Specialties

Dr. Mario E Tano has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

WORST practice I have ever been to! I made an appointment for my 14 month old with a Pediatric Gastro over two weeks ago (that's how long you had to wait to actually see the doc and not an intern). I got in just in time for my appt. at 12. They made sure to charge my co-payment ($300) within the first 10 min of getting there of course, yet, I waited OVER 2 hours to be seen! Absolutely ridiculous!!! After I reminded the nurse I was there an hour into waiting and still ignored I was livid. I walked out, asked for a refund, and made a scene. They offered to check the baby at that time and I refused. You're over scheduled?!? That's your problem! Not mine! Just as I respect the doc's time, I expect them to respect mine. No toddler should have to wait that long. A good doctor should be reflected by a good practice. To top it all, the check up room we waited so long in was dirty. With such a vast office staff you would at least expect a cleaner medical office. A very frustrating experience overall.

mixed feelings need to overhaul office staff procedures

Impossible to reach his office. Was on hold for 45min. Dr. Tano is great but I can not get a follow up appointment until 2 months from now or forced to see his assistant instead of Dr. Tano. Tried to get a message to Dr. Tano and his staff just left me on hold and refused to leave him a message from me. Bad business. Dr. Tano you may be a Great Doctor but your staff is the Face to your practice and they are hurting it.

AMAZING!

DR TANO IS AN AMAZING AND CARING DOCTOR. HE TAKES AS MUCH TIME NEEDED WITH EACH PATIENT, WHICH IS FINE BY ME. WHEN ITS MY TURN HE SITS AND EXPLAINS EVERYTHING IN DETAIL. HOWEVER I WILL SAY, THE OFFICE AS FAR AS SECRETARIES AND THE ANSWERING OF THE PHONES IS HORRIBLE. WORKING IN AN OFFICE SETTING MY SELF, WE ARE RESPONSIBLE TO ANSWER BEFORE THE THIRD RING OR THE EVEN THE MANAGER STARTS COMPLAINING. BUT AT THIS OFFICE YOU GO THROUGH 10 AUTOMATED MACHINES BEFORE REACHING THE PROMPT YOU NEED, THEN IT RINGS FOR APPROXIMATELY 18-30 MINUTES BEFORE SOMEONE GETS TO THE PHONE. IM SAYING FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE I WAS ON HOLD FOR 23 MINUTES THE FIRST TIME I CALLED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT. BUT OTHER THAN THIS ISSUE DR. TANO IS AMMMMAAAZIIINGGGGGG ~!!!!!

There is always an issue with the phones no one answers or the phone is busy one of the girls even told me they closed at 5 and when I called at 4:20 with the insurance information I was told by the switch board that they shouldn't be closed but if I was sent to them then I need to call back tomorrow. The customer service and phone issue has turned me off completely from this office I have found a Gastro elsewhere.
