"Pearls From - Andrew Stewart, MD" - Kristen Monaco
As of late, the number of practicing endocrinologists seems to be dwindling. Andrew Stewart, MD, director of the diabetes, obesity and metabolism institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, addresses why this is – from primary care physicians taking over diabetes care to the pressures from lack of compensation and reimbursement – and what can be done to remedy it. “Diabetes is becoming much more common than it was, say, 20 years ago when physician workforce planning processes were in place. No one anticipated diabetes would take off the way that it has, so that’s one thing,” said Dr. Stewart.
