Dr. Stephanie C Hsu has the following 3 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.
- Diagnostic Radiology
Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.

Dr. Hsu had our son completely comfortable even though he knew he had to get a blood test (he's 5). She was very thorough and extremely thoughtful in her follow up on his tests. She was quick to respond, easy to talk to, and very nonjudgemental.
I took my son in for a consult after being referred from my family doctor. The appointment wait was about a month, not bad for a specialist. Dr. Hsu was very kind and spent a lot of time with us talking about concerns with my son. My only advice would be to hire another staff member. The girl at the front desk, although very nice, seemed overwhelmed and much to busy to provide great support for patients. My son overall enjoyed Dr. Hsu and she respected our wish to not let our son know the reason he was being seen until after the holidays. I look forward to taking my other child to see Dr. Hsu.
Our teen son had 2 differing diagnosis from 2 Ped Endos--both of which said to do nothing for my son's delayed Puberty and low hormone levels. He was continually tired and low functioning so we continued to pursue someone who could help him. Dr. Hsu, who comes from John Hopkins was a Godsend! She ran appropriate tests, treated him and his bone growth age caught up with his real age, he began functioning normally and was feeling good once more. Without knowledge and expertise, he would have continued to feel miserable. Though a sensitive teen, he was treated with privacy and respect. He too is grateful for a caring and intelligent doctor!
My daugher had been with the large endrocrinology clinic in Denver and began to feel like a number and not a patient, we were in an out and not heard for any of our concerns. We found Dr. Hsu and my daughter isn't intimidated and feels like she can honestly discuss any difficulties with her. She spent a lot of time talking to us and spoke directly to my daughter and treated her concerns with importance. She is very personable, understanding, caring, and kind. I can't say I love her office staff, they can be abrupt and heartless, but when you find a good doc, you put up with these imperections.
I took my so to Dr. Hsu and despite the fact that it took almost a month to get in to see her I kept my appointment since apparently there are very few pediatric endocrinologists. In the middle of my visit with her she answered her cell phone and proceeded to have a conversation (that was no emergency) for about five minutes. I probably should have left at this time, but my concern for son out weighed my discuss. I called to get my son's lab results however they wouldn't give them to me until they all got back. When I finally complained to my Pediatrician I got a phone call back from Dr. Hsu who proceed to tell me that my son was fine and to follow up in six months. The following day I got a phone call from my Pediatrician who had consulted with another pediatric endocrinologist who was very concerned and wanted to see my son immediately. Don't waste your time. Office staff is rude and doesn't follow through with requests and obviously she is too busy.
