What Is Pediatric Endocrinology
By the most basic definition, a Pediatric Endocrinologist is a “Hormone Doctor for Children.” The first term, “Pediatric,” refers to infants, children, and adolescents. Endocrinology is the science of endocrine glands, which secrete hormones.
The endocrine glands include the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland, the thyroid, the parathyroid, the pancreas, the adrenal glands, the testicles, and the ovaries. Endocrine disorders often manifest during growth and puberty, yet many other non-endocrine disorders manifest as disorders of growth and puberty.

If you have questions about the health of your child, we encourage you to talk to your primary care doctor in order to determine if a consultation visit with us would be beneficial. All of our providers put your child’s needs first – we are here for you!
