Blew us off, grossly misdiagnosed my daughter

My toddler had been diagnosed with GERD, GI dysmotility, feeding/oral aversion and other GI and immunological disorders. She was underweight, vomiting often and not eating. We had a GI team (consisting of a GI and a feeding team) we loved at another hospital; however, they stopped accepting our insurance. We were referred to Dr. Mones and we were told he was highly regarded. We went for our first visit with Dr. Mones and, after he flipped through her chart (literally), he snapped the folder shut and told us there was "nothing" wrong with her and that my husband and I needed to "learn how to deal with normal toddler feeding issues". He was quite arrogant in his manner and actually rolled his eyes at us at one point when we questioned his quick dismissal of her GI issues. He said her vomiting was "behavioral" and recommended a book on toddler feeding by Ellyn Satter. He further said that we should discontinue feeding thearpy with her and that she would "eat when she was hungry". We followed his advice and our daughter wound up in the hospital with severe dehydration and had lost over a pound in less than a week (she was 17 months old at the time). We ended up running back to our old GI team (paying out of pocket), who continued testing and found that she has SEVERE gastric emptying issues. She is now G-tube fed, on appropriate medications and thriving. We contacted Dr. Mones' office regarding this and again, he blew us off. STAY AWAY FROM THIS DOCTOR. HE IS BAD NEWS.
