Professional Statement
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. 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.”

Sometimes because of language I had to request that she repeat things. This is not serious. I am wondering about my lab results and why she is still concerned that I need to be on Cholesterol medications.

Dr. Geamanu has been my doctor since July of 2013. She is an amazing doctor, and I have complete trust in her care of my ongoing condition. We have a good rapport, and I feel like I can discuss any issues with her.

The provider used MyChart to communicate test results. The responses were terse at best. Both times I didn't understand the terse response I had to make an appointment and talk to the provider, when a simple phone call would have communicated the information. So I or my insurance had to pay for visits that in the past would have been dealt with efficiently by phone. This is a waste of time and medical resources. MyChart is only as useful as the systems designed to be. Seems like it increased cost and communication problems

she is the best! she takes time to explain very complicated changes in my insulin pump and even addresses non-endocrine problems, caring enough to call me the next day after researching appropriate care. I have sent her numerous patients because I totally trust her.

The mess up before I was able to see the doctor colored the whole experience for me.

Too focused on diet/exercise and not enough on hormonal reasons for obesity.

Dr. Geamanu is the most caring & thorough Dr. I have ever seen. She is a blessing to our community.

Due to the nature of some of my medical issues there is really little I could do to change the way the Dr. prescribed treatment. Dr. Geamanu is always very caring and when I need outside help is knowledgeable and has always provided great referrals.

Dr. Geamanu is the best. She is extremely good with her communication about treatment and very helpful in helping me understand and also in answering all my questions. Which with this visit was a whole list.

She seemed a bit more rushed than usual. One of the other patients in the waiting room was having an acute problem.

Satisfied with my provider for the most part. Little room for improvement when communicating and explaining things, but good enough for most people.

Dr. Geamanu has been wonderful from my first appointment with her. She is thorough, she explains things and she is very caring.

Has recommended an eating plan that is contradictory to other, chronic health issues. Does not listen. Seems to have only one, outdated approach to weight loss. Needs to update her understanding of and approach to treating obsesity.

While a very polite, pleasant, and professional doctor, she simply did not listen to any of my concerns. I had an entire list of symptoms. She dismissed at least one entirely and focused in on weight exclusively, stating "We have a weight loss clinic here!" She didn't listen to the fact that I've struggled to lose weight while already being in a calorie deficit of 500-1000 a day. [...] I'm going to get the lab work done, but she left me in such shock I eventually stopped trying to have a conversation with her. I just don't feel like she had any interest in listening to me. I don't need that in my healthcare team.

Again, telling me my tests were normal and not digging further to explore the cause of my symptoms is unacceptable.

Dr. Germaene was very caring and explains what the tests is all about. She knows her stuff. I like her and would not mind recommending her to my friends.

Sometimes, when explaining something, too much of that high-falootin' book-learning language is used.

Dr Geamanu is excellent, caring and supportive! Would highly recommend!

She did not show concern for my emotional and mental health when i told her i was depressed. She merely indicated that i should see my primary care provider for any antidepressants. I do not feel an endocrinologist should ignore depression.

Dr. Geamanu is by far the most thorough and knowledgable physician I have seen. she is also friendly, respectful, and understanding.

04/07/2016
provider could have asked questions first finding out what I knew instead of starting with the information asking me more about what I knew. so not to make a new patient feel as if they didn't know anything. thank you

I can not recommend this office to anyone because of the employees in reception and will probably be forced to find another doctor to treat my thyroid problems. Dr Geamanu is the best, but the office staff are TERRIBLE!!!
100

04/05/2016
Dr. Geamanu is excellent. She explains things to me regarding my disease and/or meds with terms that I can understand and also why she is doing whatever it is she is suggesting which shows me she cares and wants to work together as a team to help me. She is the best diabetic doctor I have ever seen.

The doctor met with me just prior to the procedure and explained possible scenarios. He returned after and explained what had taken place and what to look forward to.
