“Although I still do general pediatrics, my practice is devoted almost exclusively to pediatric endocrinology and childhood diabetes. Pediatric endocrinology is a particularly interesting field in that it intimately ties in with general pediatrics, dealing with growth and development and hormonal problems that may interfere with these normal processes. I am fortunate to work with a wonderful nurse who has expertise in many areas and helps me run our diabetes clinic.” as stated by the doctor.
Born in Jerusalem, Israel, Dr. Fass attended Yeshiva University in New York and received his medical degree from the State University of New York, Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn. He completed his internship and residency in pediatrics at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in New York, Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital at Dartmouth Medical School, and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Medical Center. He then completed his fellowship in pediatric endocrinology at UCLA Medical Center, followed by an additional year of training in diabetes at Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston.
Among his involvement in regional continuing medical education for physicians, he chairs the yearly pediatric symposium. Moreover, he is board-certified in both pediatrics and pediatric endocrinology by the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP), which is an independent, nonprofit organization whose certificate is recognized throughout the world as a credential signifying a high level of physician competence. Certification by the ABP has one objective, to promote excellence in medical care for children and adolescents.
Pediatric endocrinology is a medical subspecialty dealing with disorders of the endocrine glands, such as variations of physical growth and sexual development in childhood, diabetes, and many more. Pediatric endocrinologists, depending upon the age range of the patients they treat, care for patients from infancy to late adolescence and young adulthood. They treat Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, growth disorders, pubertal abnormalities, obesity, differences of sex development, bone and mineral disturbances, hypoglycemia, and other disorders relating to the adrenal, parathyroid, thyroid, and pituitary glands.
In recognition of his achievements, Dr. Fass has published articles and chapters in many areas relating to his field, as well as has contributed to the permanent archival collection of the American Academy of Pediatrics Library. He takes great satisfaction from his medical practice and greatly enjoys working with patients. He also takes pleasure in being with family and friends.
