Dr. Mahmoud B Kabbani has the following 2 specialties
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.

Stop doing your research and just go see Dr. Kabbani! I had been taking my son to another area pediatric endocrinologist who frustrated me beyond words. It takes months to get an appointment with that other doctor (even for follow-up visits), yet we were able to get an appointment (after school!) with Dr. Kabbani within a week. Unlike the other ped endo, Dr. Kabbani took a significant amount of time talking to us, explaining his concerns, and describing the potential treatments depending on the results of the lab work results. After the lab results came back, Dr. Kabbani then called and spent 15 minutes describing what he learned and reassuring us. In contrast, the other ped endo refuses to explain anything until he has lab results (leaving you to fret for 2 weeks), and then he uses a "patient portal" to post those results and offer a few fragmented comments without a full explanation. With that other ped endo, the doctor-patient contact was as limited as possible, leaving me with more questions than I arrived with. Dr. Kabbani is a smart man, spots the crux of the problem quickly, and he'll take as much time as you need to explain the intricacies. Dr. Kabbani was originally our "second opinion," but he will be the doc we will use in the future.
I appreciate the fact Dr. Kabbani doesn't drag his patients back to the office to discuss lab results or charges an additional fee if my child has a more complicated disease that requires more work than others. He truly cares for my child and spends amble time each visit educating and explaining what is happening with my child.
Dr. Kabbani and his staff at PEDC are awesome! I love how Dr. Kabbani takes care of my 3 children all with Type I diabetes. I have went to two pediatric endocrinologist before learning about him and their is no comparison. He is phenomenal! The way he explained diabetes to my children and how to live with it and still live a healthy and fun lifestyle was truly touching as well as effective! Thank you Dr. Kabbani. You are truly the best and my family are all grateful for your service!
