I love my pediatrician for my 17 month old son. I went through so many and I followed her to NYC even though I live in North Jersey. Not a big deal since I am a former NYer. Her name is Dr. Maja Castillo of Tribeca Pediatrics. They are located all through the city obviously Tribeca and they open a new office in midtown in the Real Birth location as they are partners now. There web site is www.tribecapediatrics.com. I am very questionable on every vaccine my child receives and she always tells me the holistic way to treat a cough that he is going through now. She confirmed what I am using this flu season for him not to get one as I did not vaccinate. She knows I am nursing and is very supportive of that. I nurse when he gets any vaccine. They have a great office with a lot of wood toys and an aquarium for the kids in midtown. The Tribeca office has a separate sick and well section with wood toys. The midtown which I visit does not have one but there is a section for nursing from Real Birth that can be used. I hope this helps. I have referred others from mamasource and have been happy.

Dr Palevsky is great!
He has an office in Manhattan and on Long Island.
I don't go to him personally but I have a gf that does and I've been to a couple lectures!

Good luck!

Hi O.
My ped is not holistic but they see sick kids on a different floor than the well visits. The well visits go to the 3rd fl and sick are on the 9th fl. I really love all the doctors in the group (9 total).
Good luck!
