Just wanted to give a shout out to the amazing doctors at PHA. My daughter had a medical emergency last week and was admitted to Winthrop Hospital directly from PM Pediatrics in the middle of the night. When the doctors at PHA were notified of the situation the following morning, I immediately received a phone call from Dr Read. In fact, I received several phone calls each day throughout the entire weeklong ordeal to check up on my daughter and to even make sure I was holding up ok. Even though my child wasn’t being treated directly by the PHA doctors (since she was inpatient at Winthrop) The PHA doctors were more than happy to discuss every test, medication, and treatment plan that was being outlined for my daughter by the hospital staff. They were more than happy to give me advice and suggestions on what questions to ask the hospital doctors and assure me that the correct treatments were being given to my daughter. Dr Samuel even took my page on Mother’s Day (called me back within 3 minutes) when I was in tears over a possible diagnosis. He completely calmed me down. I cannot thank you all enough, for your compassion and advice through this very stressful ordeal. It’s rare to find doctors that truly care so much about their patients (and the sanity of their parents). Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!Marni B
A big shout to Dr Read…Toni Ann Kabelka
My daughter was there this morning for fever and sore throat…tested negative for strep … however fever has been increasing all day even Motrin/Tylenol….I called this afternoon because I was concerned with her high fever….she called back shortly I left a message…I appreciate hearing from her and reassuring me it’s just not the number that matters…even though this nervous Nellie mom is VERY CONCERNED…Just hoping this fever breaks soon….

I just have to post here to say a huge THANK YOU to the incredible staff at PHA. I had to pop in to get a quick doctor’s note for my daughter and the team there did 100 other things for me while I was there (in and out in under 30 minutes!) Thank you to Doretta who ran in circles finding the 10000000 camp physical forms I needed. Dr. Reid for somehow convincing Z two shots were a good idea. And to Dr. Kerry Fierstein for always talking me down off the cliff when I think the worst and panic. Even if we didn’t live across the street, I’d drive many miles for this kind of service. Seriously the best! Thank you all!Felissa Allard

We had our first full telemedicine visit this week (thankfully I have the older, cooperative, curious child! And not uncooperative one!)Pamela P
It was great to work with Dr. Z. She was patient and kind and knowledgeable. She saved us a trip and higher copay from pm pediatrics.
We will be using our TytoCare device in future when needed.
Thank you for adding his great service.

I cannot thank you and the entire office enough for thinking ahead about this (flu shots) and being so efficient. I decided to do this sooner rather than later this year because we have a cruise booked and I’m going to be with my parents tomorrow at a hospital. It’s such a relief to have this done and have it be so accessible. I was the worst patient out of me and my two kids.Jackie C

Thank you for another wonderful visit. Everyone we saw this morning was so kind, friendly, and professional. The lovely lady at the front desk (I’m sorry, I don’t know her name), the nurse who did Lexi’s fingerstick (or hers), and, of course, Dr. Maggie Chalson. When Dr. Chalson and Dr. Brian Goldstein teased Lexi, it made her day. She was still laughing when we got to the car. 😊Amanda Y

I would like to say a very special thank you to Dr. Goldstein. Today, he pulled out all the stops to help my daughter get her pre-approval for surgery. I can’t thank him enough. A special thanks to Stephanie for getting all the paperwork where it had to go. Pediatric Health Associates is an amazing place and I really appreciate how they look after my family!Carolyn D.

Just wanted to say your front desk rocks! I emailed them for help to get test results from another practice after calling them a billion times and your office called for me and finally got the results. THANK YOU 😊Leslie G.

wanted to give the whole PHA staff a BIG round of applause… brought my 5yo in as a walk in yesterday, turned out to be an ear infection. I was shocked to walk off the elevator to see patients waiting in the hallway because the waiting room was packed. Despite the overwhelming amount of sick kids (at least 9 in the sick waiting room and maybe 5 more in the hall when we arrived), every staff member took a minute to smile, never rushed us, but was hustling their own butts to get everyone seen and cared for quickly. All in all we walked out 50min after we walked in…i have waited longer in empty waiting rooms!! So… thank you! And i pray none of you catch any of what everyone is bringing in!Erica A.

Hi – just wanted to let you know that we brought Andrew (age 11) in for what turned out to be flu # 2 (B in January, now he has A). When I walked in, I was astounded by the number of people there. But, due to the efficiency of the staff, we were done within an hour and I was able to get Andrew home to rest. Thanks!Steven G
I just need to say thank you to you and all of the doctors at PHA… dealing with some personal medical issues and getting in contact with the dr is virtually impossible and just makes me appreciate all of you even more <3Iliana W.

We met your new doctor yesterday, Dr. Arora and she was wonderful! Just wanted to let you know 🙂
When you end up at the Dr. three times in 8 days and your kid doesn’t fight you on it, you know you have the best Dr. We ❤️ Dr. Maggie.Sarah B.
Once again, for the millionth time, we’re so thankful for you!!! Dr. Stewart Samuel added the perfect amount of levity today-my son was in for a flu shot and I believe he truly thought life as he knew it was over-he was SO terribly nervous! And nurse Jackie…the patience you showed was incredible, as always. You are beyond amazing! It’s so easy to see why my son completely adores you. And Angela, always thinking of my daughter and sending regards home to her-so thoughtful and so appreciated! We are so lucky to have all of you!! xoxoxoTara E.

I know it has been said before and hopefully more will follow….Christine M.
Another shout out for the amazing doctors and nurses!!! My daughter needed blood drawn from her arm for the first time and they were amazing at finding that little uncooperative vein and making it work. Very thankful for these gems that help take care of our babies. Thank you!!!

I’m sorry but I find myself laughing at your post (hoping I’m laughing with you too!)- I too was in the same boat with my 5 year old last week! I was mortified- he kicked and pinched the nurse as he was getting his vaccines and they still smiled, hugged us when we left and are just so calm and kind ALWAYS – they are the best and we are so grateful to be a part of their practice! I hope your little one is feeling better!Stephanie R.
