About Endocrinology Associates

Medical Care. Research. Consulting. Support.

Your body is a complex, dynamic system, always adapting and responding to the various changing factors of everyday life. In our clinic, we specialize in understanding and balancing these intricate mechanisms, particularly focusing on your metabolism, hormones, and other related processes. We recognize that each person’s body is unique, and so are the challenges it faces. Our approach is tailored to meet these individual needs, drawing on a broad spectrum of expertise and experience.

The Endocrinology Associates Mission

At Endocrinology Associates, our mission is to provide the best possible care for patients with endocrine disorders. To that end, we focus on quality, transparent care that puts patients first. We spend more time with you than the average doctor because metabolic and hormonal disorders are complicated and require close attention to your lifestyle. We pay close attention to your medical history and what you’ve already tried, and we don’t rest until you’ve found relief.

Meet Dr. Elena A. Christofides, M.D., F.A.C.E.

With nearly 30 years of experience in both patient care and research, Dr. Christofides has raised the bar for what comprehensive medical service looks like, regardless of whether she’s helping patients manage their metabolism or helping a full research team establish robust clinical trials. She has the rare distinction of having two board certifications: one in Internal Medicine and the other in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism. Dr. Christofides has the compassion and expertise to find solutions when it feels like everything else has already been tried. Dr. Christofides currently lives in Columbus, OH, with her son and husband. Outside of work, she enjoys traveling and spending time with her family.

We are the coordinators of your body, and we understand that trust is integral to successful patient outcomes. All of us have been where you are in one way or another — and we want to help you overcome the fear and uncertainty that comes with making fundamental routine changes.
