Dr. Irinel Stanciu , MD


Dr. Irinel Stanciu MD, FACE, CCD, ECNU is a board-certified adult endocrinologist who specializes in osteoporosis, hyperparathyroidism, and other metabolic bone disorders.

Dr. Stanciu completed Internal Medicine Residency at Cook County Hospital (now John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County) in Chicago and Endocrinology and Metabolism Fellowship at Loyola University in Maywood, Illinois. She received her board certification in Internal Medicine in 2000 and in Endocrinology and Metabolism in 2008 and has maintained both certifications active.

Dr. Stanciu has worked as both an internal medicine and endocrinology specialist in underserved areas, private clinics, as well as hospital environments, which has given her a broad spectrum of experience in different medical settings and with diverse populations. However, in the last several years, the practice of medicine has become increasingly stressful and burdensome for physicians due to numerous requirements and regulations which limits the time directly spent with patient.
Therefore, Dr. Stanciu has decided to become an independent provider, able to practice endocrinology and metabolic health based on what patients actually need in order to improve and maintain their general health and well-being. In April 2022, Dr. Stanciu decided to open a DIRECT CARE PRACTICE in the field of adult endocrinology, osteoporosis and metabolic disorders, based on patients’ unique medical conditions and in direct collaboration with them. Dr. Stanciu’s practice is to fully educate her patients about the disease process and provide them with appropriate options for evaluation and treatment of their illness, with the goal of achieving the best possible state of health.

In her DIRECT CARE PRACTICE, Dr Stanciu evaluates and treats any metabolic bone disorder: osteoporosis, osteopenia, hyperparathyroidism, metabolic bone disorders associated with chronic kidney disease, disorders of calcium, phosphorus and vitamin D metabolism, hypercalciuria but also other RARE METABOLIC BONE DISORDERS like: Osteogenesis Imperfecta, Hypophosphatasia (HPP), X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH), fibrous dysplasia, tumor-induced osteomalacia (TIO), etc. Important part of Dr Stanciu’s practice is preventing recurring fractures - for this reason, she evaluates in detail bone, density tests and tries to find the reason behind the fractures which can mean evaluation for thyroid, pituitary, adrenal and lipid disorders, prediabetes, obesity, etc.

Dr Stanciu is AACE-ECNU certified in performing and interpreting thyroid and parathyroid ultrasounds. She is also ISCD certified in interpreting DXA (bone mineral density) tests.

Dr Stanciu was nominated 5280 Magazine Top Doctor for 2020 and 2021 as well as Top Endocrinologist 2022.
Dr. Stanciu looks at her practice as patient-oriented and wants to be cost meaningful in both her treatments and diagnostic evaluation. Her goal is to make every patient comfortable with the decision, knowledgeable about the disease process, and encourage them to be an active participant in their healing process.

Dr Stanciu is not contracted with any commercial or governmental insurances (Medicare, Medicaid, etc) and accepts only direct payments from patients in the form of fee-for-service or membership/subscription models.

"I was referred to Dr. Stanciu by my orthopedic surgeon because of poor healing after a previous surgery. She determined what the issue was and put me on medication, resulting in excellent healing of a subsequent surgery. Dr Stanciu explained my treatment and answered all of my questions, letting me be a part of the decision making. Although she is no longer in my network, I am staying with her ..."

"She calls a spade a spade and makes one understand the seriousness of what you are dealing with. I appreciated her frankness and concern for me with the Addison's disease I developed. Thanks to her, I am still alive. She treated me for about ten years until she ended up with cancer."
