ABOUT ME

I'm an endocrinologist who offers an integrated approach to hormonal imbalances.


I have a strong desire to see my patients succeed in improving their health - whether it's  losing weight (and keeping it off), improving their diabetes control, or getting on top of their thyroid, polycystic ovaries, osteoporosis, adrenal or pituitary disorder. I strive to get the right diagnosis and treat my patient's endocrine (hormone) problem using the latest evidence-base in medical care with compassion.

Once being nearly 120 kg, I've managed to lose 45 kg (and keep it off). I believe that weight loss doesn't have to be mysterious and that you don't need gym memberships or follow the next fad diets.

More on the services I provide and involvement in university teaching and research can be found here: https://www.westernsydney.edu.au/staff_profiles/uws_profiles/doctor_ramy_bishay

I'm a staff specialist endocrinologist and clinical lead of the Metabolic and Weight Loss Clinic at Blacktown-Mt Druitt Hospital and an endocrinologist at Norwest Private Hospital.


I completed my endocrinology and physician's training at St Vincent's, Concord, Blacktown and St George Hospitals.

I'm passionate about teaching my students and give regular lectures and bedside teaching as a senior lecturer for Western Sydney University and clinical lecturer for University of Sydney.

I also enjoy treating patients' endocrine imbalances as an endocrinologist in Fairfield and Bella Vista (The Hills Specialist Group). 

I enjoy watching espionage films with my wife, Sundays in church with family, writing scientific papers and playing superman with my twins and toddler.

WHAT IS ENDOCRINOLOGY?

Endocrinology is the study of hormones made by your body that control normal functions day-to-day. A hormone is either a steroid or a protein signalling molecule that influences normal physiology by maintaining normal: 


  • Blood sugar levels (insulin)

  • Metabolism, temperature and growth (thyroid hormone)

  • Periods and fertility (gonadotrophins, insulin)


  • ​Breastfeeding (prolactin)


  • Maintaining bone density and quality (parathyroid hormone, vitamin D, thyroid hormone, and insulin growth factor-1)

  • Growth (growth hormone and insulin growth factor-1)

  • Sexual arousal (testosterone)

  • Stress and metabolism (cortisol)

  • Calcium levels (parathyroid hormone) 

  • Stress and 'flight or fight' response (adrenaline, noradrenaline)

  • Blood pressure (aldosterone, renin)

Endocrine disease happens when one (or more) of these hormones are no longer in balance.
