Endocrinology

Southwest Endocrinology (SWENDO) is now a Lovelace Medical Group clinic. Lisa Ereifej, MD, will be practicing at the current building beginning in August 2017. Lovelace Medical Group has two other endocrinologists at the new Lovelace Medical Group location at Jefferson and Osuna: Anita Garcia Sloan, MD and Mohsen Tabrizi, MD. For help or if any questions, please call us at (505)727-8000

Our endocrinologists are specially trained physicians who diagnose diseases related to the glands. The diseases they are trained to treat often affect other parts of the body beyond glands. 

The glands in a person's body release hormones. Our endocrinologists treat people who suffer from hormonal imbalances, typically from glands in the endocrine system. The overall goal of treatment is to restore the normal balance of hormones found in a patient's body. Some of the more common conditions treated by our endocrinologists include:

  • Diabetes
  • Menopause
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Lack of growth
  • Osteoporosis 
  • Thyroid diseases
  •  Cancers of the endocrine glands
  • Over- or under-production of hormones
  • Cholesterol disorders
  • Hypertension
  • Infertility
