Have Pediatric Questions? Ask a Pediatrician.
Hello, From what you post, yes this does need the attention of a pediatric endocrinologist. Your son's pediatrician may do some screening blood tests of hormone levels prior to that visit.
Hello, In general would try to get medical insurance ASAP. This can wait until you have insurance that covers your son, but would not wait longer than 3-6 months. No idea how much these cost but too much (not trying to be "flip"). Has your son started puberty? What are his hgt and wgt?
Is your son healthy, any chronic issues?
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX he be evaluated by a pediatric endocrinologist. Are you moving to an area that has a larger childrens' hospital with specialists?
I don't know that area. Major pediatric centers in Gainesville and Orlando, and of course Miami, not sure about Ft Myers. Best of luck,
