About the Clinic
The clinic provides multidisciplinary care for children with Turner Syndrome. Patients have the benefit of seeing multiple dedicated professionals in one visit. In addition, families have the chance to meet other people with Turner Syndrome in order to gain social and emotional support.
Endocrinologists, Dr. Susan Myers and Dr. Sherida Tollefsen, will see patients in this clinic. In addition, Cardiologist, Dr. Renu Peterson will be available to see patients as needed. Many of our other departments also offer Monday appointments at the Medical Center for your convenience. Of course if you prefer to continue to see your child’s Endocrinologist or other Specialists at another location that option remains open to you.
Fun for Kids!
Turner Syndrome Support for St. Louis has offered to facilitate small group activities for the children and an opportunity for parents to gather, talk, and share information. The group provides a complimentary Welcome Packet full of great resources for new patients and children of the clinic! They will be gathering in the Barron Room, the room to the right before you enter the Cafeteria, from 8AM-12PM on the days clinic is held. Please stop by and meet them, either before or after your appointment! We also hope to organize “Lunch and Learn” sessions in the near future.
We look forward to seeing you in our new clinic!
