Testimonials

  • "Dr. Prezioso is an excellent pediatrician. Has been terrific with my daughter from birth through adolescence for 15 years, and her advice to parents is reliable and practical."
  • "We just had another wonderful visit with Dr Natale in her new Long Island City location. I'm so grateful to you and your staff for helping me keep my four children healthy and happy ."
  • "Doctor Oppenheim is an amazing caring pediatrician with a lot of years of working with kids under her belt. I recommend ANY doctor affiliated with this office as each one you meet is as amazing and as qualified as the next. As a first time parent you need someone who’s gonna take the time out with you and go over your fears and stuff and not to judge you and that is exactly why we go to this pediatrician. It’s in a perfect area the office is clean and well lit and all the staff is friendly and they’re just there to help. That’s why we’ve come to love this place. Prospect Park East!"
  • "My family and I adore Dr. DiMaggio. She is attentive, friendly and easy going. Kind of like you have a friend who just happens to be a fabulous Dr. Everyone at Pediatric Associates is friendly and professional. She listened to and addressed all our first time parent woes and treated our little girl wonderfully. I absolutely recommend this practice and Dr. DiMaggio!"
  • "We have been seeing Dr. Stern since our daughter was born. Dr. Stern has always had the loveliest bedside manner and she is such a caring, compassionate and skilled doctor. Even though she always has a busy schedule, Dr. Stern always takes the time to answer any of our questions (no matter how trivial!) thoroughly. Each appointment is conducted efficiently, but we never feel rushed or ignored. We couldn't be happier with Dr. Stern or this practice!"
  • "We have been coming to Pediatric Associates for 5 + years and can't speak highly enough of the practice. We started in Manhattan and then moved to the Brooklyn office. All of the doctors have been equally exceptional, but our primary physician was Dr. Putter. As a health care provider myself I look for certain qualities in a provider and I am more then pleased by the quality care provided by Dr. Putter. The desk staff is both extremely helpful and courteous. We will miss this practice tremendously as we are moving away."
  • "Dr Horwitz is a wonderful doctor. Old school type of doctor that is hard to find these days. He really takes the time to explain everything. Whenever I had a question, he answered my calls shortly and he has a great sense of humor and disposition. Really put me at ease being a first time mom!"
  • "My three kids have gone here since my eldest, now 18, was a baby. While it's a busy practice, I've always felt that the doctors are responsive and professional. When in doubt, they err on the side of common sense vs. extra medicine and they have involved my kids in those decisions as they've gotten older."
  • "Wonderful care from exceptionally well trained physicians. Excellent referrals when necessary, to ENTs and other specialists. Dr Boehm was amazingly attentative over the holidays with my daughter’s pneumonia."
