Specialties

Dr. Dominick A Barone has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Mercy proves to be the BEST once again.

Dr. Barone is a new doctor at Children's Mercy. We have been to Mercy many times and it has always been a very good experience but after a couple of recent Urgent Care visits we saw this Dr. Barone and I had to comment. He is the BEST DOCTOR we have every experienced ANYWHERE. My kids think he is great and he has such a way with even the baby. she just took to him immediately. Why can't my regular pediatrician be like the Mercy Pediatrician at East Urgent Care?

one great doctor

I found Dr. Barone by doing a search on the internet. I was worried about finding a doctor this way, but we are new to the area and don't know people yet. In years past back in PA I knew some of the nurses at the local hospitals. I still think that's the best way to find good doctors is ask a nurse where she goes. This time had to rely on this website and turns out was a good resource. I read all the things people said about Dr. Barone and let me tell you, they were all understatements. This pediatrician is even better than the one I loved back home. I chose him because people said good things and he went to school in PA. I figured if he's from back home then he must be OK, and I was right. Well, wrong, he's so much more than OK. If anyone in the whole Phoenix area really wants the overall all nicest and most knowledgeable Pediatrician, I suggest you visit with Dr. Dominick Barone. He's a DO which I was another reason I chose him. My last Pediatrician wasn't a DO but my OB and my Family docs were and they really are well rounded docs that are not just drug pushers, so I figured try out a DO pediatrician this time. again, he gets my highest recommendation. I doubt there are many like this around anymore. You have to see for yourself, there are just so many wonderful aspects of our visit. I have 3 kids, and they even think he is the most fun doctor they have ever met. and to top it off. His office receptionist was a delight to deal with and very helpful with figuring out our insurance.

Best Doc in Phx

I love it that DX Barone is a DO because he sees the whole body as a connected unit; a system that needs attention in all areas. He has been our Pediatrician for 8 yrs with 3 children. He's great with my teenage son and my baby girl. My children always want Dx B to help them!! That says it all :-)

Restating my admiration and appreciation

I have posted about Dr. Barone before. When I saw the last comment I had to respond.We chose a DO Pediatrician specifically for the benefits of Osteopathic Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulation treatments, besides that DO doctors seem to have a much more natural approach. A prescription for a drug is not their impulse reaction to every complaint.regarding the last commenter, it sounds like your insurance company is the problem here. First they call Osteopathic Medicine, Chiropractic Treatment. I am sure Dr. Barone's office billed Osteopathic Treatments and some insurance coder "changed" it and recoded or perhaps in error punched it in as Chiropractic. Anyway that's not the doctor's error!!!!If you are like me Dr. Barone always evaluates and treats my kids' musculoskeletal system, it's absolutely part of an Osteopathic Physical exam. Insurance companies don't have different physical exam codes for an MD and a DO, but they do have codes for the MD part and then codes for the DO part. I am sure Dr. Barone has always done the same thing regarding billing for the treament he gave and sounds like he did it right. Also sounds like your insurance used to cover it so you never had a portion left to you. Now your insurance has decided that it's your responsibility and the doctor has to follow the report from the insurance company as far as who pays what. And remember the doctor is agreeing to accept the discounted amount per your plan if he is a participating doctor with your insurance.People think when their insurance company says something is covered at 100% or 80% etc that the doctor is being paid 100% or 80% of his or her fees. THAT IS NOT TRUE. It's 100% or 80% of the insurance companies "allowable" amount, and every company and every plan within a company is different as to what that amount is. You would think the allowed amount should be the same for all iinsurance but it's not. Some plans are better than others.Bottom line here is that this person is complaining about the doctor when it's her insurance coverage that changed not her doctor and she chooses a DO and probably enjoyed all the benefits of the DO doctor mentality all these years and now that her insurance changes she accuses the doctor of doing something different or something not requested. YOU WENT TO A D.O. SO YOU GET A D.O. PHYSICAL IF YOU WANT AN M.D. Good luck, enjoy the difference. I will bet your kids have been pretty healthy. I wonder if they would have been without the Osteopathic Treatments they got for years.
