Nearly 15 percent of residents in Worcester County have diabetes. Endocrinologists are experts in many type of endocrine disorders, but in an area with a high prevalence, diabetes is one of the most significant health issues they see.
“Managing diabetes is important to prevent complications and keep people as healthy as possible,” said Dr. Jack Snitzer, one of the endocrinologists who will be working in the Berlin office. “We are pleased to be able to bring our care closer to home for so many patients.”
Dr. Snitzer will also continue to see patients in his current Salisbury office, along with Dr. Juman Takkedin, and nurse practitioners Indre Doyle and Kimberly Rogers.
“It is important for us to expand high-quality healthcare services to underserved areas,” said Chris Hall, Vice President of Strategy and Business Development at PRMC. “We want to bring these vital services closer to our many patients in the beach communities. Easier access to regular endocrinology care can help people stay well and out of the hospital, while receiving expert care in a lower-cost environment.”

He completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Suburban General Hospital in Norristown, Pa., and a fellowship in Endocrinology at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Cleveland, Ohio.
