We are a unique team of specialized pediatric endocrinologists, pediatric urologists, endocrine nurses, social workers, clinical dietician, clinical child psychologist, and coordinators who are dedicated to providing excellent care, treatment, education, advocacy and support to patients and families with CAH.
Our program practices a multidisciplinary approach with specialists who provide comprehensive medical and surgical care, at one of the top children’s hospitals in the U.S.!
Our doctors also work together on various research studies to advance the knowledge and treatment of CAH, and are regular speakers about CAH in Southern California and around the country. We love to talk with families and patients at conferences for CARES Foundation, MAGIC Foundation, and Adrenal Insufficiency United.
