Dr. Geer is an endocrinologist who specializes in caring for people with pituitary and neuroendocrine diseases. She is the Medical Director of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Multidisciplinary Pituitary & Skull Base Tumor Center, located at Memorial Hospital in Manhattan. Their multidisciplinary pituitary team provides personalized surgical and medical treatment for people with pituitary and skull base tumors, including prolactinomas, growth-hormone secreting adenomas (acromegaly), and Cushing’s disease. Their overall goal is to improve and advance the care of people with these conditions.

Dr. Geer’s research interests focus on achieving a better understanding of how and why pituitary tumors develop, and characterizing long-term outcomes in patients with Cushing’s disease. She has conducted a number of studies investigating body composition, adipose tissue regulation, and appetite in patients with Cushing’s disease, and she is involved in clinical trials investigating new medical therapies for patients with Cushing’s and acromegaly.

Dr. Geer completed her internship and residency at the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia Medical Center. She was a fellow in endocrinology and metabolism at the Icahn School of Medicine/Mount Sinai Medical Center, after which she was a member of the faculty for ten years.
