USA Health is expanding to better serve its endocrinology and diabetes patients in Baldwin County. USA Health Endocrine & Diabetes opened on Monday, June 22, at 28260 U.S. Hwy. 98, Suite B, in Daphne.
Nina Jo Hibbard, CRNP, and Judson Menefee, M.D., providers at the new clinic, treat patients with diabetes, adrenal disorders, osteoporosis, thyroid disorders and pituitary disorders. They also help patients manage their weight and metabolism.
Hibbard, a nurse practitioner specializing in endocrinology, will see patients five days a week at USA Health Endocrine & Diabetes, while Menefee will see patients two days a week at the new clinic. Menefee will continue to treat patients three days a week at USA Mobile Diagnostic Center – University Commons in Mobile.
“Diabetes and other endocrine disorders impact a large number of people in our region,” Hibbard said. “With so many patients driving from Baldwin County to see us in Mobile, we wanted to make it as convenient as possible for them to receive the care they need closer to home.”
Hibbard earned a master’s degree in nursing from Auburn University. She is board certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
Menefee, an endocrinologist, earned a medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. He completed residency training in internal medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, followed by a fellowship in endocrinology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. He is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
