Dr. Wim de Graaff
Internal Medicine Specialist
As an internist, I’m specialized in diseases of the internal organs, with special emphasis on endocrine diseases, such as thyroid disease and more rare disorders. In addition, I treat many patients with diabetes mellitus (diabetes) and osteoporosis (bone loss).
Obesity and diabetes are seen more often. The treatment and prevention of them are a huge challenge. I spend a lot of attention to inform about the lifestyle, like clean eating and mobility with the aim of encouraging patients.
