Maxwell P. Kwaku, MD, is a board-certified endocrinologist at UT Health East Texas Physicians on Fifth Street in Tyler. He specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of hormone-related disorders such as diabetes, thyroid, adrenal and pituitary diseases. He utilizes a team approach to health management, incorporating the services of other specialists and healthcare professionals. Dr. Kwaku also focuses on patient education.
"My approach is to provide as much information as possible to my patients, so they can control their disease and assist in their own health management. Diabetes is a lifelong, 24-hour-a-day disease. You only see a doctor once every three months. You have to know enough about the disease so that you can do things for yourself between doctor visits. I am dedicated to patient care, and my goal is to help my patients live normal lives in spite of their diseases."
