    Comment:  We’ve been to the TB Prospect Heights location (Flatbush and 6th Ave) and Paul Slope location (5th Ave and 8th St). We just loooove both Dr. Patel and Dr. Coelho. Both are thorough and have such warm bedside manners. I cannot say enough good things about them.We’ve been very happy with TB, overall, bc they are a large group. It’s so easy to contact their various depts— billing, referrals, on-call for after hours help.They’ve been great with both Zoom and in-person visitsAfter hours calls are actually better after 9pm. Before, it’s an RN and after, an MD. I don’t love every single doctor at both offices. You always find those with personalities as a better or worse match to you. But, the overall experience has been excellent. Especially Drs. Patel and Coelho. Highly recommend

    Comment:  We tried two other practices in park slope before we ended up loving Tribeca. We haven't seen any Dr we didn't like, they always get back to us super quick and their off hours answering service is great and we've always gotten a quick call back.

    Comment:  We love them! We personally know and love Dr Gold, Dr Coelho and Dr Patel. Schedule early appts with different ones, see who you click with, and going forward request to see that doctor! The nice thing about a large practice is that in a pinch, there’s always someone who will see you!

    Comment:  We are very happy with Tribeca Pediatrics (we see Dr Coelho at Park Slope office). They are not for everyone though. They recommend sleep training early, 8 weeks, which rubs some people the wrong way but has worked like a charm with both my kids. They definitely take a less is more approach with antibiotics and meds (like letting fevers run their course rather than treating immediately). I love how accessible they are, how easy it is to get appointments, their office runs very smoothly, never long waits, and the doctors of course.

    Comment:  We go to the Park Slope location of Tribeca Pediatrics, too (and love it!), and though the two main people we see regularly (Dr. Gold and Bridie) have never questioned our choice to raise our kids veg, there was at least one other doctor at the practice who we saw on a busy day who was surprised we weren't transitioning my youngest to cow's milk at 12 months (why would we if neither of her parents drink milk?). So, perhaps it was a blip and more of an exception to the rule, but worth mentioning!

    Comment:  We go to TriBeCa Pediatrics and they tested it on the spot. It was really nice to get the results right away (I assume they can’t do that for more complex diagnostic tests but it’s great for the standard check ups). I also thought the nurse did a great job, and I’m super squeamish about blood.

    Comment:  Dr. Gold came and spoke to our PSP mommy group, about what to look for and ask when meeting pediatricians. I didn't have to make an appointment, i knew I liked her energy, and laid back demeanor. Their philosophy is very low intervention, which I really liked. I don't love that they don't require patients get vaccinated, but i've been assured that most families are doing vaccines and they are very cognizant to keep sick non vaccinated children away from the rest of the group. Otherwise, i've liked every dr we've met - Dr. Ivy we've seen the most, she is sweet, and very to the point. She looks young, which i think throws off some parents, but I think she's very capable. Easy check in and check out, and easy to make appointments. Insurance: yes, they take our insurance and we've never had an issueBased on a May 2015 birth

    Comment:  Review: Tribeca has been wonderful in that they are very convenient for us and have basically zero wait times. We've considered switching numerous times, however, because they do take a very laissez faire approach to potential issues. I respect that to the extent it helps new parents to hear that "everything is normal," but I don't like the fact that we discovered my son's milk and soy protein intolerance through my own research and experimenting. Even after switching him to a hypoallergenic formula had a DRASTIC effect on his happiness and ability to sleep, they treated us like it was all in our minds. It's patronizing and unhelpful.

The office is lovely and the practice is remarkably well-organized (ex. when I got a referral, they even cross-referenced it with my insurance to be sure it would work for us!). I can't say that I love any of the doctors we've seen. The "hands off" approach of the practice doesn't rest so well with me, for some reason. Insurance: Yes.

    Comment:  We really appreciate Dr. Gold's practical approach to parenting - our favorite piece of advice was to think of our baby as if he is our third child, in which case we would have to take him everywhere and expose him to germs from loving siblings. She is very kind but also very straightforward and really set our expectations at the first appointment in terms of what we could expect in the first eight weeks, which made us feel much better when our angel baby turned into quite a fusser after his first two weeks.

    Comment:  Review: Was excited to go to South Slope but ran into issues from the start. From the first appointments with my newborn, I didn't feel the examinations were thorough (often missed the thrush until we pointed it out) and Dr Cao was on vacation (it was summer so I understand) so we saw different doctors almost every time through the 3 month appt. We didn't feel the was any urgency to fix the thrush so after 13 weeks or trying to deal with it we finally asked for a culture. After two weeks of no results we were finally told the test results had been misfiled. We switched to TriBeCa Pediatrics shortly thereafter. We have been seeing Ivy Grodman who we are lukewarm on. Our son has some developmental issues and I'm not sure she has the experience we need as she's quite young. There hasn't been any helpful insight or feedback from our appts regarding our son's delays. We asked for referrals to Early Intervention (she never brought the program up as an option) and she told us we probably wouldn't qualify. We just finished getting approved for the program after receiving unanimous recommendations for approval from the three therapists who evaluated our son, all of whom told us our son was severely delayed and needed additional help in a big way.

    Comment:  I love Tribeca Pediatrics! The doctors are all great (we've seen three, though we mostly see Dr. Gold, who I adore), as is the support staff. They are very non-alarmist, flexible about vaccination schedules, have great perspectives on parenting challenges, and don't tend to overmedicate. Because it's a chain of offices, there's always someone on call at any hour, and I find I always get a call-back within a half hour or so even at night or on the weekend. And they keep one office open on weekends, so if you need to see a doctor on a Saturday, which we once did because of a burn, you can just go to the office that's open that day. I highly recommend them.

    Comment:  We are now at the Park Slope branch of Tribeca Pediatrics, under the care of the incomparable Dr. Gold (and no other doctors are as good as Gold, we've found). Super efficient, highly computerized. Where it was an ordeal just to get Park Slope Pediatrics' staff to fill out the form for school or camp, at Tribeca you just go online and click a button and it's mailed to you! I've never waited more than 15 min. And the lollipops are the neat double-flavor kind.One thing is that the practice is small and if you schedule an emergency visit it appears you are seen by a nurse practitioner, rather than your doctor.(April 2012)
