Turner Syndrome Clinic
The Adults with Turner Syndrome Clinic is a transitional clinic designed to assist women with Turner Syndrome as they shift from the pediatric care setting to the adult setting. We have launched this clinic in close collaboration with the Great Heights Clinic at Children's Mercy Hospital, but we provide care to any woman with Turner Syndrome.
The clinic encompasses primary care and continuity care with the specialists, as both are needed throughout their lifetime. The needs of women with Turner Syndrome include women's health and reproductive/endocrine care, cardiac care, psychological support, and specialized audiological care. The first clinic was July 2018, and as the clinic develops, additional specialists will be enlisted. When patients come to the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, they will be seen by all the providers in a single day. The women will wait for their various appointments in a designated clinic area, which will allow them to garner support from each other. The same outstanding care that they received from Great Heights Clinic will be provided to them in this new setting.
The staff is as follows:
Family Medicine Physician- Kelsie Kelly, MD, MPH
Nurse Practitioner- Moya Peterson, PhD, APRN, FNP-BC
Psychologist- Krithika Malhotra, PhD
Audiologist- Lauren Mann, AuD CCC-A, FAAA
