Endocrinologist joins Avita Health System

GALION — Dr. Todd Darmody, an endocrinologist, has joined Avita Health System and specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions related to the glands. Fellowship-trained in endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism, he is accepting patients at 270 Portland Way South in Galion.

“Dr. Darmody brings a much-needed service to the community,” comments Jerry Morasko, President and CEO of Avita Health System. “His medical expertise and years of experience are invaluable and will enhance the quality of healthcare in the area. By adding new specialties, such as endocrinology, our entire system improves and is better equipped to provide local care for patients.”

Darmody specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders related to the endocrine system, which is comprised of a collection of glands that secrete hormones into the bloodstream. When these glands do not produce the right amount of hormones, an imbalance occurs and diseases develop. The endocrine system influences almost every cell, organ, and function in the body. Common conditions that Dr. Darmody treats include diabetes, thyroid conditions, hypertension, hormonal imbalances, cancers of the endocrine glands, metabolic disorders, weight gain/loss, and osteoporosis.

He obtained his medical degree from St. George University in Grenada, West Indies. He completed an internal medicine Residency at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in Cabrini, New York and an endocrinology Fellowship at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in New York City. He has more than a decade of private practice experience in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
