Dr. Jaume is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in both internal medicine and endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism. He specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of endocrine diseases in general, with particular interest in endocrine autoimmunity (mainly thyroid diseases and diabetes) and thyroid cancer. He directs the Multidisciplinary Thyroid Clinic, which is dedicated to screening of thyroid cancer using ultrasound-guided biopsy of thyroid nodules and onsite cytopathology.
