Academic Title: Professor

Research Center: Center for Clinical and Translational Research

Catherine Pihoker, MD, is chief of the Division of Endocrinology and Diabetes and attending physician at Seattle Childrens Hospital and Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine. Her clinical focus is inpatient and outpatient attending for endocrinology and diabetes. Her main research interests include investigating factors that predict the clinical course of diabetes, diabetes typology and improving outcomes of children with diabetes.

Dr. Pihoker is also interested in the impact on children of being overweight and living sedentary lifestyles, and she is involved in proposals studying the quality of life and metabolic measures in the general population as well as in cancer survivors. Other research interests include endocrine dysfunction in childhood cancer survivors and hypothalamic-pituitary function in children with tumors in the pituitary region. The studies Pihoker has been involved with include the SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth, TrialNet and the Type 1 Diabetes Genetics Consortium. Her teaching activities include serving as fellowship director, and didactic and direct teaching of resident physicians, medical students and support staff.

Recommendations

  • Kitt Renton, WA 04.23.13

    Dr. Pihoker has been providing expert care to our daughter since she began throwing seizures at only 3 months of age! Where other doctors had struggled, Dr. P. made a quick and correct diagnosis of a very rare but treatable condition, hypoparathyroidism. My kid is now a healthy teenager and living a normal life, thanks in no small part to Dr. Pihoker and the CHMC team. The gratitude I feel for not only the knowledge and experience, but the unfailing kindness and patience with parental questions and concerns, can barely be put into words. Dr. Pihoker is the best!

  • Jeanne Milton, WA 03.31.11

    I can recommend Dr. Pihoker without reservation for any patient who needs to see an endocrine or diabetes specialist. She works with families and children in a supportive way which allows the child to gradually take on appropriate self-care, and encourages families to learn about their child's condition to help make decisions about long term treatment plans (or tweeks of plans as new needs come up). Although Dr. Pihoker doesn't waste appointment time on chit-chat, we feel she shows genuine concern and interest in our son as her patient, and has become a partner in his care. Our son has been her patient for about 12 of his 14 years of diabetes care at Children's and we are truly thankful for her guidance over the years.
