Endocrinology

You can expect our endocrinology services team to monitor your lab levels, blood sugars, and food intake to help you regain control of your symptoms. Fillmore County Hospital offers the latest technology including thyroid ultrasounds where we can monitor thyroid nodules. These images will be sent to Dr. Eiland for interpretation.

Initial appointments will be approximately 30 minutes long. At the end of your appointment, you will receive an after visit summary which contains discharge instructions, pending labs, follow-up information, and any changes to your medications. Follow-up appointments can range from 6 weeks to 6 months and are typically held with Lisa Kuechenmeister PA-C, Dr. Eiland’s physician assistant. All treatment cases can vary based on complexity.

All endocrinology services are offered via telehealth at Fillmore County Hospital. Telehealth is telecommunication technology that delivers virtual medical health services. During each appointment, you will have an endocrinology nurse facilitating the appointment that’s dedicated to helping you from the start to finish. This nurse will also be the one working closely with you to gain full understanding of your treatment plan and follow-up instructions from the provider.

Dr. Eiland is a highly-respected physician with the Department of Internal Medicine at Nebraska Medicine in Omaha. Our endocrinology services can help you manage type 1 and type 2 diabetes, hyperthyroid or hypothyroid dysfunctions, or any hormone imbalances. People who feel like their blood sugars are not controlled or people who fluctuate from hyperthyroid to hypothyroid can benefit from seeing an endocrinologist.

Endocrinologists specialize in the study of the endocrine system which produces hormones affecting metabolism, appetite, growth and development, sleep, mood, and many other bodily functions. By having such a specialized study and focused monitoring algorithm, these doctors can typically diagnose the issues and identify a resolution much faster than a primary physician.
