Specialties

Dr. Jon A Vanderhoof 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.

the best

Doc has been our support for many years. We think of him as part of the family. He and his NP are the most caring, professional, experienced medical personnel we have dealt with (our daughter has Crohn's disease) and we have had contact with many through the years.

Time to retire!

Absolutely horrible! Misdiagnosed my daughter with what ended up being pancreatitis-something that is a basic in gastroenterology. We spent 2 days waiting for the " specialist" and he had NOTHiNG to add. So disappointed, and 2 extra days of waiting in horrible pain for his "help". Have NOTHING good to say.
