Specialties

Dr. Patricia A Powers 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.

Dr. Powers has been wonderful! Dr. Powers listened to my expectations as a parent and what I wanted for my son who was recently diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and then included me in the plans. Prior to Dr. Powers I was given healthcare information on a "need to know" basis and was told what to do. Dr. Powers has and continues to empower me to manager my sons care. I sing her praises!

A blessing in disguise

Dr. Powers was a Godsend to our family. She is most knowledgeable about our daughter's diabetes, her treatment and more than that, a wonderful source of education and support for my wife and myself. She has made herself available to us even on days off, when she's not on call, etc. How many doctors do you know that give patient's her cell phone number?
