Dr. Mitchell E Geffner 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.

after 30 years and many moves in my life you have been the doctor I base all my doctors on. And there as been many. You have always taken the time with me and my family for over my 15 years as a loyal patient. With you as my doctor as a infant to 15 years old. My mom depended on you at all hours of the day or night and YOU would call her back with the answers that made it easier to take care of me . When my family moved to Oregon we still came down south two times a year to see you. You not only saved my life you saved a family. My mother has always said to me we need more doctors like Dr. Geffner and I agree.
Dr. Geffner is the most reliable, knowledgeable and informative doctor we had, with my son's rare and critical condition I always had the peace of mind and confidence that my son was in very good hands. I would say that despite doctor Geffner's very busy schedule don't let that discourage you he very well knows what he's doing and though he might not show it but he always care. You must trust him....I did God bless him.
Love Dr G!!! He is so smart, patient, thorough. My son started seeing him when he was 4 and a half and he is now 17 and 5 ft 10 and thank g-d no side effects! He is a very pleasant, knowledgeable and thorough doctor. Only downside is he books up a long time ahead of time (very popular) but if you can get in, you know you are with the best!
