Dr. Boston specializes in caring for infants, children and adolescents with endocrine or hormone problems. These include problems with growth, puberty, thyroid, adrenal and any other disorder related to the hormone glands. Dr. Boston also treats both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in children. As a specialist in pediatric diabetes, Dr. Boston takes a developmental and family centered approach to the care of diabetes in children and adolescents. This approach requires multiple diabetes team members specially trained in the care of kids with diabetes. These pediatric diabetes team members are all available at the Harold Schnitzer Diabetes Health Center. Dr. Boston is also very involved with the Gales Creek Camp for Children with Diabetes that offers a summer camping experience for children with type 1 diabetes and their families.

In his spare time, Dr. Boston enjoys spending time staying in shape with a weekly soccer game. He also enjoys traveling with his family and getting away to the gorgeous outdoors we are all blessed with in the Pacific Northwest. And when he really wants to get away for some quality time, he spends time sailing land yachts on the Alvord Desert in Southwest Oregon or on his fishing boat out of Newport. No cell phones allowed.

    Dr. Boston was excellent and we appreciated his care. We had a long delay in waiting for the doctor and it turned out he was dealing with a patient in ICU which is understandable but it would have been nice for the staff to inform us of the delay.
