Dr. Ivan Darenkov has the following 3 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.
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.
A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.
Dr. Ivan Darenkov has the following 12 expertise
- Acid Reflux Disease (Gastroesophageal Reflux / GERD)

Personable but not competent
Self-verified patient of Dr. Ivan Darenkov - Posted on December 3rd, 2014
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!

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.

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!
