Each child is unique, which is why we focus on individualized care at Phelps

Children are physically and emotionally different from adults. We understand communicating with children about their health (and with parents about their child’s health) takes a unique approach. At Phelps, we believe it’s important to combine compassion with first-class treatment when helping the children in our community.

We offer comprehensive inpatient and outpatient consultation, treatment, and management for children living with a variety of endocrine disorders, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Thyroid Disease
  • Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH)
  • Disorders of the pituitary gland (growth)
  • Puberty
  • Calcium, phosphorus, and osteoporosis

Parents are encouraged to fully participate in their child’s care
