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.
