Sierra Endocrine Associates, located in prestigious north Fresno, California, was founded by Dr. Joseph B. Hawkins, Jr. in 1993. His goal was to build a team of highly skilled doctors, nurse practitioners, and health educators in order to better serve the Endocrine needs of the Central Valley. Today, Dr. Punzalan, Dr. Makhija, NP Morales, NP Flemming, and NP Boldt join Dr. Hawkins in providing expert care to their patients. All of our doctors are board certified in Diabetology, Endocrinology, and Metabolism.
