Roza E. Clempus, MD
I speak: English, Romanian
My gender: Female
Where I practice
I am originally from Romania. In 2001, after my graduation from Carol Davila Medical School in Bucharest, I came to Emory University, where I spent the following seven years as a research scientist in cardiology. I have become attached to Atlanta since my arrival, so I completed the rest of my training here, which includes my internal medicine residency at Atlanta Medical Center and my endocrinology fellowship at Emory University. My husband is a pastor, and we have three children.
About my practice
I practice endocrinology, which means I manage a variety of conditions related to hormone imbalance (from diabetes and thyroid), disorders of lipid metabolism, and parathyroid, pituitary, adrenal and gonadal disorders. Philosophically, my practice is oriented toward educating people to help them make their own decisions about care.
How I thrive
I like to live by what I preach. I see the human body as a unity of body and soul. Growing up in a Mediterranean environment, we have continued our habit of eating at home 99% time. I enjoy cooking, gardening and spending time outdoors with our kids. In the summers we go to the ocean and hiking, and in the winters we go skiing. Over the past 15 years, my family and I have worked to build a church with our Romanian community here in Atlanta.
