- 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.
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.

Dr Biank as well as his head nurse Ann have been a complete nightmare to deal with. My daughter has infected stomach ulcers with nerve damage caused from stress and when i have had the chance to ask questions he seems absolutely clueless and he struggles to give me answers. The Dr and his staff do not communicate with both parents in a divorced family situation in fact i personally have not recieved one phone call back re my daughters health and i have been 100% left outta the loop. At her last appt my daughter voice recorded it because her dad told the dr he is not telling me about the appt and i heard the dr say my daughter "seems to be doing better" now mind you i find her still curled up in a ball holding her tummy but hey the dr said "she seems to be doing better" and thats a professional diagn. I took her for a second opinion and the new dr had no problems answering my medical questions nor did he stumble over his answers and he also told my x husband and i that he will ONLY communicate with BOTH parents via phone or in person together as a dr should! I could go on and on but i wont but be warned that you should avoid this dr!
Looks at numbers, not the patient.

Dr. Biank already decided what was wrong with my child and that she should be hospitalized before he even examined her or made eye contacts with us, the parents. He turned our life upside-down by threatening immediate hospitalization and then retracting his concern by giving us 3 weeks to make drastic changes that negatively impacted our daughter's life for 3 years after the fact. Oh how I wish we never would have seen him. Years late, we are finally beginning to enjoy food again, have it not feel forced and no longer have to work with specialists to undo what he did.

I can't say enough nice things about Dr. Biank! He is very thorough and never makes us feel like he's in a hurry. He is incredibly warm and my daughter loves him. He includes her in our conversations about her health, rather than just talking about her to me. His office staff is equally great.
