Dr. Carrel diagnoses and treats children with a wide range of hormone conditions such as obesity, diabetes, growth disorders, thyroid problems and puberty issues. His special clinical interests include childhood growth disorders and obesity.

During initial visits, Dr. Carrel enjoys talking with his patients and families and getting to know them. He listens to their concerns, explains their conditions in plain language and outlines their treatment options.

When not providing direct patient care, Dr. Carrel researches children’s cardiovascular fitness and their risk for insulin resistance and diabetes.

During his free time, Dr. Carrel enjoys running, walking, gardening and reading.

I help children feel good about themselves. I teach them to be active and keep their bodies as strong and healthy as possible.
