Specialties

Dr. Edisio J Semeao has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Gastroenterology

    Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
    Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.

  • 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.

Terrible experience

I have NEVER walked out of an appointment before. Dr. Semeao had a very poor bedside manner -- he did not introduce himself, he seemed angry and impatient. It was an awful experience. It was very, very upsetting.

The Dr who like to talk and NOT listen!!

i felt this Dr did more talking than listening rather than finding out what was wrong and didn't ask my daughter any questions or how she was feeling infact for a Pediactric Dr didn't even include her in any of the time he was in the room other than at the very end took a 10second examination!!

Do NOT see this doctor!!!!

It's true what the other review stated and I wish we would have seen this prior to seeing him. He spends more time talking to you as he's explaining what he can't do then spending time on what to do to help you! I had to continue to re-direct him many times on getting back to the subject. He will tell you everyone has abdominal pain!?!! What?!!! Isn't that your specialty? Truly he is an egotistical jerk and should be at a desk rather than a practice. Don't bring your kids to him it's a waste!

Dr. Semeao has been my daughter's specialist for 6 years. He is always friendly and takes time to ask her questions about how she is feeling. She feels comfortable answering all of his questions. His office staff is always cheerful and accommodating.
