Helen Bui MD FRCPC Associate Director of Pediatric Endocrinology

Fun fact about me 

I love to be a personal stylist for my friends, since I cannot be a stylist to the stars.

I love working with children and their families because 
they teach me something new everyday, and I find it a privilege to accompany them on their path, whether it is for a few days or for several years.
