Experienced, board-certified pediatric endocrinologists and diabetes doctors right in your community
Conditions of the endocrine system can often seem complex and confusing. And when they impact your child, it can be alarming and overwhelming. At Overland Park Regional Medical Center’s Pediatric Specialty Clinic, we understand that. Our entire team of physicians, advance practice professionals, nurses and support staff consistently strives to provide a calm, reassuring and child-friendly environment.
Led by a long-tenured, board-certified and fellowship-trained pediatric endocrinologist, the Overland Park, Ks Pediatric Endocrinology Clinic offers comprehensive care for all endocrine disorders – diabetes to growth issues, puberty disorders, adrenal and thyroid gland issues and more.
Our team understands the special nature of children’s medicine and all that it entails. We are experienced, compassionate and committed to delivering the best care possible.
Above all, we want you to know you your child is in good hands.
Convenient, accessible expertise
Our care philosophy centers on making your child’s care experience smooth and easy with the goal of delivering great care when and where you need it.
- Our Endocrinology Clinic is conveniently located adjacent to Overland Park Regional Medical Center giving you easy access from the doctor’s office to any diagnostic and treatment resources you need – all in one place. Endocrinology is in the same location as our other children’s specialties, which allows our physicians to easily collaborate on care, and provides you with a single location for all your child’s healthcare.
- Your child will always see the same specialist – an experienced and highly trained endocrinologist – whether in the clinic or hospital setting. We believe this continuity ensures a level of comfort in children and parents that promotes the best outcomes.
- If your child needs to be seen, we do our best to work him or her into the schedule.
- Our office staff excels at navigating through insurance coverage and is always happy to assist you.
An unmatched approach to team-oriented care
As part of Overland Park Regional Medical Center’s pediatric services, our approach to care is multispecialty and team-oriented.
- In children with endocrine disorders, especially little ones in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), there may be multiple health issues going on, which necessitates close collaboration in care. In those cases, we work closely with other specialists to provide cohesive care.
- We are also close to the hospital’s pediatric ER, Johnson County’s only ER to include a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU).
- We are committed to partnering with your child’s pediatrician to ensure open communication, collaboration and your peace of mind.
- A common issue for young endocrinology patients is a gap in care as young adults transition from pediatric to adult care. We specialize in bridging that gap to ensure a teen doesn’t suffer from a lack of care when he or she leaves the pediatrician.
Partners in care
We firmly believe that whenever possible, your child needs to be a partner in his or her care. This is especially true with young diabetes patients who must learn to manage their condition. We work to include your child in discussions and decisions, which helps increase confidence, independence and a willingness to comply with treatments.
