Updated bio imageBorn and raised in China, Dr. Ge-Zerbe is the oldest daughter of a civil engineer and a financial expert/entrepreneur. She inherited her parents’ interests in painting, calligraphy, music, reading, math and travel. She built on those talents and followed in her grandfather’s foot steps to become a doctor. Dr. Ge-Zerbe underwent advanced education and training in Epidemiology and Molecular Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh and the National Institutes of Health after medical school before starting her clinical medicine career. After completing her fellowship at Vanderbilt University (where the grandfather of Endocrinology in this country, Dr. Grand Little, practiced), she joined a multi-specialty group in North Carolina with three other endocrinologists. In 2007, she moved to the beautiful state of Idaho with her family, where she picked up her new passion for gardening at her home near her office.

Boise Thyroid-Endocrinology, PC was born after Praxis Endocrinology and Thyroid Disorder, where she used to practice, was closed in September 2014. After much thought and reflection, Dr. Ge-Zerbe decided to maintain her practice style and spend time with her patients by opening a direct/concierge care practice without restrictions from insurances. The direct/concierge concept allows her the time to listen to her patients, to examine them carefully and to educate patients to understand the disease process and mechanisms of their medicines. In this setting, she can also get to know her patients very well and keep in touch with them 24/7.
