Dr. Alan N Lindsay has the following 2 specialties
- Pediatric Endocrinology
Endocrinologists treat disorders related to our glands and the hormones they produce. Because hormones play a key role in the growth and development of children, these conditions often pose different threats to children than they do adults. That’s where a pediatric endocrinologist comes in.
They can diagnose and treat hormonal disorders such as abnormal thyroid function, growth complications and early or delayed puberty. Ambiguous genitals as well as ovarian and testicular dysfunction are also part of their expertise. Childhood obesity, diabetes and problems with low blood sugar also tie back to hormone function and may require consulting with a pediatric endocrinologist.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

I have two children who have been seeing Dr. Lindsay for almost 5 years and I'm in the process of finding a new doctor for them. I'm also type 1 for 31 years so I know a thing or two about this disease. He talks down to the parents like they don't know what they are talking about. He asked my 9 year old son how many times he checks his blood and got mad when I corrected my son from saying once a day to saying twice a day. We all have CGM's so you have to check twice a day to calibrate the CGM. He basically yelled at me that he was asking my son and not me. I informed him that I know he was asking my son but he is 9 and I know for a fact we check them both twice a day with a meter. I can't wait to get a new doctor for my kids. The staff is not friendly and I had to wait over an hour to see the doctor last time.
I was a patient of Dr Lindsay for many years as a child and he was awful. Emotional abuse of a child is a serious thing and only after finding a new doctor did I learn that I would be about to live a normal life. Absolutely horrifying experiences with that monster!
