the Institute of Endocrinology

Panama City Diabetes, Health, & hormones Specialists

The endocrine system is a system of glands in the body that secrete specific hormones into the bloodstream for the regulation of metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, and mood. When this system is impaired, your health is adversely affected.

Serving adults, adolescents, and children across the region, the Institute of Endocrinology is focused on providing the highest level of quality, comprehensive endocrine care for each individual patient.  

Call us today for an appointment if you’re seeking to more effectively treat and manage your diagnosed disease, or if you’re experiencing symptoms believed to be connected to diabetes, thyroid, metabolism, or growth problems.  (Click on our Diabetes and Thyroid Page for more information and helpful links.)

Why do patients choose the institute of endocrinology for their care?
“We are a complete center, not just an office. The patient comes to us, and leaves fully prepared.”

~Sherief M. Kamel, MD FACE ECNU



Dr. Kamel is experienced in treating the most difficult cases and implements evidence-based clinical care customized to the individual patient. Utilizing the most current practices, therapies, nutritional and pharmacological treatments, Dr. Kamel is committed to providing the best care in the region. Supported by a team of specialty trained nurse practitioners and professional support staff, he provides patients with the benefits of a full service endocrine center.


“We create specific treatments, unique ways of treating, which will work for the patient. We advocate research and in some cases use non-traditional methods.”

~Sherief M. Kamel, MD FACE ECNU



Dr. Kamel is skilled in sonography of the neck, and in biopsies of the thyroid, parathyroid, and lymph nodes. We offer the added convenience, control, and quick results of in-house lab services, ultrasound, and x-ray. Our practice is also obtaining a license to administer radioactive iodine diagnostics and uptake studies on site. Our lab is fully accredited by COLA, compliant with CLIA standards, and recognized by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).


“We admit our own patients to the hospital, if needed.  
I will personally see them there and provide for their care.”

~Sherief M. Kamel, MD FACE ECNU


Dr. Kamel has developed solid working relationships with area hospitals and physicians to communicate and coordinate with your primary care physician, or doctors who may be treating you for other conditions. And if you are admitted to the hospital, Dr. Kamel will personally see you, so you’re assured of receiving care from one who is familiar with your medical history and treatment. He holds admitting privileges to Gulf Coast Medical Center, Bay Medical Center, and Select Specialty Hospital.


“We recommend the latest tools to manage these diseases, and we offer classes to our patients so they can learn how to most effectively use them.”

~Sherief M. Kamel, MD FACE ECNU


The Institute of Endocrinology conducts health education classes for groups and individuals so our patients are well-informed and equipped to use the variety of treatment methods and therapeutic tools like nutrition plans, insulin pumps, insulin pens, and continuous glucose monitors.
