Child Growth Specialist & Pediatric Endocrinologist

Tackle Growth Disorders, Early Puberty, and more for your child!

Hope Blooms Here

Childhood is often measured by outgrown shoes, pencil marks on doorframes, and handprints on Mother’s Day gifts. But if the sizes and inches that mark your child’s development refuse to budge or rise faster than expected, it may be a sign there’s a glitch in their hormone production.

When you’re looking for a trusted pediatric endocrinologist in Orlando, FL, turn to The Endocrine Co. We specialize in personalized endocrinology care to bring your child’s body back in balance and improve their quality of life. There’s no waiting at a hospital when you get in touch with The Endocrine Co.


Conditions We Treat

Our team provides customized solutions that target the root cause of your child’s symptoms, offering the relief your child deserves.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Growth Disorders

If your child’s development doesn’t align with the growth rate of their classmates or their pediatrician detects variations in normal growth patterns, our pediatric endocrinologist in Orlando, FL can help determine what’s speeding up or slowing down hormone production.

Early Puberty

Boys who present signs of puberty before age 9 or girls who do before age 8 are often diagnosed with precocious puberty. The condition usually doesn’t present a health risk, but may be a sign of an underlying health condition and could potentially lead to psychosocial concerns, as well as it could compromise final height.

Delayed Puberty

Teens can feel self-conscious around kids their age if their development stalls. While some kids are just late bloomers, others may require hormone therapy transiently to jump-start puberty. In some instances, children could be in permanent need of hormone replacement.

Thyroid Disorders

The thyroid plays a vital role in a child’s growth, and conditions like hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism can impact their development. With the right medication, your child can help keep their thyroid in check.

Medically-Supervised Weight Loss

Weight gain isn’t always caused by poor nutrition or a lack of activity – hormones can often be the culprit. Depending on the child’s medical history, Dr. Penny can recommend an action plan to treat the issue.

Dr Pauley is an answer to prayer. We have searched and seen several Endocrinologists for our child. And she is by far the most caring, professional and supportive physician we have ever experienced. She makes sure our child is empowered to be informed and apart of decision making process for disease management. She is extremely patient and timely with any our questions or concerns. My phone calls are answered by HER , not an on-call attendant or a response from an on-line portal. In addition , Dr Pauley goes above and beyond with a complete care approach. She not only treats the endocrine issues but looks at the complete picture of our child including quality of life and research to provide a unique care plan. . We have never had a doctor care so much and be so attentive to even the small details.

Amazing Doctor. Makes every patient’s experiences feel unique and understood. Every question I have about my disorders from the serious to the kind of stupid she answers with the upmost honesty, and always makes sure I fully understand what I am getting into, especially when dealing with medication changes. Dr. Pauley answer extremely quick as well if I have ever left her a message, it is normally answered within that day if not that hour.

I am so thankful to have found Dr. Pauley to treat my teenager - where my teen isn’t just a number and isn’t just a reflection of her lab numbers - she’s a person with feelings and goals. Dr. Pauley works very well with my teen to identify and set goals, and follows up and checks in with her. She takes our feelings into consideration when developing a treatment plan. As a parent it’s so great to know that if I need anything at all, Dr. Pauley is just a text or phone call away. Dr. Pauley’s responsiveness and level of care is second to none. If you want a Dr who feels more like family as opposed to just someone who writes your prescriptions, come see Dr. Pauley!

I tried Dr Pauely`s weight loss program after seeing my wife have great results from it. After only a week I was down a few pounds already and my cravings were a lot less. I highly recommend trying her program if your having a hard time dropping weight. She also checks in weekly to make sure I am doing okay. Try it! You won't be disappointed!

After having my son I decided I needed a little help losing the weight and sought out Dr Pauley's help. I had heard through friends that were on the program of their great results. After a few short weeks I was down 10 pounds, and the weight continues to come off weekly! Through Dr Pauley's guided program, I did not have any side effects and she was there every step of the way checking in on me and giving advise so that I could reach my weight loss goals safely. I could not be happier and highly recommend her weight loss program!
