• PHA Praise


  • Thank you for another “quick and painless” visit today. Relieved that my daughter doesn’t have pink eye. But, as always, from check in to check out, a positive experience. Thank you, office staff, nurses, and doctors of PHA!

    BTW, the check in on the iPad is great. And I love the updated app. So much easier to find your child’s EMRs. Oh, and your nurse – I’m sorry, I forgot her name – took me on a “tour” to show where you’re expanding to. Congrats on all of these great additions to your practice.

  • …having the lab, and the fact that you are there 7 days was what made me choose you when I moved here from Staten Island almost a yr ago…which was very difficult since i had my old ped for 10yrs, and due to the difficulty of finding ANY docs the even heard of my daughters illness Fanconi Anemia. I needed a lab as you can see we are in quite a lot for cbc’s..lol and thank you all so very much for your willingness to keep a copy of her handbook and help me deal with her very difficult illness….A Special Thanks to Dr. Goldstein for helping when my daughter needed a cbc due to nosebleeds and you were closed. You told me exactly which urgicare to go to and called to check in on us that night and the next…it showed you cared, which means ALOT to me.

  • When I talk to my friends and they are like “my pediatrician doesn’t do that” I know how lucky I am. The best doctors!

    The milestone questionnaires, the baby vision test (my one friend said her Ped never did that until they were older), blood work at certain visits, follow up calls, after hours calls. They have to go to urgent care at night or on weekends. Same day sick visits also. And of course they don’t have facebook access.

    My one friend switched pediatricians after she realized how much hers didn’t do compared to you guys. She lives in NYC so too far to come to you.

  • …got a call from Dr. Samuels following up on some things discussed at my son’s well visit on Monday. It was so nice to hear he called two top specialists at LIJ to ask questions on my son’s behalf and immediately relayed the answers to me. Already loved your practice but really feeling the love today!

  • Dr. Fierstein, You are the best. Thank you so much today for all your help with Matthew. I don’t know what I would do without you guys. 18 years. He is on the new nebulizer right now emailing coaches to see him play this weekend. Again, you are a lifesaver. Thank you so much.

  • I felt the need to post about the most incredible care that we received at Pediatric Health Associates tonight. I called the office this morning to make an appointment to have my 7 year olds fully embedded earring back removed from her ear. Dr. Kerry Fierstein called me back right away to speak to me about the procedure to remove it and essentially talked me off of the ledge. She told me to come in at 6:15 but informed me that she was leaving shortly as she was off for the rest of the day and wouldn’t be back in the office until Friday. Since ALL of the doctors at the practice are amazing, I felt confident. When we got to the office, standing there to greet us was Dr. Fierstein who came back on her night off JUST to take care of my daughter because, “she couldn’t get her off her mind.” Earring came out without a hitch and brand new titanium ones went right back in. This type of dedication and love for our children is exactly why we love this practice and would recommend them to anyone who asks! Thank you!!!

  • Hi Dr. Fierstein! It was so nice meeting you today. You have a smile that’s very genuine and warm. My son Jaden is now convinced the “Spidey-juice” he got (flu mist) has made him as strong as his daddy. Thank you!

  • Today’s flu shot walk in appointments were amazing! Great idea and great job it was so well organized and ran smoothly. Thank you PHA!

  • I just wanted to take a minute and say Thank You. The doctors and all staff here at PHA are always fantastic and extremely helpful. I also want to
    send a special Thank You to Mary Lou – no matter how big or how small the question or problem is she is always there to help

    Beth S.


  • I just have to say thank you to the PHA front desk, especially MaryLou, for getting me copies of camp forms for both of my kids in minutes today. After being at a highly regarded practice in NYC and always struggling to get an appointment, waiting endlessly for a callback, and needing to give 30 days notice for any forms, PHA continues to impress us with how amazing they are! Thankfully my kids are rarely sick, so I hope we don’t “see” you soon, but thank you so much for being so wonderful!
