About Dr. Sloan 

Dr. Sloan is a graduate of the University of Chicago School of Medicine.  She completed an internship in family medicine at Chicago's Illinois Masonic Hospital before moving to Albuquerque.  At the University of New Mexico, she completed a residency in internal medicine followed by a fellowship in endocrinology, diabetes & metabolism.  She has lived in Albuquerque for 19 years.  

 

During her first decade of practice, Dr. Sloan observed that many patients had endured childhood and adult trauma as well as medical trauma.  These harmful experiences appeared to be connected to the development of behaviors and attitudes that made it extremely difficult to build reliable self-care practices essential to managing life-long endocrine conditions. Furthermore, she observed that many endocrine problems appear in childhood and young adulthood when people are most vulnerable and often do not have access to the help they need.  For this reason, Dr. Sloan attended the University of New Mexico's graduate counseling program, where she received education and training in the field of counseling. 

Since then, Dr. Sloan has integrated counseling into her practice of endocrinology.  She encourages patients to assemble comprehensive treatment teams that include therapists, psychologists and psychiatrists as well as primary care providers and medical specialists.  She also supports patients in incorporating non-Western healing methods, exercise, nutrition, meditation, body work and other wellness practices.
