Biography of Geoffrey Redmond, M.D.

Geoffrey Redmond, M.D., is an endocrinologist specializing in female hormone problems. His areas of clinical focus include polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), persistent acne, increased hair growth, alopecia (scalp hair loss), PMS, difficult menopause transitions, thyroid disorders, sexual dysfunction, menstrual problems, severe obesity, and problems of adolescent development.  Dr. Redmond has helped thousands of women treat and control hormonal disorders through his clinical practice, lectures and writing.

In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Redmond pioneered extensive clinical research in female endocrinology.  Recent studies have included treatment of PCOS with insulin sensitizers, hirsutism and treatment of acne with oral contraceptives.  Dr. Redmond was the lead investigator in the study leading to the new drug application of OrthoTri-Cyclen® (norgestimate/ethinyl estradiol) Tablets as a treatment for acne and was a major investigator for the approval of Vaniqa® (eflornithine HCI) Cream.  Other studies have concerned eflornithine cream for facial hair, testosterone for treatment of female and male sexual dysfunction and innovative forms of hormone replacement for menopause.  In all, he has been principal investigator for more than 40 studies.

Dr. Redmond's most recent book is THE HORMONALLY VULNERABLE WOMAN, (ReganBooks/HarperCollins 2005), a complete guide to women's hormone problems. He is also author of a previous guide for lay people, The Good News About Women’s Hormones (Warner Books, 1995) and editor of two medical texts: Lipids and Women’s Health (1990) and Androgenic Disorders (1995). He is currently working on another book on vital topic in women's health.

Dr. Redmond received his undergraduate degree from Cornell, an M.A. in English literature from the University of Virginia and his M.D. from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.  His post-graduate training was at Columbia and Rockefeller Universities in New York.  Upon completion of his training, Dr. Redmond was Assistant Professor of Pharmacology and Pediatrics at the University of Vermont College of Medicine.  Subsequently Dr. Redmond moved to Cleveland where he was Head of Section on Pediatric and Adolescent Endocrinology at the Cleveland Clinic.  From 1990 to 2000 he ran his own clinic and clinical research center in Cleveland.

In 2001, Dr. Redmond returned to his home city where he founded the Hormone Center of New York.


In medical education, it has become a standard practice to disclose any relationships with commercial organizations. I support this practice and think it should be extended to education for lay people as well.

I serve as a consultant, lecturer and researcher for several pharmaceutical companies in the area of  women’s health. Products and companies

I have worked with include: OrthoMcNeil (Ortho-TriCyclen®, OrthoCyclen®, OrthoPrefest®), Pfizer (Estrostep®, FemHRT®), BristolMyers Squibb (Vaniqa®), and Watson Laboratories (Unithroid®). I do not think these relationships influence my opinions because, for one thing, I do not work on products that I do not consider good choices for women. It does of course mean that I often am best informed about these products and this is, I hope, reflected in what I write. Also, I always list several products for each condition unless only one is satisfactory and then I say why. At the same time, I do not attempt to list all possible products which might be useful for a particular condition because there are simply too many. I have tried to keep things simple by focusing on relevant ones.

I have served as an advisor for the International Guild of Professional Electrologists, lectured for the American Electrology Association and a contributing editor and columnist with the International Hair Route Magazine.
