Turner Syndrome Clinic at NYU Langone Hospital in Long Island
NYU Langone Hospital houses Long Island’s new Turner Syndrome Program. It is designed to assist pediatricians in caring for a child, teen and/or young adult with Turner Syndrome. Their specialists evaluate and treat children under the age of 25 with a genetic diagnosis of Turner’s.
The clinic’s primary doctors are Pediatric Endocrinologists, Dr. Paul Saenger and Dr. Siham Accacha. Their Endocrinology department leads a multidisciplinary team consisting of a Pediatric Endocrinologist, Pediatric Registered Dietician/Nutritionist and Pediatric Cardiologist, each of whom will be given the opportunity to meet and evaluate your child during a single scheduled session at two different locations. A summary with findings and suggestions will be forwarded to your child’s pediatrician for evaluation and management of this genetic condition. Depending on your insurance, you may pay one or multiple co-pays.
