Savitha Shastry, MD, is a board-certified endocrinologist at UT Health East Texas Physicians on Fifth Street in Tyler. "I really enjoy helping patients get their health issues under control before any complications arise, or they develop other medical conditions."
"Endocrinology is the study of hormones, and the majority of people I see have diabetes, problems with their thyroid and occasionally certain rare conditions associated with the pituitary and the adrenal glands. I enjoy getting to know my patients and providing guidance so they become healthier and more successful in their goals. Helping patients live their healthiest life is what makes my job rewarding, and why I love what I do."
