Dr. Michael C Tenby has the following 1 specialty
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.

I am a mother of eight children, five of whom I gave birth to, all of whom see Dr. Tenby as their pediatrician. We have been with him for almost ten years. As you can imagine, in a family of ten, we have had reason to see all kinds of doctors in Las Vegas. Dr. Tenby is, hands down, our favorite. Let me tell you a little about why that is. First and foremost, I know for a fact that he truly cares about my family. He remembers our names (and there are a LOT of names), and takes the time to ask about my other seven kids when I am there for their sibling's appointment. Dr. Tenby is patient and kind. I ask a lot of questions. He gives me his opinion based on sound medical research, and then goes the extra mile to recommend reading for me to further educate myself. He is gentle and compassionate with my children. He interacts with them, asks them questions, and puts them at ease. They all, and I truly mean this, love him. They may not love their vaccinations, but are always excited to go back the next time, and that is because both Dr. Tenby and Bonnie are so loving with them. My four year old has a sensory processing disorder, which comes with a fear of anyone physically handling him. Dr. Tenby is patient and allows extra time at his appointments to be sure my son can become comfortable and have a good experience. As a matter of fact, he has never walked out of an appointment in a hurry. He spends more time than is necessary, even personally holding the sticker box while each of my kids picks which sticker they want. And with all my kids, that can be a while! I breast feed all of my kids, for well over the year mark, and Dr. Tenby has been a huge support in us making that decision. One of my adopted children went through a suicide attempt after years of neglect and abuse by his birth mother. Again, we were met with support and concern. He is thorough. There have been several times over the years where I had an uncommon health issue or question (for example, having a parathyroid tumor while pregnant), and he and Bonnie took the time to research the possible problems for my child. He has, several times, texted a colleague of his to help my child book an appointment when it was needed in a hurry, or to ask specialized questions about something we were going through. My twins were born while he was on a family vacation, and we had a couple of issues that we called in about. He called me, within an hour, from his vacation. He could have let Bonnie handle it (who, by the way, is fantastic), but called himself. Every time I have ever had an after hours issue, not only have they answered my questions personally, he and Bonnie have often called back later to check to see that the issue has resolved. He has never made me feel like my questions are silly, rather, he makes sure he takes the time to respectfully help. He personally has come to the hospital to visit each of my newborns. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that I encourage anyone looking for a great doctor who will treat you and your kids like family, to book an appointment with Dr. Tenby.
We've been with Dr. Tenby for a year now and it's just gone downhill. He always acts "off" a bit and if he didn't have his own children, I'd really wonder about his behavior. Most recently he informed us that our insurance isn't good b/c he doesn't get paid that much from the "state" shots so we should swap so he gets paid more. At our most recent appt he was very rude and while trying to take a measurement he was telling my one year old to "HOLD STILL!" "DON'T GRAB THAT!". NO bedside manner to speak of. We will have to drive much farther for a new pediatrician, but I refuse to have my child seen by somebody who is so rude and requests his patients get "good" insurance so he can get more money. At least we have insurance, jerk!
