Personalized & Integrative Care

Dr. Tashko is a Board-Certified Physician in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism. He Provides Expert Care in Montgomery County, Maryland

Your “Big Picture” Endocrinologist

As a physician with specialized training and experience in endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism, I recognize the complex nature of the human body, where organs and their functions are deeply interconnected. To enhance my understanding and ability to address diverse health aspects, I pursued additional board certifications in lipidology, hypertension, and obesity medicine. These certifications are closely tied to endocrinology and play pivotal roles in overall health.

Through this expanded knowledge base, I have cultivated a unique skill set in the realm of integrative endocrinology. This comprehensive expertise empowers me to not only attend to the specific hormonal needs of my patients but also to adopt a holistic approach to their overall well-being. By addressing the interconnected relationships among various bodily systems, I aim to provide more effective and personalized care that goes beyond isolated medical concerns. In brief, this approach allows me to consider the broader context of my patients’ health, thus contributing to a more thorough and integrated endocrine care.

Beyond Symptoms

When you select me as your physician, I extend my focus beyond the assessment and treatment of isolated symptoms. My aim is to thoroughly understand the core or “hidden” factors that contribute to your condition. With this objective in mind, I consider the dynamic interplay among various hormones, metabolic processes, and bodily organs, all of which collectively influence your well-being. This detective and integrative approach enables me to pinpoint the root cause of your illness – which, in turn, guides me in formulating a personalized treatment plan that leads to more effective and enduring health outcomes.

Patient Education

I strongly believe in the importance of patient education. By working together, I help you understand the complexities of your medical condition and the available treatment options. This empowers you to make informed decisions about your health and actively participate in your healthcare journey.

Optimal Health

Ultimately, my approach revolves around enhancing your overall health, extending your lifespan, and, most importantly, fostering a more fulfilling life. I am committed to providing unwavering support throughout your health journey, guiding you towards the optimal outcomes for a future that is both healthier and happier.
