"In cultivating compassion we draw from the wholeness of our experience- our suffering, our empathy as well as our cruelty and terror. It has to be this way. Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well we can be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity" Pema Chodron

Board Certified Endocrinologist

Are you a woman in your 30's or 40's who is always tired?

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 now 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. 

Healing resides in the integration of the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual components of the human being. 


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—

I may be the right doctor for you!​
