Why We Are Different

Our board-certified pediatric endocrinologist is specially trained to diagnose and manage endocrine disorders, many of which can persist into adulthood and require lifelong treatment. Our physician is sensitive to issues that can affect self-esteem in children and teens, including weight problems, short stature and delayed puberty, and works with families to develop and implement successful treatment plans. For patients with diabetes, our doctor partners with diabetes educators and nutritionists, offering a multifaceted approach to treatment that allows children and teens to better understand their condition and manage their health. We also coordinate treatment with primary care pediatricians for special needs children who have endocrine disorders.
