We are experts in Diabetes, Thyroid, Osteoporosis, Weight loss and Hormonal conditions. Our solutions are personalized, focused on you and your success.

We’re Open – Seeing Current and New Patients – See Below

At Texas Diabetes and Endocrinology, we continue to be committed to the health and well-being of our patients and staff during this unprecedented time. Due to the increase of COVID-19 infection rates in our community, we want to keep you informed of how TD&E is proceeding at this time.

Effective November 30, 2020, we will be temporarily changing how we conduct our visits. To reduce exposure & traffic into our clinics, ONLY the following appointment types will be seen in-person:


  • Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (CGMS) Insertions
  • CIMT (Carotid Intima-Meda Thickness Test)
  • Endocrine Testing (Cortrosyn Stimulation Test, Saline Suppression, Etc.)
  • Fibroscans
  • Injections
  • Thyroid Nodule Biopsies
  • Thyroid Ultrasounds
  • New Patient Consultations

ALL other appointments that are currently scheduled through December 31, 2020 will be converted to a telemedicine visit.


A telemedicine visit with us is easy and convenient. You’ll have a chance to speak with your doctor or advanced practice provider in the comfort and safety of your own home over a secure video chat on your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer. You do not need to enroll in any special service or pay anything beyond your normal co-payment, coinsurance, and deductible. Note: Insurance coverage for telemedicine is impacted by federal and state laws as well as insurance company policies. You should check with your insurer regarding how telemedicine is covered under your particular policy.

In line with the CDC’s guidance on social distancing and self-quarantining, we do not want you to leave your house or be in a group setting if it’s not necessary. We do, however, want to get you the care you need, when you need it. Whether Endocrine related or otherwise, we encourage you to not ignore your physical symptoms and health concerns, and to continue to take your medication as prescribed. Our commitment to compassionate, personalized care remains unchanged.

If you have any questions about your appointment or are needing to schedule one, please contact our office at 512-458-8400. Due to an influx of phone calls, you may experience longer hold times. We are encouraging ALL patients to submit any non-emergency medial questions through your MyTDE Patient Portal. If you are needing a prescription refill, please contact your pharmacy directly to submit a refill request. If you do not already have an appointment scheduled, but are needing one, please fill out our online appointment request by visiting our website at www.texasdiabetes.com or emailing us at referrals@texasdiabetes.com .

PLEASE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO YOUR APPOINTMENT REMINDERS – We are asking all patients to register before your scheduled appointment. Please read the instructions thoroughly as you pre-register. You may also check out our COVID-19 Update page here to learn how you can best prepare for your visit. 

Call us Monday-Friday: 8:30am-12:30pm, 1:30pm-4:30pm

Masters In Hypothyroidism Treatment

At Texas Diabetes & Endocrinology, our board-certified physicians are experts in all Thyroid conditions and offer the latest treatments available. Common conditions that we see are Hypothyroidism, Hyperthyroidism, Thyroid nodules and Thyroid cancer. While these diagnoses can be concerning, rest assured that they are all treatable. Most thyroid nodules are benign and do not require surgical intervention. If a nodule is found, we offer a prompt and accurate evaluation to determine a treatment plan. Thyroid ultrasounds are a mainstay in the management of Thyroid nodules and Thyroid cancer. We are a full-service clinic. Thyroid ultrasounds and biopsies are done on-site, in an outpatient setting for your comfort and convenience.

Managed Weight Loss Programs

At Texas Diabetes & Endocrinology, we are committed to helping people gain better control of their health. Weight loss will not only positively affect the way a person feels, but can lead to improved diabetes, cholesterol and blood pressure management. In particular, people with diabetes can reduce their need for blood sugar medication, including insulin, by losing weight. After evaluating many weight loss systems, we chose the Ideal Protein diet to be the core of our program. While following the Ideal Protein protocol, a person's pancreas will get a well-deserved break by limiting simple and complex carbs until their weight loss goal is achieved. The program is medically designed, containing two key components – sensible weight loss and sustainable, stable weight maintenance.
