Swedish Edmonds Specialty Clinic
An endocrinologist is a physician who specializes in diagnosing and managing hormone imbalances – diseases that affect your glands. This can include many conditions related to obesity such as diabetes, lipid disorders and thyroid disease.
The clinic is staffed by Elena Geamanu, MD, a board-certified endocrinologist. Dr. Geamanu believes in partnering with patients to first fully educate them about hormone imbalances and diseases caused by obesity, and then to develop individualized treatments plans that may include diet, exercise and prescribed medications when appropriate.
“Obesity is our greatest health concern,” says Dr. Geamanu. “My goal is to help educate patients about how to prevent obesity through diet and exercise. Prevention is the key to success.”
