David's Story


David Barry of the Avon Police Department discusses the treatment and care he received from the Center for Thyroid, Parathyroid, and Adrenal Disease at Jersey Shore University Medical Center.

Olatunde's Story


Olatunde Fadare flew from Nigeria to receive endocrinology care and have his thyroid surgery with Hackensack Meridian Health. Mr. Fadare was first evaluated by Dragana Jokic, M.D. and Dr. Shifrin, director of Endocrine Oncology at Hackensack Meridian Health, for treatment and surgery. Dr. Shifrin successfully performed the surgery, and Mr. Fadare was well enough to make the journey home to Nigeria two weeks later. Mr. Fadare is one example of many who have traveled from abroad to receive care with our multidisplinary team at the Center for Thyroid, Parathyroid and Adrenal Disease.
