About Dr. Tashko


Graduated from University of Maryland College Park, 2000 and University of Maryland School of Medicine, 2004.

Completed training; internship, residency and endocrine research fellowship at Penn State Medical Center, 2011.

Author and coauthor of several medical articles, 1998-2017

Involved in research projects at National Institutes of Health (NIH), Walter Reed Army Medical Center, University of Maryland Baltimore, and Penn State Hershey Medical Center, 1994-2011.

ABIM board certified in Internal Medicine, 2008, and Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, 2011

Certified Clinical Hypertension Specialist, accredited by the American Society of Hypertension, June 2016.

Main clinical interest is METABOLIC SYNDROME and its related conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, obesity, insulin resistance, thyroid dysfunction, polycystic ovarian syndrome, low testosterone, and hormonal imbalance.

My goal as a physician is to apply evidence-based medicine, tailored to patients’ needs — by developing a meaningful partnership via trust, understanding, and education.

My patients should expect a compassionate, thorough discussion on diagnosis, management, and treatment.

Hobbies include fitness, football, J.S.Bach music, history and keeping up with recent medical research and literature. I frequently posts new clinical findings online (www.GertiTashkoMD.com)
