Alexander C. Gelou MD

  • Family Medicine
  • PeaceHealth Medical Group Provider

We welcomed Alexander Gelou, MD, to the PeaceHealth Medical Group- Fairhaven Plaza Clinic Family Medicine team of providers in 2019. Dr. Gelou has a special medical interest in osteoporosis, osteopenia and bone health. He is passionate about working with his patients to prevent falls and fractures (broken bones) especially in the spine and hip.

Prior to joining PeaceHealth, Dr. Gelou practiced hospital-based medicine in Palm Springs, California. He provided a full spectrum of inpatient care.

Medical education has been a theme of Dr. Gelou’s career. He was chief resident of his training program and has presented at conferences on various health-related subjects, including wilderness medicine, radiology and electrocardiograms (EKGs). He also taught family medicine to medical students and doctors in training.

“I strive to work on health issues together with my patients and do my best to help in a caring and respectful way,” he said.

Dr. Gelou is no stranger to the Pacific Northwest, as he grew up just across the border near Vancouver, British Columbia (BC). He is fluent in the Greek language. Outside of the clinic, he enjoys spending time with family, hiking, and cheering on the Seahawks and Canucks.
