Specialties

Dr. Joel A Hahnke has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Concerned Mom for her child

We have been with Dr. Hanhke for almost 2 years and we could not be happier. He is so kind and listens intently to both myself and my child. I read a comment from Feb 2012 and was completely "shocked" as to the negativaty made about Dr. Hahnke and the praise given to the other doctors. As everyone is aware we are all entitled to our own opinion, however, my experience with the "other" doctors mentioned was bordering on negligence; so I switched. We live in the USA and thank goodness for free choice. Thank you Dr. Hahnke for being the BEST endo doctor for my child.

Mom

Dr. Joel Hanke is very kind and compassionate. He will explain things to you that can be understood and doesn't use a lot of medical jargon. I never feel that he is rushing us out the door so that he can see his next patient. He will follow up with a phone call the next day if needed and he always has a smile on his face. If you need a pedicatric endocrinologist I highly recommend Dr. Hanke.

Takes a bull by the horns in a very kind & considerate manner

I had been taking my daughter to a different Endo and was basically blamed for everything, that she had diabetes, that I didn't know how to take care of her, I decided to change doctors becuase I was tired of banging my head against the wall. Dr. Hahnke was amazing from the time he walked in the door. He listens and takes everything into consideration. He is extrmly personable and wants to get your childs' blood sugars under control. My daughter went from a 12.7 A1C to a 9.6 in three months. He knows how to work insulin pumps and makes the changes accordingly.. mighty happy with Dr. H!!

Five Stars

We are new to the practice of Dr. hahnke. We have seen him a few times so far and are very pleased with him. I am impressed with the communication and he is friendly and listens to what our concerns are. I emailed him about a concern and got a response literally within the hour. It concerns me that the previous person commented so harshly about this doctor though. I wish they had said specifically what the problem is as it doesn't help to not tell us and make us wonder if he's such a bad doctor.
