When Dr. Satin-Smith started medical school, she wanted to be a geneticist. But the more time she spent in endocrinology, the more she discovered her passion in a field where she may not be able to cure patients but can make them feel better quickly. She ended up completing her fellowship in endocrinology at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Taking care of children with diabetes mellitus allows Dr. Satin-Smith to get to know her patients and their families very well as they negotiate the ups and downs of this chronic condition. “It is never easy but it is always rewarding, says Dr. Satin Smith. “Summer camp, family camp and all the activities we do outside of the office ensure that we develop the community that it takes to nurture these children into adulthood and good health.”
