Accent Endocrinology

Welcome to the Thyroid Center at Accent Endocrinology in Gainesville, Florida!

At Accent Endocrinology’s Thyroid Center, our goal is to provide you with an individualized, state of the art assessment of your thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is a key component of the Endocrine System. It is located in the front of your neck, just below the thyroid cartilage; the thyroid cartilage is known commonly as the Adam’s apple. The thyroid gland is a factory that produces thyroid hormone, which then travels through the blood stream to signal different parts of your body. The thyroid gland can develop structural problems, such as overall enlargement (called a goiter) or growths within the gland called nodules. The thyroid can also have functional problems, such as under-activity (hypothyroidism) or over-activity (hyperthyroidism). There are many tests that an Endocrinologist may use to identify and treat a thyroid problem. These tests include blood-work, imaging tests such as a Neck Ultrasound, nuclear medicine tests, and sometimes Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) biopsies.

We are confident that our team of Endocrine and ENT physicians will provide you with the most up to date treatments available for your thyroid problem. Each of our Endocrinologists is Fellowship trained, with expertise in real-time bedside Ultrasound examinations of the thyroid gland. We perform Ultrasound Guided Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) of the thyroid, and are able to examine your sample immediately for specimen adequacy. Some individuals may warrant surgical treatment. If needed, we can quickly refer you to an experienced thyroid surgeon and coordinate personally with the surgeon to optimize your care.

Thyroid Ultrasound - A lump or abnormal growth in the thyroid gland is called thyroid nodule. At Accent Endocrinology, we offer thyroid nodule ultrasound, a simple and painless technology, that uses harmless sound wave technology (no radiation exposure) to generate images of the thyroid and surrounding structures. Thyroid nodules and cysts are measured and detailed descriptions of their characteristics are recorded. For thyroid cancer patients, we perform a review of the surrounding lymph nodes to help determine if the cancer has spread to these lymph nodes. Our exams are performed by our thyroid specialists and endocrinologists. This allows immediate evaluation, interpretation, and discussion with the patient incorporating the patient's clinical situation.
