Portland Diabetes & Endocrinology, P.C., in Portland, Oregon, is one of the oldest and largest private endocrinology clinics in the United States. The roots of the clinic go back to the 1920’s, when insulin first became available for the treatment of diabetes. Through the years PDEC physicians have been leaders in the research and advancement of treatment for endocrinologic diseases. All physicians are certified as Diplomates in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism by the American Board of Internal Medicine. (see "Doctors”)
We have two locations to serve you. One office is located close to the Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital, near downtown Portland, and the other is located in the Providence St. Vincent Medical Center Office Building. (see "Locations”).
As a specialty clinic, PDEC does not provide primary care services. The majority of patients are referred by their family physicians who value the expertise of our doctors in diagnosing and treating hormonal disorders, including problems with the thyroid, pancreas, pituitary, or adrenal glands. Among the most common conditions treated are diabetes mellitus types 1 and 2, thyroid disorders, and osteoporosis. If you believe you have an endocrine condition you should contact your primary care physician who can evaluate your symptoms and then refer you to a specialist in our clinic.
