Jill D. Felder, M.D., board-certified endocrinologist, has joined the staff of the Trinity Professional Group, and will establish an outpatient endocrinology and diabetes practice, to be located in The Kmart Plaza in Steubenville, beginning Monday, July 7, 2014.

Dr. Felder is welcoming new patients, and appointments may be made by calling (740) 314-8523.

In addition to the outpatient office, Dr. Felder will serve as Medical Director of the Trinity Health System’s Endocrinology and Diabetes Program, and will be providing inpatient endocrine and diabetes consultations at both Trinity campuses, as well.

Dr. Felder has been in practice for 19 years, in a variety of locations in the Pittsburgh area. A graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.), Dr. Felder was awarded her Doctor of Medicine degree with distinction from Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. She completed her internship in Barnes Hospital, St. Louis, and her residency at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, where she furthered her studies as the recipient of the prestigious Renal Endocrine Fellowship.  Dr. Felder is board certified in Endocrinology, Nephrology, and Internal Medicine.

Endocrinologists are medical specialists who study the role of hormones in human health.

"As an endocrinologist, I spend most of my time helping patients control their blood sugar and diabetes; working with thyroid hormone and gland disease; and cholesterol problems,” Dr. Felder stated. 

She added, “As a specialist, I work closely with primary care physicians to bring the most recent medical advances to enhance a patient's care.  I look forward to bringing my training and experience in Endocrinology to the patients of Trinity and the community it serves."
