As a pediatric endocrinologist, I provide comprehensive care for children and adolescents with hormone disorders, including growth and puberty problems, thyroid diseases and diabetes. I also evaluate and treat metabolic bone diseases and osteoporosis in childhood and adolescents.
My philosophy is to provide compassionate and personalized care. I like to engage children and their parents in developing the best treatment plan for them. I am board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics (2017) and Pediatric Endocrinology (2021). As a Certified Clinical Densitometrist (2020), I also provide service in bone density analysis as part of a comprehensive bone health evaluation.
My current research focuses on bone health in children and adolescents with conditions that may predispose them to a compromised peak bone mass. Childhood and adolescence are critical periods for bone mass accrual. I hope my work on the early identification and intervention for children at risk for low bone mass will ultimately prevent osteoporosis during their adult years.
