Southwest Pediatric Endocrinology
Here for your child since 2000.
After 17 years at Phoenix Children's Hospital, 15 of them as the medical director of the endocrine department, Dr. Perelman wanted to open a private practice to be able to offer more personalized service to patients and families. In 2000 Southwest Pediatric Endocrinology opened its doors in a small office on Scottsdale Road just north of Shea.
Dr. Perelman was right in his belief that patients and their parents would prefer more personalized care and attention than what was offered at a large hospital type of facility. The practice grew quickly and it was obvious that SWPE would soon outgrow its original office space. Dr. Perelman rented another office at the other end of the building. This worked for a little while, but he realized it was not going to be permanent solution, just a temporary fix. In 2006 he moved the entire practice to 9700 N. 91st Street, Building B. Originally SWPE shared space with Scottsdale Healthcare Endocrinology Insitute & Diabetes Center, but again seeing the opportunity to improve and provide the best care possible for his patients he moved down the hall to SWPE current location in Suite B210. Now SWPE patients can come to an office completely dedicated to the care of pediatric patients--with room to expand!
When Dr. Perelman made the decision to move from his original office, he also made the decision to open a satellite office in the east valley and hire a new physician. In 2007 Joel Hahnke, MD, FAAP joined the SWPE team and the Mesa Office at 1450 S. Dobson Road, Suite A204 was opened.
Dr. Hahnke is also a Phoenix Children's Hospital alumn. Dr. Hahnke completed his pediatric residency and his pediatric endocrinology fellowship programs at PCH. His philosphy about personalized one-on-one care fit perfectly with the mission of SWPE.
Since April of 2002, as many long term patients know, Ms. Cecilia Villareal has been at the helm of office operations. Cecilia spent 22 years with First Interstate Bank and brought a wealth of managerial expertise with her when she joined SWPE.
