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.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. 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.

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.

07/24/2016
This dr. Streja is nice but [...] did not inspire huge confidence if I had a big medical problem. I like Affiliates [...] and am happy to recommend the group but not this specific doctor. I do appreciate that he saw me the day he called and his conclusions turned out to be correct.

07/19/2016
only the best is our experience

07/19/2016
Knowing my medical history, when Dr Streja noticed a heart murmer, he quickly arranged for the necessary test for the next day. Everything was done quickly, efficiently and fortunately this was not serious. I don't think another Doctor would have given me this type of attention.

06/23/2016
I truly respect and like Dr. Streja and his abilities. The added bonus is Dr. Streja's assistant, [...]. She is a chip off Dr. Streja's block and complement each other.

05/10/2016
Dr. Streja has me do labs BEFORE my appointment, so when I come in we have actual facts to discuss. ALL DOCTORS SHOULD DO THIS WHEN MONITORING A CHRONIC ILLNESS! I get to discuss the lab results with my DOCTOR, [...]. Also, Dr. Streja pays attention to ALL my medical issues rather than just focusing on his specialty (diabetes). He is one of the very few doctors I have ever seen who acknowledges and includes in his patient care the fact that I am a WHOLE person, not a bunch of separate parts broken down into various medical specialties. And lastly, Dr. Streja is one of the nicest, kindest, sweetest people in the whole world. He is patient and attentive and thoughtful and has a wonderful "bed side manner." He is also helpful and encouraging.

Dr Streja is the best doctor. He has been my doctor for more than 20 years. sometimes a friend will go with me to the appointment. They all agree that he is a very good doctor and person. He cares and has always taken very good care of me. […] You would be surprised how many doctors out there are treating diabetes but really don't know much about it.
