YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED ABOUT YOUR CHILD'S DIAGNOSIS
Dr. Lerner teaches parents who want to know everything.
Because you can't learn everything at a 15-minute doctor's appointment.
How did my child develop this condition?
Will it ever go away?
What are the side effects of conventional treatments?
Is it better to try a natural supplement?
Why does my doctor tell me not to worry when I can see there's something wrong?
Parents have questions about their child.
Will growth hormone treatment make my short child taller?
Is my child's early puberty caused by drinking cow's milk?
Is my child gaining weight because their thyroid levels are off?
Is my teenager's moodiness caused by her hormones?
Does having Hashimoto's mean that my child will never feel normal again?
If you are worried, or just want to know everything, and you want to discuss
what you've observed, researched, or heard from a friend or family member,
with a board-certified pediatric endocrinologist, pediatrician, and parent
who has decades of experience with supplements and has reviewed alternative therapies,
Dr. Lerner would love to spend time with you, answering your questions.
In fact, she has already researched it and discussed it with other concerned parents like you.

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 LEARN ABOUT links above.
An appointment with me is helpful if you need more time, and more conversation about the concerns and questions you have about a child's diagnosis.
I teach parents like you what you want to know so your child can receive optimal care.
At your appointment, we will review together your child's blood tests, previous reports and evaluations. 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.
I will spend two hours with you focused on your child's diagnosis. That time is guided by your questions and concerns, and can include teaching to provide background, as well as a comprehensive conversation prompted by your questions about your child's condition and its treatment.
You and your local medical team should rest assured that information will be correct, clear, and comprehensive.
