get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I get to take care of infants, children, and adolescents with diabetes, growth and puberty disorders, thyroid and adrenal problems among other disorders that affect the endocrine system.

I like working with kids because...

in each and every patient I see I am given the opportunity to help them reach their highest potential.

I chose to work at Dayton Children's because...

of our mission to be of service to children and their families.

Dayton Children's is special because...

of the caring people who work here.

Dr. Almazan is always very thorough and asks questions, friendly, and just a really good doctor. We appreciate that. My daughter's hypothyroid, as I am myself, so she explains everything and we just, we love her. Thanks. Bye.
