Specialties

Dr. Mimi N Ton 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.

Misdiagnosed my child

We saw Dr Ton for two years. When we first started seeing her I asked if my daughters GI issues could be caused by a potentially serious birth defect that a friends toddler had died from. Dr Ton actually laughed at my suggestion and said it was impossible. She diagnosed my daughter with something much more minor instead. My daughter continued to be constantly sick, and I told Dr Ton the medication she prescribed didn't work. I asked if we should do more testing or try different medications. She said it was normal with my daughters "condition" to not be completely helped by medicine, and that we should not do more testing as there was nothing else to test for and we didn't want to expose my daughter to unnecessary radiation. Two years after we began seeing Dr Ton my daughter nearly died, and we found out that she did indeed have the exact birth defect that Dr Ton had laughed at me for asking about at the start. Dr Ton would have found it had she ordered a very common diagnostic test. Dr Ton made me feel like I was just a paranoid mom on more than one occasion over the years. She didn't listen to the severity of my child's symptoms, and missed several very blatant signs of my daughter's true diagnosis. My daughter survived by pure luck, and would have been dead within the next few hours thanks to her misdiagnosis. My daughter also needlessly suffered for two years, spent a lot of time in the hospital (which resulted in a lot of medical debt for our family), when a simple surgery was all that was actually needed to correct her birth defect. Please don't risk your child's health, search out a different pediatric GI.

TERRIBLE!

I couldn't agree more with the prior review. Dr. Ton has horrible manners. Speaks over you and down to you. Seems rushed and annoyed. Horrible bed side manner with children and she's a PEDIATRIC gastro. I would NOT recommend this Dr.
