Clare Ann Flannery, MD, is an expert on diabetes and other endocrine disorders, including those that affect the thyroid, pituitary and adrenal glands. She has a special interest in treating patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a common endocrine system disorder among women of reproductive age. She also provides hormone therapy for gender transition.
“We now have so many great options for the prevention and treatment of diabetes,” Dr. Flannery says. “I wish to prevent complications and improve the reproductive health in women with diabetes, obesity or PCOS.” She advises her patients to help them make informed decisions based on the most up-to-date knowledge in the field.
Dr. Flannery is an assistant professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences, and of medicine (endocrinology) at Yale School of Medicine. Her NIH-funded research focuses on understanding how diabetes and obesity affect the uterus, with a special interest in infertility and endometrial cancer.
