Personable but not competent

I loved Dr Darenkov. He was polite, patient, funny and reassuring. I trusted him enough to hospitalize my 16 month old daughter without getting a second opinion. I will never make that mistake again. A battery of tests, many of them quite painful, along with endless IVs and shots and NG tube insertions with no diagnosis and no improvement were frustrating to say the least. Dr. Darenkov showed up EIGHT hours late for an endoscopy, apologizing, stating that his wife took the car. A taxi or a simple phone call would have eased 16 hours of unnecessary fasting for my screaming child. We moved to CHOP (Children's hospital in Philly touted as one of the finest in the world) and they were horrified that Dr. Darenkov ran as many tests and admitted my daughter without ever doing a simple out patient MRI known as a milk test to see if she had acid reflux, which she did. So much agony, time, and expense would have been saved if Dr. Darenkov had simply followed normal medical guidelines and ruled out GERD. By the time we got out of the hospital he had lost his hospital affiliation and his group practice affiliation. I am saddened to see he is still practicing medicine. He was a nice guy. My daughter didn't need a nice guy. She needed a good doctor. Happily we found several in Philly before it was too late.

HE IS AWFUL! DO NOT GO TO HIM! YOU WILL BE SORRY!

WAITED OVER ONE HOUR WITH A NEWBORN TO SEE HIM ONLY TO BE VERY DISAPPOINTED. HE DOES NOT LET YOU SPEAK OR ASK QUESTIONS. RUSHED US OUT THE DOOR AND IS VERYYYYYYY RUDE AND HAS HORRIBLE BEDSIDE MANNER. DID NOT EXPLAIN ANYTHING...ORDERED A BUNCH OF TESTS AND HANDED ME A STACK OR PRESCRIPTIONS AND SENT US ON OUR WAY. NEEDLESS TO SAY I HAD TO GET ANOTHER DR. NOTHING BUT A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!THE WORST DR. EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

God sent

This doctor is among those very few ones who truly care for his patients, he listens and respects the parents and is beyond kind. We were testing my baby for a posible nasty illness and I remember he spent until 2am emailing back and forth with me just answering and trying to calm me down, it was a very trying time for me, one I would not wish upon my worst enemy and he was there for me. Never has a doctor showed that commitment to a patient, truly amazing! God bless him, may he continue to provide the care he gives his patients for many years to come. Wish every Dr. would be like him.

Fantastic Doctor!

We love Dr Darenkov! He has taken amazing care of our infant. He diagonosed him and implemented treatment immediately. He takes the time to answer questions and explain answers. I have never felt rushed out of the office and have never felt that my concerns were dismissed. As my infant continues care with Dr. Darenkov, I am confident that my infant will continue to recieve the best treatment and care. I would recommend him to everyone!
