Dr. Rachel C Edelen has the following 3 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.
- Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Edelen and her staff are amazing! I feel so blessed and privileged to have them here to take such wonderful care of our son! He was dealt a hard blow being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at only one years old, but thanks to Dr. Edelen and her wonderful staff he is doing great and leads a fairly normal life. My husband and I are also greatful for the training that was given to us so we could take care of our son because we were both clueless! He just had his 8th birthday and has not yet been back to the hospital due to his diabetes and that says a lot, I believe! Thank You so much for all you do Dr. Edelen & staff!
This doctor is discriminatory towards the poor. Because she is the only pediatric endo in Rapid City, she is on a power trip. Most of the visit was spent talking about herself and she has done nothing to help my child. I take my child 5 hours away to see an endo in another town just to avoid this so called Dr.
