Dr. Lerner teaches parents who want to know everything.
Because you can't learn everything at a 15-minute doctor's appointment. 

Parents want to know why because they love their child.
They want to know about all options so that they don't worry.
They want to feel confident that they have done all they can for their child.

If your child has been diagnosed with an endocrine condition
- or you're simply concerned that your child has a diagnosis -

and you're looking for more in-depth explanation,
If you feel that your doctor dismisses your concern,
Or if you just want to know more about causes and treatments of:
slow growth and short stature, 

Hashimoto's thyroiditis or hypothyroidism, 
precocious or rapidly progressive puberty, 
adrenal concern including congenital adrenal hyperplasia,
unexplained weight gain and insulin resistance,
PCOS, absent or irregular periods, or hormonal concerns

First, click on a Learn About link above.
Learn about a 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.

If you have more questions, schedule an appointment with Dr. Lerner.
Review what you've researched, or heard, or observed in a two-hour conversation with
board-certified pediatric endocrinologist, pediatrician, and parent 
with decades of experience with medications, supplements, and alternative therapies.

Dr. Shulamit Lerner will discuss all of your concerns with you,
answering all of your questions and explaining to you what you need and want to know. 

Dr. Lerner helps parents turn worry into knowledge, education into confidence.

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 button 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 can review 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.
