Assistant Professor of Pediatrics

Rochelle Naylor, MD, is a pediatric endocrinologist, specializing in the care of children and adolescents with diabetes and other endocrine disorders, including disorders of growth and puberty, thyroid disease and adrenal disease.

An active researcher, Dr. Naylor focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of monogenic diabetes -- a rare form of diabetes caused by genetic mutations.
