Provider Bio down arrow

Dr. Jacqueline Velasco trained in New York and came to Marshfield because she was interested in being part of a small, tight-knit community. From the time she was young, she was interested in the medical field.

“I’m interested in the cases I see in this field,” she said. “I see children who have growth hormone deficiency, diabetes, thyroid disease, adrenal and gonadal disorders, and abnormal pubertal development.”

She is especially interested in genetic aspects of endocrine diseases and transgender health.

Her priority is to provide exceptional care and treatment to patients. She coordinates that care with a team of experts across multiple specialties. Dr. Velasco also makes sure to keep childrens' families involved and educated about the care of their loved ones.

“I treat everyone with sensitivity, kindness, and compassion,” she said. “That’s my principle in life.”

Dr. Velasco enjoys the opportunity to be involved in research because she is passionate about finding ways to improve health outcomes for her patients.

Dr. Velasco earned her medical degree from the Far Eastern University-Nicanor Reyes Medical Foundation in the Philippines. She completed her pediatric residency and internship at Nassau University Medical Center in New York. She also completed a fellowship in pediatric endocrinology at Winthrop University Hospital in New York.
