Dr. Warner M. Burch is a Professor of Medicine at Duke University Medical Center where he has been on the faculty in the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism for over 32 years. He has interviewed and examined over 20,000 individuals with endocrine disease. The photos in this book are those of his clinic patients. He is known as the “doctor’s doctor”, an astute clinician/teacher, a consummate handyman, and an avid woodworker/craftsman.

  •  “Thyroid disease is a common condition that can often be elusive to diagnose, treat, and most importantly understand. Now the health care provider, student and patient have a quick, succinct, and useful book that answers common questions in the management of thyroid disease. As an educator and endocrinologist myself, I plan to use Dr. Burch's book in teaching thyroid disease to our medical residents and students. Kudos on a wonderful addition to thyroid disease management and education!”

    "With the staggering volume of thyroid information and misinformation available on the Internet, I can with peace of mind recommend this book to any of my patients. His analogies to describe thyroid physiology and pathophysiology are illuminating. All the advice is sound and reasonable.  The text is easily comprehensible and complete, reflecting the clarity of Dr. Burch's wisdom from his vast clinical experience. This is exactly what folks interested in the thyroid need to know."
