She has been my daughter's pediatric endocrinologist for 3 years now,and even though Emma is no longer a "pediatric" patient ,she feels so comfortable with dr Tangorra she doesnt want to change.Doctor Tangorra was always freindly and knowledgeable,and took the time to explain things,so we always knew the plan of action before leaving her office.I would highly recommend her to anyone whose child needs the care of an endocrinologist,and I am both an EMT,and an overprotective father!
