Video visits for pediatric endocrinology

Get specialized endocrinology care for your child from the comfort of home through video visits

Kids’ bodies are in a constant state of change, which means specialized care is needed when there’s a hormonal health issue at play. Video visits through Park Nicollet offer a convenient way to get that special care.

Just like an office visit, video visits bring you face-to-face with a board-certified pediatric endocrinologist, a doctor who specializes in treating children and teens with diabetes, growth issues, thyroid conditions and other hormonal disorders.

During your appointment, your pediatric endocrinologist will listen to your concerns, ask questions to understand your child’s symptoms and medical history, and work with you to create a tailored treatment plan. Video visits are billed the same as in-person visits.

Easy access to quality pediatric endocrinology care is at your fingertips. Don’t wait. Make an appointment today.
