About Me

Karyn Ginsburg, MD is a member of Summit Health’s Endocrinology team. Dr. Ginsburg practices general endocrinology with expertise in diabetes, thyroid disorders, osteoporosis, hypercalcemia, and adrenal and pituitary disorders. Her special clinical interests include thyroid ultrasound and ultrasound-guided biopsies, as well as women’s endocrine disorders.

Dr. Ginsburg prioritizes getting to know her patients and being aware of their medical issues and any psychological, emotional, or social factors that may influence their condition. She says this approach is particularly important with treating diabetes. “Diabetes is not a simple disease. The management of diabetes is greatly affected by outside stressors, and it, in turn, affects every facet of a patient’s life.”

Dr. Ginsburg’s calling to health care came early and decisively. She had surgery at a young age, performed by a surgeon who made a lasting impression on her. In middle and high school, she frequently volunteered at her local hospital, and by high school, she was confident she’d pursue a medical career. Today, she’s paying forward the experience she had as a child—making a difference in a patient’s life—and appreciating the opportunity. “There is no greater pleasure for me than to hear from patients that I have helped make them feel better,” she says.

When she’s not seeing patients, Dr. Ginsburg enjoys traveling and spending time with her family. In addition, she is a proponent of improving community awareness of proper nutrition and lifestyle choices and improving care for the aging population.
