NOW OFFERING TELEHEALTH APPOINTMENTS
Portland Diabetes and Endocrinology Center
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.
PDEC providers are unmatched when it comes to experience in assisting patients utilizing the latest in diabetes technology!
It hasn’t been that long since insulin injections were the only way to treat patients with diabetes. Over the past several years technology has advanced to include not only oral and injectable medications but also devices to assist patients in monitoring their blood sugar levels.
Continuous Glucose Monitoring Systems (CGMS) & Insulin Pumps
Continuous Glucose Monitoring devices worn by patients do just as the name describes – continually monitor blood glucose levels! Insulin pumps help eliminate the need for multiple daily injections and simplify the delivery of medications. All PDEC providers are well versed in many brands of insulin pumps available on the market today as well as supporting several CGMS options including Dexcom, Guardian, Libre and the new Eversense implanted CGMS system. Utilizing one of these devices along with an insulin pump has revolutionized the way patients manage their diabetes.
Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
The volume of research into updated treatment options for patients with Type 2 Diabetes has skyrocketed in the past few years. PDEC providers work with each individual patient to find the best and most cost effective treatment for them.

“When I was placed in the hands of Dr. Bergstrom, after years of Type 1 Diabetes, I was given a new life. This man is more than knowledgeable he also takes a true role in your life as a guide, a friend and a brother. My diabetes is what they call challenging. I am always changing the way my disease is displayed. I am grateful knowing I have the best there is in care and will never change my doctor as long as he is still practicing. I have had to make insurance changes since I have Medicare and won’t give in to a cheaper plan if he isn’t on it. I may be forced to pay a little more but if I do I won’t blink a eye. Great service and care doesn’t have a price. Thank you Dr. For everything!”
