Dr. Gad B Kletter 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.

One Star

Glad everyone seems to have had a good rapport with Dr. Kletter. Sorry I can't say the same. Was referred to Dr. Kletter for amenorrhea several years ago. During the appointment I was told to lay down and was then felt up around the sternum and upper pubic area for some seconds. As a teenager was too naive and timid to say stop. Fortunately the incident does not affect me today, but I hope no other patient of Dr. Kletter has experienced anything similar. In my case a week's worth of over-the-counter black cohosh was all I needed- something no doctor ever mentioned to me.

If your child has to see a pediatric endocrinologist, Dr. Kletter is great

My daughter was referred to Dr. Kletter for precocious pubert at age 7. We were nervous, to say the least, about what the diagnosis might mean. Dr. Kletter and his staff was great -- they took an incredible amount of time to explain everything *and make sure we understood*. Our first visit was more than an hour long, and Dr. Kletter stayed with us until all of my questions were answered, without making me feel like I was taking too much time. I left there feeling like there was a plan to follow and that he cares about the outcome for my daughter. Moreover, he knows how the insurance system works, and helps make sure the care is covered before you start, or that you are well aware of the financial implications of the various treatment options. Negatives -- Getting in for an appointment is a little bureaucratic but it is well worth it. His accent is a little hard to understand at times, but it's apparent that he knows what he's talking about, and he has a very caring heart that comes across with the kids.If you *have* to see a pediatric endocrinologist, he's a great choice.
