Pediatrician in the Douglaston, Floral Park,Lake Success, New Hyde Park Area?

I was told to start looking for one, but I have no idea even where to start.

I do not care if it is a man or woman, but I don't want an office where you have to wait 2 hours to be seen.


Is the interview process necessary?


Thanks Moms!

Before we moved to CT, we used Park Pediatrics. Loved all of the doctors in the practice, they are amazing!

I go there too. My primary doctor is Dr. Herko and I really like her.

She was recommended by a family member, but my DH and I went to meet her before my DD was born. She's very friendly - like a mom.

If possible, I try to make my appointments early in the day or the last appointment just to minimize wait time. I usually don't wait long, but I'm sure that it depends on the day just like most places.

When DD was a newborn, they take you very quickly and put you in an individual room so that the baby isn't near any sick kids, which I really liked.

Also, the on-call doctors have always been great and call back right away whenever DD has been sick.

Hope this helps!

I swear by my ped. Arnie Chusid. Hillside Ave in Williston Park. 516.742.4171

It's his solo practice. He works 365 days a year. You get an appointment without any issues. You get a call back from him within an hour if you call for a question.

I have heard wonderful things about Dr Chusid in Williston Park- all the moms on my block use him( including my neighbor who is a RN at Winthrop) and my cousin, I would have used him but he doesn;t accept HIP.
I would seriosly look into him, office next to EW train station,

Re: Pediatrician in the Douglaston, Floral Park,Lake Success, New Hyde Park Area?

I always feel like they (really more the nurses) indirectly telling me that every decision I make for my DS is a bad one.
I wanted to break up shots so that meant I wanted DS to catch that illness. I rock him to sleep so I was advised to start CIO at 2 months & I said that I won't feel comfortable with that. He started STTN at 2 months but on ocassion woke up once a week or so, I would feed him, Dr told me no, let him cry because he isn't hungry. I said no, I can;t let my 2 month old cry for food in the middle of the night. DS was eating evey 2 hours up until 4 months, Dr told me to let him cry & wait to feed him every 3 hours instead since I was overfeeding him. Chat Icon more situations like this.
