Patient Care Philosophy

I enjoy answering patients' questions and addressing their concerns. When patients ask questions, it means that they are interested in their health. My role as a physician is to help patients understand their health and help them become as healthy as possible. For the best health care for each of my patients, there must be a dialog so that I can understand their concerns, their goals and their preferences regarding health care choices.

Personal Interests

Running, triathlons, reading, live theater and music.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Anawalt has focused on clinical care of patients with testicular disorders, male or female infertility, thyroid disease including thyroid nodules and cancer, and calcium or bone disorders.

Teaching Interests

I teach medical students, residents, fellows and peers about a broad range of endocrinology (hormone) disorders particularly diseases that affect male and female sex hormone levels.

Research Interests

Dr. Anawalt has conducted clinical research and published many articles on the effects of testosterone in men, male infertility and male hormonal contraception.
