Specialties

Dr. Nestor J Truccone has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Cardiology

    Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
    Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.

  • 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.

Difficult to understand due to heavily accented English

I really liked the fact that he has all of the diagnostic equipment he needs in the office itself. The assessments are done and he interprets them for you immediately -- no agonizing wait for test results. He is difficult to understand however and I am a medical transcriptionist who works for physicians with heavy accents. The only other problem is that the office never contacted my son's pediatrician to let them know in writing the diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Aside from these problems, I would recommend Dr. Truccone since at least one of the problems is easy to fix.

Previous employee

I had the chance to work for two weeks with this doctor. Not only do they treat employees horrible, unfairly, and nepotism which says a lot about their loyalty, but also I got to see first hand how they treat patients. He will take his time, not considerate to people's time but if he has an event like golfing he will see patients in matter of seconds. Also he himself told me always notify me if patient uses medicade because we treat them completely different which is so shady. He is not a doctor for helping children but a doctor for the paycheck. Also Lori is secretary is absolutely rude and degrading to both employees and patients. They hired me and decided to lay me off after one month leaving me and my son on a very tight budget.

We waited almost 3 hours to be seen and he spent less than 10 minutes with my son. When we went to his office he hushed my son because he was crying which made me furious. Terrible bedside manner!
