Deborah Murray, MD
Diabetes, Endocrinology & Metabolism
I like to think of myself as a medical detective. What intrigues me about medicine is looking for clues to help patients deal with their condition. If I'm able to pick up on the little things that patients tell me —that can lead to big "aha" moments. I take a lot of pride in listening carefully and seriously to what my patients tell me.
I'm an endocrinologist, with an extensive background in helping patients manage complex diseases. My special interest is in caring for patients with diabetes, osteoporosis and thyroid disease. In addition, I like helping women through the menopause transition and providing options for preventing and treating osteoporosis. I care for patients age 18 and older.
I'm a big believer in medical education and encourage patients to learn as much as they can about their health. Teaching has always been part of my entire career in both clinical and academic settings. I spent 10 years as assistant professor of medicine in the Department of Medicine at the Uniformed Services University of Health Services in Bethesda, Maryland. I also spent seven years as department chief of the endocrine service and as an attending physician in internal medicine at David Grant Medical Center. I'm proud of my 23-year career by serving in the United States Air Force.
