Why St. Joseph Hospital

When you need care from highly-trained, compassionate endocrinology specialists, you can depend on St. Joseph Hospital for the quality of care you need and deserve. St. Joseph Hospital’s endocrinology team includes some of the most acclaimed endocrine specialists in New Hampshire. In addition, several of our physicians have an Endocrine Certification in Neck Ultrasound (ECNU) from the American College of Endocrinology. This special certification requires documentation of adequate teaching, experience and demonstration of proficiency in ultrasound and biopsy.

Endocrinology encompasses the care and treatment of hormone-producing glands that regulate metabolism, growth and development, reproduction, sleep, mood and more. The body’s endocrine system includes the pancreas, the thyroid, parathyroid, pineal, hypothalamus, adrenal and pituitary glands, ovaries, testes and other organs which respond to, modify or metabolize hormones.

Within our Endocrinology Department, we have the Thyroid Center of New Hampshire, which is a comprehensive, full-service endocrine clinic providing expert thyroid care to both new and existing patients. Our two board-certified providers, Mikhail Signalov, DO, and Shellie Hafer, APRN, understand that conditions relating to the thyroid often affect many other systems throughout the body. That’s why we proudly offer our patients the guidance, treatment, and both short and long term condition management they need along with the convenience of high quality care.
