Specialties

Dr. Susan Raghavan 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.

One Star

My daughter was seen in this office for a few years. When Dr. Raghavan stated that my daughter needed her thyroid removed I agreed to proceed after she had a 2nd opinion. She said that when my daughter's medical records were sent out for a 2nd opinion appt her office would no longer see her. I was appalled that at her office you cannot ask for a 2nd opinion with out being kicked out. I am a nurse myself and have not heard of a doctor doing that before.

Rude

My son needed growth hormone shots due to a growth hormone deficiency. I was no longer able to afford the expensive medication due to a change in insurance. She gave me a list of charities to call to help pay for the expenses. Although I did call each one, I was not able to receive help from any of them. Dr. Raghavan implied that I did not try hard enough. I felt she believed it was my fault he was not getting any medication because I didn't prioritize the situation. This was definitely not the way felt. Another time I set a follow-up appointment at the time of check-out six months in advance, but accidentally forgot to mark it on my calendar. I received a phone call by an upset receptionist wanting to know why I had not showed up. I apologized and told her I had forgotten. Thinking back on it I recall that most doctors' offices will call the day before to remind you of an appointment, especially if it has been made that far in advance. For these and other reasons I chose not to see Dr. Raghavan any more

Need more information.

I felt Dr. Raghavan did a great job diagnosing my child's condition. I just wish I could have gotten more helpful information for home -- websites on recipes, what to give my child to rebuild when their body is depleted after competing in sports. I was very frustrated to not get answers for those concerns and still am trying to figure out what to do 8 months later.

Office staff including nurses are excellent. We are happy that our time exposed to this Dr. has been limited. Knowledgeable, but not a real people person.
