Dr. Donald D Hackenberg 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.

Never going back!

He was arrogant and mean spirited. Made my son cry about his weight the first time he ever saw him as a patient. Treated my husband & I (separate visits) like we knew nothing about our children or their health. He might be ok with babies but terrible with kids over 10!

Dr. Hackenberg misdiagnosed my newborn. I noticed that my son's head was always tilted and the back of his head was a little flat. His left cheek looked larger than his right cheek. At Every appointment I kept asking Dr. Hackenberg if my son's head was ok. He's reply was he's fine and we are all asymmetry. I understand that we are all asymmetry for I use to work for an orthodontist. The situation continued to bugme every day. I ended up taking my son for a second opinion. The new Dr. gave my son a thorough exam. My son was diagnosed with torticollis and plagiocephaly. He is now in therapy and possibly needs a helmet. The therapist said she is so happy that we got a second opinion. If you let torticollis mistreated it can lead to serious issues. I was highly disappointed in Dr. Hackenberg. I trusted him with my newborn and he just ignored my questions.
