Dr. Nadine M Trainer has the following 2 specialties
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 first went to Dr. Trainer because my daughter was 18 months old and not walking. When we first went to see her she spent a total of 5 minutes seeing my daughter and dignosed her with a sensory delay. She sent us to physical therapy. After 2 months of physical therapy, the physical therapist said that she needed ankle supports because her ankles curved in words. So we saw Dr trainer again. And she told her that she doesn't need them. That her ankles were fine. And she refuses to write the prescription for the supports. in the mean time we had another phycial theropist with 30 years experience look at my daughter and said the same thing the other one did ( that it wasnt sensory. We tried to express our concerns and dr. Trainer wasnt having any of it. At the same time the office staff failed to tell me that her insurance wasn't going to cover the physical therapy. And we were already 3 and a half months into it. So we owed them well over 2500.00. So I immediately stopped her visits. And talked to the office manager and she told me that insurance takes a while to process and there's nothing they could do. Yeah it takes at most 1 month to process. NOT 3 MONTHS and $2500.00 later.
My child who has CP gets angry primarily because of his inability to communicate his desires. If he's upset enough he bites himself, hits himself in the head or pulls his hair. Dr. Trainer started him on a low dose of Tennex with our permission. Then 2 weeks after she schedules a follow up to ask how he's doing and says if that's not fixing the anger issues lets try risperidone and tennex. Come back in 2 weeks and your son has to be there. My question is Why in the world does my child need to be at an appointment for me to tell the Dr that the medicine is or isn't working? It's not like she can tell whether his anger issues are resolved in a 15 min visit. The answer: Dr. Trainer doesn't get paid if she doesn't see my child but she won't change medications over the phone based on my observation. I'm not real big on playing guinea pig with psyc meds anyway. But I sure can't afford to go back every 2 weeks for who knows how long till she figures out what she thinks works best (based on my opinion). We'll keep going back because I don't know any Dr's in the area that know CP and its issues but I don't like the way she won't change meds or dosages via the phone. For now I'll just try harder to keep him happy and avoid the meds.
