I am a clinical pediatric endocrinologist with outpatient clinics available at Texas Children's West Campus. I enjoy caring for infants, children, and adolescents with diabetes as well as general endocrine concerns, to include growth, puberty, thyroid, adrenal, pituitary, and calcium disorders. I am currently involved in research to better understand age related differences in Type 1 Diabetes. I have a special clinical interest in caring for children diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at a very young age (infants, toddlers, and pre-schoolers).
