adrenal gland disorders. Osteoporosis and low testosterone in men are also medical problems commonly treated by our endocrinologist, Dr. Alfonso.
Dr. Alfonso is a board-certified endocrinologist with many years of experience. He can help manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life. As an osteopathic physician (D.O.), he understands the importance of treating the whole patient and not just the disease. Dr. Alfonso appreciates you are an individual with a busy life and many responsibilities. He knows you are a human being like the rest of us who happens to have an endocrine condition (e.g. diabetes, thyroid problem), but you are not the disease and your disease does not define you. Dr. Alfonso and his dedicated staff at Woodbury Endocrinology and Diabetes Clinic will guide you and provide you with the tools you need to coexist with your endocrine condition.
Unfortunately, for most endocrine disorders, there is no cure. However, with advances in medical science and technology, we can provide you with effective treatments to manage your disease and improve your quality of life. We’ve come a long way! For example, a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes was a death sentence just 100 years ago. Nowadays, type 1 diabetes is a chronic disease with many effective treatment modalities and many patients live active and fulfilling lives.

Dr. Alfonso focuses on certain areas of endocrinology. He specifically treats the following medical conditions: diabetes mellitus (type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes), thyroid disorders (hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, thyroid nodules, thyroid cancer), hyperparathyroidism, tumors of the pituitary gland, adrenal insufficiency and adrenal adenomas, osteoporosis, and low testosterone in men.
Although you may self-refer for a consultation with Dr. Alfonso (as allowed by your healthcare plan), all consultation requests are screened to determine if they fall within Dr. Alfonso’s focus areas.
Dr. Alfonso is a board-certified endocrinologist who did his fellowship training at the renowned Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC. He is a long-standing member of the Endocrine Society and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinology (AACE). Dr. Alfonso practices evidence-based medicine. He does not practice alternative medicine. Dr. Alfonso follows professional society clinical practice guidelines.
Dr. Alfonso will work individually with each of his patients and together decide on a treatment plan that best fits a patient’s needs, lifestyle, financial constraints, and personal preference. However, Dr. Alfonso will not treat patients solely based on symptoms while ignoring relevant laboratory or radiological test results that are critical to the patient’s overall wellbeing.
Dr. Alfonso encourages you to be involved in your own medical care. He will be happy to provide you with educational information from trusted and reputable sources. He also encourages you to become familiar with all aspects of your specific medical condition, and to get a second opinion when needed.
