Ratings for Dr. Sanjay Taparia
I saw him with my first baby at just over 3 months. I really disliked when they weighed my baby on the scale that had an old paper sheet on it that was dirty. (Considering sick children and babies go there as well). When he came into the room I was feeding her and he was super uncomfortable and asked very generic quick questions. He didn't talk to her at all when he checked her over etc. I felt very rushed with him as well. For a first visit I guess I expected a little more thorough & more personal. He flew through explaining to start food at 5-6 months but didn't tell me how, what to start with or what to watch for when I start. I have since gone back to my family doctor to get a referral to another pediatrician instead.
We are very lucky to have a doctor that seems as concerned about our Son's health as we are. Our son has had GERD since birth, and has taken it very seriously. He put in a request for a specialist - and we were called within a month. I have read below that he didn't help another baby with GERD - but there's a lot of things to consider when treating it. Medications are NOT the first choice - and shouldn't be. Our son was not gaining weight (4oz) so it was necessary. But I can't say what their situation was. I only know that he has been a fantastic hands on Doctor, who will call me back and answer any questions I have, even when he's on a vacation! Couldn't have a better Doctor for our son.
Dr. Taparia caught my daughter's congenital heart defects and was so caring and answered all my questions. He even called us at home after our visit to the cardiologist to explain my daughter's upcoming open heart surgery in more detail and go over her treatment plan and to see if we were doing all right. We see him every 2 weeks to track her progress and are always in and out very quickly but I always feel that I have enough time with him to ask any questions I might have. He is very soft spoken but I don't mind at all as he is very knowledgeable. I worked with a lot of pediatricians in my profession and Dr. Taparia always stood out because of his genuine concern for his patients. Glad I chose him!
