WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

Growing up in a family where my father was a pediatrician and my mother was a teacher shaped my interest in both fields and inspired me to pursue a career in medicine. As a pediatric endocrinologist, I care for patients aged 0 to 18 with metabolic disorders caused by hormone deficiency or excess. Although taking care of patients with type I diabetes (juvenile diabetes) is a common part of my practice, I also see patients with other endocrine conditions, including thyroid disorders, growth disorders, calcium and vitamin D disorders and rare metabolic bone disorders. In addition to expert medical treatment and management for endocrine disorders, education is an important part of the care I provide. I not only help my patients and their families understand the causes and symptoms of their disorders, I offer information about dealing with illnesses over time. Most importantly, I encourage and support them as they discover how to best manage these complex conditions for themselves in their day-to-day lives.
