Maxwell P. Kwaku, MD, is a board-certified endocrinologist at UT Health East Texas Physicians North Campus Tyler. He specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of hormone-related disorders such as diabetes, thyroid, adrenal and pituitary diseases. He utilizes a team approach to health management, incorporating the services of other specialists and healthcare professionals. Dr. Kwaku also focuses on patient education.

"My approach is to provide as much information as possible to my patients, so they can control their disease and assist in their own health management. Diabetes is a lifelong, 24-hour-a-day disease. You only see a doctor once every three months. You have to know enough about the disease so that you can do things for yourself between doctor visits. I am dedicated to patient care, and my goal is to help my patients live normal lives in spite of their diseases."

He is a great doctor. Knows his business. I would recommend him to everyone. He tells you like it is no beating around the bush. Has a great bedside manor.

Took plenty of time and answered all my questions. I found that he is very intelligent and expects his patient to be a thinking and active participant in their own health management. I find the approach refreshing and appreciate being treated accordingly. I received information never shared by my previous providers and feel empowered. If you want to be babied and minimally involved in your care-poor fit. If you want to be part of your team and have tools to work with-good fit
