Comprehensive Endocrine Services in the Columbia River Gorge

Endocrinology is the field of hormone-related conditions and diseases. Hormones regulate everything from your mood to your bodily functions. When hormones are out of balance, it can negatively affect your life in many ways.

Endocrinologists are specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions such as diabetes, thyroid diseases, metabolic disorders, hypertension, osteoporosis and the over- or underproduction of hormones.

Clinic Hours:

Monday-Friday 8 am - 5 pm

Endocrinologists diagnose and treat hormone imbalances and problems, such as:

  • Cancers of the endocrine glands
  • Cholesterol (lipid) disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Infertility
  • Lack of growth (short stature)
  • Menopause
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Osteoporosis
  • Over or under production of hormones
  • Thyroid disorders

Endocrine disorders can cause many health problems. Symptoms that may be hormone-related include:

  • Anxiety or depression
  • Bone or joint pain
  • Breaking hair
  • Changes in menstrual periods
  • Decreased sex drive
