• 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!

  • I apologize to everyone who was working at PHA today, or was there as a patient from 430 until 515. My almost 5yo was blindsided by the need for a shot and went absolutely ballistic. She may have yelled out, “I am never coming back to this stupid place filled with liars,” more than a few times, and for that I’m very sorry!!! We love PHA!!

  • Thank you to Dr. Goldstein and the nurses and staff today for being amazing (as usual). Who knew a flu shot would cause an 8 year old to become Satan?!?!

  • Piggy backing on everyone’s appreciation for PHA lol. It’s been a rough couple of days for me with the kiddos, and the staff has been nothing short of AMAZING to me and my family. And by staff, I mean everyone- front desk, nurses, doctors, etc. I’m so grateful for everyone at PHA! We love you guys!!!!

  • The best of the best! So happy with my decision to leave our original pediatrician and join the PHA family!

  • I had started with this practice when my first child was born then ended up switching a few years later bc of location/convenience. I always questioned my move because I felt the level of care and attention wasn’t the same at the new practice I chose. Fast forward to when I had my third child, I went with my gut and switched back to PHA. It was the best move I could have made. The doctors and staff are wonderful. They don’t rush you, answer all your questions, and are reassuring. I just want to thank you for all that you do!

  • I’m so thankful to take my son to this practice. It was wonderful walking in with my son, who had a mild case of poison ivy, without an appointment, and an hour later we had our medicine and were on the road to recovery! Thanks again Dr. Kerry Fierstein!!

  • Dear Maryou and PHA,

    Thank you for so quickly gathering the paperwork necessary to help us complete the adoption of our newborn son, Caleb.

    You are exceptional!

  • I love PHA and their doctors & nurses. Especially Nitasha rocks! She is so cool, nice and caring, and her jokes let my kids feel relaxed.
    She jokes but when she examines kids, her eyes are very serious and I saw her detailed check.
    And I love MaryLou, the office staff. She is so caring and warm-hearted as well, and always tries to accommodate the patient’s need. She quickly responds me too!

  • I recommend this practice at least once a month. There is never a wait, caring doctors who follow up themselves, blood drawn in office so you don’t have to separately drag your kids to Quest or LabCorp, a lactation consultant on staff, valet parking Monday-Thursday, walk in hours for sick visits 8-10 AM during the week, late after work appointment, and open 365 days per year. Literally (we were there Christmas Eve, New Year’s Day, etc…)

  • I am not one to typically write reviews (whether good or bad) but I must share about my continuous exceptional experiences with all of the doctors and staff at PHA in Plainview. These doctors have been treating my children since they were born (6 years now) and I wouldn’t trust anyone else. They are outstanding (doctors, nurses and entire staff) and always go above and beyond.

  • A fantastic group of doctors and nurses. The nurses go out of their way to make your child feel comfortable. I haven’t experience the compassion and empathy they have in any other doctors office. Highly recommend this office.

  • I wanted to send a note to thank everyone at PHA for the awesome work you guys do… My son John is a bit (to say the least) nervous about getting injections and being poked and prodded. During today’s visit, Geri went way above and beyond and made sure she did everything she could to put John at ease – from getting the cold spray for his finger to applying numbing cream to his arms. And even just the kindness and understanding she showed when she was with John is so much appreciated.

    Dr. Samuel was also prepped about John’s anxiety before he entered the room and he spoke with him in ways you could tell he was trying to calm him. Dr. Samuel, and all the doctors we’ve seen at PHA, have always been great with our boys.

    And finally, Gina did an outstanding job showing patience and compassion in administering the injections.

    Everyone just did an amazing job in calming John’s fears. We can’t tell you enough how much we appreciate your kindness and compassion.

    Thank you to all

  • Pediatric Health Associates is a stellar group of doctors and team of other important professionals who work with the most rewarding population of people… children and their families. Their knowledge, caring and support goes beyond the scope of their “business hours”. They go above and beyond and I highly recommend them to new parents or parents who want to make a positive switch. Can’t say enough glowing reviews about them and you will too!

  • Thank you for accommodating a last minute appt. request. As usual, I left feeling confident with your practice as our pediatricians. Front office, nurses, and doctors alike – everyone is friendly and professional. Today we happened to see Dr. Read, so a special thank you to her! Bubble gum flavored antibiotics taken without a peep tonight! 👍🏻

  • I wanted to thank Dr. Samuel (Saturday) & Dr. Read (today) for being great with my 4 year old. He is by no means an easy patient and they were so relaxed and unflappable. Going to the pediatrician with my 2 boys is NEVER easy, as they are difficult patients, but whenever we see Drs. Samuel, Chalson, Read, and Fierstein they are always calming and wonderful! It also helps that my youngest has a total crush on Nurse Jackie.

  • Just a shout out and thank you – brought in my sick 10-year-old yesterday for walk-in – we were on our way to get antibiotics 15 minutes later.

  • The best! From the doctors to the rest of the office staff everyone is always welcoming and takes the time to get to know you personally regardless of how busy they are.
