Dr. Roland Lajoie has the following 2 specialties
- Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Having left my previous Dr because of a lack of care or understanding of my condition Dr Lajoie was a true breath of fresh air. He took the time to explain to me everything that was going on with my condition. I did not feel rushed in the least. He took the time to not only explain what he was doing but also to answer every question I had. He has a wonderful bedside manner and I felt so relived when I left his office. I finally found a Dr that not only took the time to explain exactly what I needed to do and how he was going to help me. I would recommend him to anyone with diabetes who wants a Dr that knows his field.
He never listened to me, interrupting me constantly and made sure I didn't exceed my fifteen minutes whether my questions were answered or not. He told me all his patients are on the same regimen; totally lacks the understanding that each person is an individual and so is their diabetes. I asked him six years ago for a pump, only to be told (with an attitude) "You don't need one!' My new endo told me during my first visit that I was a prime candidate for a pump. Now that I have had one for a couple of months my blood sugar numbers are far more stable. I only wish I had left six years ago - I would not have kidney disease.
