Robert Lawrence Borowski, DO

Dr. Robert Borowski is a board-certified endocrinologist for MUSC Health's Center for Telehealth. He sees patients virtually to help bring his endocrinology expertise across the state of South Carolina.

While treating most endocrinology conditions, he has particular interests in type I and type II diabetes, and obesity. In the past, he helped develop and run a transition clinic. This clinic transitioned patients from pediatric to adult endocrinology while supporting them to gain confidence, independence, and chronic disease control. Additionally, Dr. Borowski treats disorders of the pituitary, thyroid, adrenal glands, calcium/parathyroid diseases, PCOS, and osteoporosis.

He received his bachelor's degree in biochemistry from the University at Buffalo and earned his Doctorate in Osteopathic Medicine from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2014. Dr. Borowski completed his internal medicine residency at United Hospital Services in Binghamton, NY (2017), and his fellowship in endocrinology at the University at Buffalo (2019). He is board-certified in endocrinology, diabetes, metabolic disorders, and internal medicine.

Dr. Borowski has had type I diabetes since the age of three and has a wealth of firsthand experience with insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors. He understands the difficulty of living with a chronic disease but also knows what is required to fully accept the diagnosis, how to build skills to overcome the barriers and challenges, and strategies to stay motivated to live a healthy, meaningful life.

By blending the knowledge he has acquired as a chronic disease patient with his medical skill and experience in the healthcare system, Dr. Borowski can provide personalized treatment plans to empower and motivate patients. He aims to help patients better understand their disease and learn to live a balanced, productive, and healthy life.

Dr. Borowski uses a whole-body approach and works with his patients to develop an evidence-based treatment plan. This plan is one in which patients understand and feel confident, to stabilize the disorder and maximize their health and well-being.

Dr. Borowski is passionate about the new opportunities that telemedicine can bring. He hopes to utilize this platform to reduce the burden of appointments and increase access to the field of endocrinology across the state of South Carolina.

Most endocrinology conditions can be treated through the telehealth platform, but if an in-person visit is needed, his team will help coordinate this with the MUSC Health Endocrinology Team.
