Sample Pediatric Gastroenterologists Reviews
"My son started going to see Dr.
when he was just a few month old. The office staff and doctors are awesome. They are very aggressive with there treatments and do everything they can to make your child better. My son was able to stop his medicine and continue on with a healthy, happy life after a short ...more while. I would recommend this office to anyone."
"First viist he listened to my concerns. He asked questions about minor things that I never thought important like mouth sores she had once. And leg pains which I was always told were growing pains. Did some labs which we reviewed on the next visit which suggested an inflammatory process. He did an endoscopy and colonoscopy and found Crohn's disease. ...more Started treatment at the time of the procedure and my daughter is already gaining weight and feeeling more energetic. We will stick with him for her unfortunately lifelong treatment. Too bad he only takes care of children."
"He explained things very well, was very good with my daughter and concerned about her care. We had a scheduling problem with the hospital administration but I do not want it to reflect on the doctor. I will use them again in the future."
"She's very hard to get into but she's worth the wait. She listened to everything I had to say about what was going wrong with my daughter. Then she did a blood test and checked for a lot of different things. It came back positive with celiac disease. So then she recommended that we do an intestinal biopsy. So we put our daughter in a ...more one day surgery and she did well."
Office was easy to schedule with.
Staff was friendly until we met with the "doctor."
Billing ... they billed us about $45 MORE than quoted amount for the exact visit requested. Nothing was done except a look over for the
: no labs, shots, or anything else. We were cash customers, so this really irritated ...more us, especially since we had to redo the appointment with another provider, which was $70 less for the same exact appointment.
... HORRIBLE BEDSIDE MANNER AND SELF-SUPERIOR ATTITUDE!!!!!!!!!
Absolutely NOT the practice you want to use if you want to use a non-traditional (prolonged, delayed, or skipped) immunization regardless of your reasons why. They will NOT see a child that is not up-to-date on CDC-recommended immunizations.
If you're a person who will want the doctor to do all the thinking when it comes to your child's health, then this might be the perfect place for you. It's "pleasant" in plastic sort of way ... until you aren't an ideal patient/parent.
CARE of patients and communication about concern ... NON-EXISTENT in
. Other doctors in the practice might be better, but I'd always be leery of her presence. She called Child Protective Services on us 13 days after our visit because we hadn't scheduled a follow-up appointment with her. She never once called to ask why. (We really hated her, and had already scheduled another 2-month check up with another pediatrician.) The full details are in another review of her specifically.
treated my teenage son for some stomach problems. She was very knowledgeable and explained everything very thoroughly. Her entire staff were very kind and caring and listened to a worried mothers' fears. She saw my son in her office for an initial examination then later did a procedure at
Hospital. ...more I can't recommend her enough, she was awesome."
"She was very thorough with us and didn’t see us as silly parents. We felt like we had all the time with her. She answered our questions and told us how to get a hold of her if we needed to. She was very good. The staff was excellent, very friendly and patient with us though they were busy."
"Took my son to his office almost two years ago. Everytime we go to see him, he feels my child's stomach, weighs him, and sends us on our way. My son is not doing fine, but no one can diagnose him. He asks us general questions about my child, nothing specific, and then says everything looks fine before he runs out the door to another appointment. ...more I would appreciate it if the doctor would at least pretend that he's trying to figure out if something is wrong."
did tests and prescribed medicine for our son's gastroenteritis and ulcer. My son did not improve.
I called repeated times to let the office know that he was not improving. We never spoke to Dr.
again. A nurse returned our call and instructed us to double our son's meds until he was taking ...more 21 pills per day without improvement.
We took our son to Children's Hospital in Minneapolis with a much different result. This Dr. called us himself to report test results and check on progress. Things improved dramatically.
may just be too busy to return phone calls or think about cases that that aren't right in front of him. We will drive the extra miles to Minneapolis anytime we need pediatric gastroenterology."
"On our first appointment Dr. Ibarguen didn't seem very interested in having much of a discussion about our babys issues. When I pulled out a list of symptoms I wanted to go over with him he turned away from me, made a funny sound, picked up his pen and said, "What symptoms are on that paper that you haven't told me about." I was ...more taken aback by his rudeness but when he told us we should have an Endoscope done we agreed because we were anxious to get our baby to feel better, and from what we read he had many years experience in this field. The Endoscope went very smoothly and quickly but didnt show that anything was wrong. On our next appointment he recommended medication, and again when I wanted to discuss some things with him he rudely stated, "Are you sure you don't just have a fussy kid?" Needless to say we never went back to him."
