Diabetes and Endocrinology

Living with diabetes and thyroid conditions can be challenging, but with proper education and support we can help you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. The experts in our Diabetes and Endocrinology clinic are skilled in the care and treatment of diabetes and other endocrine system conditions. They understand concerns related to the disease and provide programs and therapies to help patients achieve their health goals.

After an initial consultation with Chitravathi (Chitra Reddy) Yerrapareddy, M.D. at UnityPoint Clinic – Prairie Parkway, you can continue your care locally at the Grundy County Memorial Hospital Specialty Clinic on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month with Deborah Van Dyke, DNP, ARNP.
