The only physician in the U.S.A. certified in Endocrinology/Diabetes, Hypertension, Dyslipidemia, and Obesity*

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

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

Hobbies include fitness, football, J.S.Bach music, history, and recent medical research and literature review. I frequently post new clinical findings online here (www.GertiTashkoMD.com*)
