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 human body’s complex nature, where organs and their functions are deeply intertwined. To broaden my understanding and address patents’ diverse health aspects, I pursued additional board certifications in lipidology, hypertension, and obesity medicine. These certifications are closely linked to endocrinology and play pivotal roles in overall health.

Through this expanded knowledge base, I have developed a unique skill set in the realm of integrative endocrinology. This cross-disciplinary expertise empowers me to not only attend to my patients’ specific hormonal needs but also to take a holistic approach to their overall well-being. By addressing the interconnected relationships among various bodily organs, I aim to provide more effective and personalized care that transcends isolated medical symptoms. In short, this approach allows me to consider the broader context of my patients’ health, resulting in a more thorough and integrated endocrine care experience.

Dr. Tashko offers integrative endocrine care by considering the various organs and systems in the patient's body. This approach leads to compassionate, personalized care and holistic positive outcomes for the individual.

Beyond Symptoms

When you choose me as your doctor, I move beyond simply assessing and treating isolated symptoms. Instead, I focus on uncovering the underlying or “hidden” factors contributing to your condition. I do this by considering the dynamic interplay between various hormones, metabolic processes, and bodily organs, all of which influence your well-being. This detective and integrative approach allows me to pinpoint the root cause of your illness, which then guides me in creating a personalized treatment plan that leads to more effective and lasting 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.
