Specialties

Dr. Ann K Kershnar 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.

  • Pediatrics

    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.

Not the best for kids

I went to this doctor as a young person and found that she was very harsh in her judgments. She was a little too brutal in her comments about weight and on a few visits I broke down in tears afterwards. Plus, she wasn't aware of common side effects of the medication she prescribed, so I thought the effects were my fault. After waiting forever in the exam room, she would come in and be dismissive of my concerns and opinions about my health. Basically, she was a competent doctor but probably not the best choice for a kid who is already sensitive and confused about their endocrine problems.

Dr. Kershnar always has a very long wait once you enter your room. We have averaged at least an hour for her each visit. Dr. Kershnar is a good doctor. She seems to ask for other doctor's advice whenever she has doubts about things. So far, we like her. Yes she is a little straight forward when it comes to getting you to lose weight and follow her advice, but it's for your own well being.
