• Hello. I want to take a minute to thank Dr. Read for her patience, sense of humor, and empathy during my son’s three year old checkup today. He gave new meaning to the term ” really terrible threes” and was as uncooperative as a three year old who doesn’t want a check up could be. Dr. Read’s kindness and patience enabled us to get through his appointment and also helped to keep me, the frazzled mommy, calm as well. Thank you so very much, Dr. Rosie Matura Read!

  • I can’t say enough good things about this office! NEW, CLEAN and the doctors are great! Switching from a single doctor practice to a multiple doctor practice was the best decision for us! I like them all and have seen them all- although you do have an option to choose. On Thanksgiving my daughter woke up with a terrible cough and I was nervous that the office wouldn’t be open. I messaged them and someone responded almost immediately informing me that Dr. Goldstein would be in and just to call and leave a message for when they got in!! I’m so happy I made the change!

  • I just wanted to take a second to say thank you because the doctors at PHA recommended a terrific ophthalmologist for Lucas after he failed his eye exam. He has some issues that left untreated could have led to some serious complications. He started wearing glasses this week and we can already notice a change in his behavior, focus and curiosity. We couldn’t be more grateful for being able to catch this so early (he is 8 months this weekend). Wishing you and your families a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    Reply – I am so glad our system of preventive care worked for you.  Being able to test an infant’s eyes at 6 months of age is truly a great thing.  If you waited until your child showed difficulty seeing, the end result would likely not be as good. Lucas must look so cute in those glasses!

  • Dear Dr. Kerry Fierstein,

    Thank you so very much for your compassion, empathy, and amazing bedside manner at my daughter’s well visit today. Your time speaking with me beforehand is so appreciated as well. My daughter had such a positive experience in your office today and I believe most, if not all, of her anxiety related to coming to the office has faded.
    She said how awesome you and the nurse were and if it is possible for you to be her doctor forever. 😄
    Thanks so much.

    She is amazing. We have been with that practice since my kids were born and now that my girls are 15 & 19 they see her exclusively for all of their well checkups. There are 8 or so doctors in the practice, is she the only one on your insurance? They are all wonderful, and besides Dr. Chalson we especially love Drs. Goldstein and Samuel.

  • You didn’t just “do your job”, which would have been amazing enough. You took the time to educate and inspire my boys while you did it! Thank you Dr. Fierstein for another wonderful visit to PHA 😍

  • I can’t stress enough how many times MaryLou has gone out of her way for me. She saved my miserable infant yesterday. I can’t imagine her ever being “bored” at the office so I know she had to have stopped what she was doing to “please” me. Thanks to her, I received 4 out of 8 INSANELY IMPOSSIBLE TO GET prescribed infant formula cans. If she threatens to leave or retire, I will be the first one on their hands and knees BEGGING her to stay !!!! Thank you for treating me like a family member. I wish you could be MY doctors !!!!

  • I finally got over the trauma of my son’s visit the other day when he found out he needed shots. I just need to compliment the nurses of PHA. They are the best. From Angela who loves my kids to Gerry who is as patient as can be and the two Angels Jackie and Sam who stayed in the peacock room with us for over a half hour waiting for my son on his own terms to get the two shots he needed, as he screamed his head off. My apologies to the other families who were there Monday at 5pm. Thanks PHA!!!!!!!!

  • I just wanted to send special praise to Dr. Kerry Fierstein for helping my lil boy get better. After I voiced my concerns she called me the next day to discuss a plan of action. Thanks for listening & letting me voice my concerns. I wanted to take the time to recognize Nitasha Ali & the staff at the front desk for expediting paperwork after a miscommunication. Thank you ladies. You rock!

  • Tonight we called the office at 6:35 because our appt at 8 am was not going to suffice. My son had spiked in fever and seemed like he was having trouble breathing. They let us come right in and took care of him no questions asked. Amazing.
