Message from Francis Y.G. Lee, M.D.

Dear Patient,

First and foremost, I hope you and your family have been fortunate to stay healthy during this
recent crisis. I am writing you this letter today to inform you that, after much soul searching, I
have decided to leave practicing with Bay West Endocrinology on July 16, 2020, and spend as
much time as possible with my children while they are still young.
What does this mean for you as my patient? I will continue to see any scheduled patients until
July 16, 2020. I will continue to provide any necessary medical care for you, as usual until that
date. If you have an appointment after this date, you will be rescheduled by our office with either
our nurse practitioner, or one of our physician assistants, and assigned to the care of one of my
physician partners, for whom I have the utmost esteem and regard, in terms of their clinical
abilities as endocrinologists. If you have any questions or concerns about the transition, please do
not hesitate to call.
Lastly, please know that I have truly enjoyed being your doctor. You have been a special part of
my professional life. It has been a tremendous privilege and honor to have taken care of you. I
hope you all the best in the future.
Sincerely yours,

Francis Y.G. Lee, M.D.

What Women Need to Know About Thyroid Disorders


WMAR-TV (ABC-Balt.) 3:33 What women need to know about thyroid disorders It’s National Women’s Health Week — a good time to remind the women in our lives to keep health a priority. We’re all aware of the dangers that breast cancer and heart disease brings. But women also need to know about thyroid disorders.  Ruth S. Horowitz, M.D., is the chief of the Division of Endocrinology and Metabolism of the Geckle Diabetes Center at GMBC. She talked with ABC 2 News to let women know the difference between hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism and what the symptoms of both are.

More Adults and Children Diagnosed with Diabetes


WMAR-TV (ABC-Balt.) 2:25 More adults and children diagnosed with diabetes Emory Young probably pays more attention to what he eats than most people. That’s because, in 2002, Young was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. “I was thirsty all the time. I had dry skin. I was frequently going to the bathroom and experiencing weight loss,” says Young.  Dr. Ruth S. Horowitz, chief of the Division of Endocrinology at GBMC and a partner with Bay West Endocrinology Associates, says failing to manage your diabetes can have serious consequences.
