CORINA FRATILA, M.D.
Board Certified Endocrinologist
Are you a woman in your 30's or 40's who is always tired and can't lose weight?
Have you started developing acne even though your skin was always clear?
Are your periods irregular and you have trouble getting pregnant?
You may need to be evaluated for polycystic ovarian syndrome.
For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a doctor. In my young seven year-old mind, being a doctor
equaled being a magician. To be able to make humans feel better, to have the knowledge and the skills
to take away pain and suffering seemed incredible, almost magical. Both my father and my father’s
mother, even though not doctors, were the local healers in their Romanian towns. They provided home
remedies for colds and flu, injections, cared for dog bites, diagnosed fractures, and more. My father did
it all. My grandmother, a school teacher, knew everybody in her village, and everybody knew her and
went to her for advice. She was considered "The Wise One.” I observed them, and I naturally started
applying all the knowledge they taught me.
Being accepted into medical school was one of the best days
of my life. My dream of becoming one of them, one of the "healers", was finally coming true!
I graduated from Carol Davila University of Medicine in Bucharest in 1996, and completed my Internal
Medicine residency at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York in 2002. I graduated from the
Endocrinology and Metabolism fellowship and became a specialist in endocrine disorders in 2005. I am
Board Certified in Endocrinology and Metabolism and have been a thyroid and diabetes specialist,
serving the Greater Baltimore area since 2005.
Leaving my job for 14 years was the hardest and best decision I've ever made. Confronted with
pressures from many different directions—which most doctors now endure—I decided to forge my own
path and live my dream, to be the healer I always wanted to be, the way I envisioned it long ago. I
named my practice Ideal Endocrinology because I have the chance to create what I consider the ideal
patient experience. My inspiration was Pamela Wible, M.D. and the Ideal Medical Care movement that
she started. In a broken health care system, her model has produced thousands of thriving medical
practices all over the country, creating happy patients and happy doctors. None of the usual barriers
between doctors and patients exist—no phone trees, sterile, cold buildings, or endless navigation of
corporate grounds and parking lots. You will not be a number on an assembly line.
I am looking forward to knowing YOU as a human being. I am very skilled at interpreting lab results, but
my gift is looking at you as a whole human, making sense of the lab tests in the context of everything
else happening to you. I am the questioner, the one who always asks "why,” who always wonders why
things don't fit with the bigger picture. I want to get to the root of the problem, not just offer quick fixes.
Medication is only one of the tools I have in my tool box. I also use a nutritional assessment,
mindfulness, lifestyle interventions and a team approach of outstanding healers to refer to.
If you desire a personalized medical experience with a holistic and integrative approach, somebody who will
look at the complex interactions between body, mind and soul, if you want a partner in your journey to health-
someone who will know you well, care deeply and have the knowledge and expertise to help you—
