I’m so glad you are here! Parker Place is the culmination of a vision I have been forming over the last few years. As a Pediatric Endocrinologist, I have been working with children and adolescents for over 10 years and very much enjoying helping them reach a healthy place in their lives. I have treated all types of endocrine issues including thyroid problems, poor growth, puberty issues, Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes, and other hormone abnormalities. While doing so I realized that many of my patients’ medical issues would benefit from healthy lifestyle changes such as improving their diet, exercising more, or getting the proper amount of sleep. I tried to discuss these healthy habits with all my patients but in the context of a busy medical practice it was difficult to give these important topics the time they needed. And so, the idea of Parker Place was born!

What to Expect at Parker Place?

Here at Parker Place you will have the opportunity to meet with me for an extended consultation visit and you will never feel rushed. We will focus on how nutrition, stress management, sleep habits and exercise can impact your health with an emphasis on your specific medical issues. Together we will create an individualized healthy lifestyle plan with goals that you feel are achievable. Parker Place will offer many opportunities for you to start reaching those goals. In addition, during follow-up visits we will discuss any barriers preventing you from carrying out your healthy lifestyle plan and work to find ways to meet your goals or adjust them to keep you healthy but also fit into your life.
