Dr. Shulamit Lerner explains what you need to know
about your child's endocrine diagnosis

through comprehensive teaching and interactive conversation,
so that you fully understand its causes and management.

If your son is short,
If your daughter has irregular periods.
If your doctor diagnosed early puberty or a thyroid problem,
If they assured you there's nothing else to do, but you want to be sure,
and there's no one else with experience in your area.

If your child is diagnosed with growth hormone deficiency, 
early or late puberty, Hashimoto thyroiditis, hormone imbalance/PCOS, 
congenital adrenal hyperplasia/adrenarche or TBI/pituitary injury,
learn more through the DIAGNOSIS link above.
Learn the basics of your child's condition, how it is diagnosed, and what treatments are available.
Learn what you need to know, so that you can be a partner with your child's doctors in your child's care.

To discuss details specific to your child, schedule a time to speak with Dr. Lerner.

Dr. Lerner will help you turn your worry into knowledge, education into action.

                                                 HOW DR. LERNER CAN HELP

Start seeking answers with your child's own health care provider and, if available, a pediatric endocrinologist.  

Read about a diagnosis, including answers to many of the questions parents have, through the DIAGNOSIS links above.

An appointment with me is only needed if you need more -  more specifics about causes or treatments, and more

conversation about the concerns and questions you have, or if you need someone with greater experience in guiding your approach to your child's diagnosis. 

I want to support you and your local doctors to teach you what you need to know for your child's best care.

I will spend an hour with you focused on your child and their diagnosis. That hour includes teaching to provide background, and a comprehensive conversation prompted by your questions about your child's condition and its treatment.  

Please email your child's blood tests and previous reports and evaluations prior to our conversation. These documents will help inform my discussion with you, to direct my teaching toward your child's precise diagnosis.  Important documents include growth charts in growing children, laboratory results, consultation reports, imaging reports, and - if  possible - images of bone age x-rays.

You and your local medical team should rest assured that information will be correct, clear, and comprehensive.
