NorthBay Healthcare Diabetes & Endocrinology recently welcomed two diabetologists to its team of caregivers.

Sumera Ahmed, M.D. and Jay Shubrook, D.O., are both faculty at Touro University and will split time at NorthBay. They join endocrinologist John McKenna, M.D., who came to NorthBay earlier this year.

Dr. Ahmed  earned her medical degree from Kilpauk Medical College, Chennai, India. She was fellowship-trained in diabetes at East Carolina University, Brody School of Medicine in Greenville, N.C.

“I want my patients to know that I understand what it is to live with diabetes, I respect them, and I will listen to them as I am committed to providing good care via the most effective tools,” she said.

Dr. Shubrook earned his doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine at the University of Oklahoma College of Osteopathic Medicine. He completed his diabetes fellowship at OU-COM/Appalachia Regional Diabetes Institute

“I enjoy balancing lifestyle-based treatments with medical treatments. We can have a big impact in the prevention of this disease, its long-term control and the prevention of complications,” he said. “Seeing patients succeed is really enjoyable.”
