Endocrinology at Phelps helps treatment for the following Specialties:
Our General Pediatrics physicians have been living and working in the community for years. We pride ourselves on developing personal, trusting relationships with the children and families we care for — many of our families stay with us for several generations.
Our clinicians and staff are always available to answer questions or provide extra support when your child is injured or sick. We also provide routine preventive care to keep your child healthy.
Our Pediatric Endocrinology team includes board-certified pediatric endocrinologists, certified nurse practitioners, certified diabetes educators, nurses and support staff. We are all experienced in handling the intricacies of care for complex medical conditions. We provide 24-hour care that includes inpatient and outpatient services for comprehensive, seamless continuity of care.
Because our team is dedicated to teaching, research and patient care, you can feel confident your child is receiving the best care with the most up-to-date treatments. We are the only designated New York State Newborn Screening Referral Center between NYC and Albany.
If your child needs an evaluation for diabetes or an endocrine condition — such as a problem with growth, the thyroid, puberty, calcium metabolism or periods — our team will provide comprehensive and experienced care in a friendly and convenient setting. We will walk you through the process of an initial evaluation and whatever testing, education, support and treatment is needed.
