About Me

During medical school and after getting married, life provided me with the best gift one can ever receive: my own children. I understood then that devoting myself to bringing smiles back to children who were sick was the worthiest commitment I could ever undertake. That's how I decided to become a pediatrician. Children deserve our best dedicated efforts to help them thrive, grow, and develop as they become adults.

As a pediatric endocrinologist, I help infants, children, and adolescents who suffer from various hormone disorders including growth concerns, disorders of sexual differentiation, concerns about pubertal development, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, thyroid disease, and disorders that affect any of the endocrine glands. I also treat children who have genetic syndromes, such as Down syndrome or Prader-Willi syndrome.

My team and I perform diagnostic procedures known as provocative tests, that help us understand the functions of key hormone glands, particularly the pituitary gland, adrenal glands, testicles, and ovaries. These tests help us decide if active interventions may be required.

Working with patients is very rewarding. I realize how important it is for parents and children to have a knowledgeable physician who’s empathic, caring, and devoted to providing the best care. I give my patients as much time as needed to help them voice their concerns and understand the recommended treatments.

I actively participate in research that involves innovative therapeutic pharmacologic interventions for Prader-Willi syndrome. Our office oversees and cares for one of the largest populations of patients affected by this syndrome in this country.

I am a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and an active member of the Endocrine Society and the Pediatric Endocrine Society.
