At TED, our Mission is to provide the residents of North Texas with world-class endocrinological care. We strive to provide our patients with compassionate, efficient, and expedient services in a comfortable setting. We seek to bring groundbreaking diabetes and endocrine research and breakthroughs to the people of North Texas.
At TED, we realize that every patient is much more than a disease or a revenue generating encounter. We know that every patient is much more than the sum of his/her chart. Every patient is someone's parent, someone's sibling, someone's child; and we treat every patient with the respect, effort, and care that we would give our own family members.
We hope that you will consider Dr. Fordan and TED for your endocrine care.
