Stella Hecker, M.D.

Dr. Hecker

As an endocrinologist, Stella Hecker, M.D., works in the study of hormones including diabetes and thyroid, adrenal and pituitary glands. With fellowship training from New York University Medical Center, she truly is an expert in her field. What makes the biggest impact on her patients is her personalized approach to medicine. Dr. Hecker knows that the best way to make a difference in her patients' lives is to help them take good care of themselves.

"Diabetes is a very patient-oriented disease; the success of the treatment basically hinges on the patient. The patient has to understand their condition. I can give them all the medicine in the world, but they have to change their lifestyle: watch their diet, increase exercise, lose weight if they need to. That's what makes the difference. It's so rewarding to be able to help people and know that I've touched their lives.”
