Specialties

Dr. Mario A Fierro has the following 2 specialties

  • Developmental - Behavioral Pediatrics
  • 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.

Don't waste your time

We saw Dr Fiero several times for my son. He would test him and then tell us to look this and that up on the internet. Yes, that is exactly what he said. He also suggested a speech therapy for him, but then would never follow through. In the meantime our son did not get any better. He had severe language and cognitive delays. Finally we got tired of having our appts cancelled for bogus reasons. Never knew why except that maybe our insurance wasn't paying him enough?! His staff was rude and when I tried to be firm they said I was rude and would not listen to my complaint. He also issued a report on our visit and called my son who he had seen more than once a girl. Also information in his report was not the same information at all that he told us during the visit. Guess he was looking at the wrong notes when he made the report. So we stopped seeing him and sought an alternative. We got him started with Little Giant Steps. The same tests he did, they did and they gave us therapy to implement that works! Maybe Dr. Fierro just didn't know how to help our son. He should have said so and not just skulked like a weasel and refused to keep appointments. That is unprofessional. If by some chance he is helping your child, then you're just lucky. Even a broken clock can be right twice a day.
