In today’s episode of the podcast, I interview Dr. Rocio Salas-Whalen, owner of New York Endocrinology on Park Avenue. Dr. Salas-Whalen has deep expertise in diabetes, metabolism, obesity, thyroid abnormalities and other endocrine disorders. She completed her internal medicine residency at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and her endocrinology fellowship at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore. Additionally, she was a research fellow at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and is board certified in Obesity Medicine.
