Multi-specialty care in one convenient location

Endocrinology disorders in children require a team approach — engaging not only the child and their family, but also existing primary care providers and other needed pediatric specialties to ensure every child receives a treatment plan tailored to his or her unique needs.

Diabetes and Endocrinology at Pediatric Specialists of Virginia includes some of the region’s top pediatric endocrinologists, including Kathleen Link, MD, the director, who has been named as one of Washington’s Top Doctors for the last several years. In addition, the team offers a wide range of expertise in pediatric endocrinology, including psychological support.

We collaborate with many local Virginia health care providers, including the George Mason University Center for Psychological Services and the Inova Center for Wellness and Metabolic Health (formerly Inova Diabetes Center), to provide children and their families access to the best possible care close to home.
