Expert Pediatric Endocrinology Care—Close To Home

For parents in Contra Costa County and surrounding communities, having a child with a complex medical condition used to mean spending lots of time traveling all over the Bay Area for visits with children’s specialists. 

Through our collaboration with Stanford Medicine Children’s Health, we provide expert diagnosis and treatment of endocrine disorders for children of all ages—right here, close to home.  

In addition to your pediatric endocrinologist, your child’s care team may also include nurses and other healthcare providers—all who have advanced training in specifically treating children and teens.

Pediatric Endocrinology

Children amaze me with their remarkable growth throughout childhood. I really love the chance to make a difference in the care of children and watch them blossom and grow over the years.

As a parent myself, I know that a visit with a Pediatric Specialist provokes anxiety and concern. My goal is to provide a calm, child-friendly and thorough evaluation, answer parents' questions, provide reassurance and clear next steps they can take. I strive to provide patients and families with the tools and information they need to understand and care for their child's health. In the end, I hope to demystify hormones and lessen everyone's anxiety about them.

When working with families, I often need to explain complex concepts. Empowering families to make informed decisions is important to me. I like to use drawings, diagrams, and clear explanations to help them understand the role of hormones, how the body controls them, and what happens when something goes wrong. For many patients, if their body can’t produce a hormone, we can provide replacement therapy and help to restore their normal functioning, allowing them to live full and healthy lives.

Pediatric Endocrinology

Pediatric endocrinology captivates me due to its broad influence across organ systems. My passion lies in supporting conditions such as transgender care, obesity, and reproductive disorders.

I approach patient care by understanding each child’s aspirations and personal lives, building rapport beyond medical concerns. Establishing a partnership with both the child and their family is important to me.
