About Us

Portland Diabetes & Endocrinology Center, P.C., in Portland, Oregon, is one of the oldest and largest private endocrinology clinics in the United States. The roots of our 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 endocrine diseases. All our physicians are certified as Diplomates in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

As a specialty clinic, PDEC does not provide primary care services. The majority of our patients are referred by their primary care providers 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 provider first. They can evaluate your symptoms and refer you to a specialist in our clinic if they think it is appropriate. Thank you for visiting our website and considering us to participate with you in your care. To learn more about some of the diseases we treat at PDEC, visit our Patient Resources page.
