Dr. Orr seeks to diagnose and treat endocrine disorders in an evidence-based fashion while working collaboratively with her patients. The most important person in this collaboration is the patient. "In endocrinology and particularly in diabetes, what the patient knows and does regarding lifestyle choices is often more than what I can do with my prescription pad," she said.
