About me

Prof. Dworakowska has a broad clinical practice in endocrinology (thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary, adrenals, PCOS, low testosterone, endocrine problem in pregnancy and before IVF)), endocrine oncology (tumours of endocrine glands), endocrine cardiology, diabetes (including pre-diabetes and insulin resistance), hypertension, obesity and general/internal medicine (tiredness, vitamin D deficiency, iron deficiency, hair loss, hirsutism, acne).

She provides a holistic assessment of complex medical problems and difficult to treat disorders including problems with libido, appetite and tiredness. She collaborates with other specialties to help the patients with their problems rather than concentrate on a disease.

She completed her training in endocrinology and diabetes in London at Barts and the London Hospital, as well as at Kings College Hospital and Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospital. She undertook her specialty training in general/internal medicine at Medical University of Gdansk (Gdansk, Poland), Otto-von-Guericke University (Magdeburg, Germany) and Katharinen Hospital (Stuttgart, Germany).

Prof. Dworakowska speaks English, Polish, Russian and German. She has exceptional feedback from her patients and their families that she acts with dignity, empathy and respect, communicating information in a way everybody can follow. Having experience of working in several countries, she understands and appreciates cultural differences.

Prof. Dworakowska has an extensive research portfolio in endocrinology, endocrine oncology, endocrine cardiology and general medicine.

She is a Professor at Medical University of Gdansk, Poland and an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer in Cancer Studies at Kings College London.
