Biography

Endocrinologist Dan Streja, M.D., whose parents were physicians, always envisioned he'd pursue a career in medicine. While it was the science that drove him to his career, it was his interaction with patients that fueled it.

Dr. Streja trained in endocrinology and then taught medical school in Canada prior to moving to the United States in 1979. He is the co-director of the Lipid Clinic, Section of Endocrinology, the co-director of cardiovascular risk prevention, Diabetes Clinic, and co-director of cardiovascular prevention clinic, Section of Cardiology, at the Greater Los Angeles Veteran Affairs Healthcare System in West Los Angeles.

In addition, Dr. Streja is a clinical professor in the sections of Endocrinology and Cardiology in the department of Medicine at UCLA Medical School. He continues to be active in research, has published 46 papers, has co-authored four textbooks and is medical director of Infosphere Clinical Studies where he oversees research studies related to endocrinology and cardiovascular prevention.

Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety. However, language that may contain profanity, slander, libel or private health information is removed. Comments reflect the views and opinions of patients. Comments are not endorsed by, nor do they necessarily reflect the views of, Providence.

Dr. Streja is a wonderful doctor and diagnostician. I went in to see him, on my regular doctor's day off, and I was in extreme acute pain. Dr. Streja was patient, kind, and in one-touch knew exactly what my medical problem was. He instructed me to stop taking certain medications, and routed me to referred care with precision. Dr. Streja was both kind and highly knowledgeable, with an appearance of little effort. He was more focused on talking with me, to assure me everything would be ok. Dr. Streja's nurse is also absolutely fantastic - very sweet, great energy, and obviously dedicated to the patient.

The day I had my appointment the computers were down so my records were not available. Dr. Streja has been my doctor for so many years that between us we were able to discuss everything that my records would contain.

This was my first time to visit your office and Dr. Streja. I thought he was very knowledgeable and explained things well, although, with his accent sometimes he was hard to understand but I just asked the question again so it was no big deal. And he seemed to have a good sense of humor.

The front desk didn't tell the nurse of my arrival, so I waited 30 min. in the waiting room. Even with my delayed arrival, Dr. Streja took time with me.

Waited over an hour for appt. [...] a phone call as a courtesy would be nice. Also, complained I was always tired to Dr. He immediately asked if I was depressed. Doubt he would have made that comment if I was a man.

I think that it is not proper to ask about a persons race by the front desk. Also why we have to verify our address and phone # on every single visit.

When having my yearly physical, I am accustomed to having chest x-ray, corroded artery screening, abdominal ultra sounds and an EKG. None of these were administered. Only blood work. Coming from my past internist whom recently retired, this physical left much to be desired.
