Pediatrician recemmendationWe go to Tribeca Pediatrics in Boerum Hill. Dr. Chao is great! There are locations all over so it's convenient. One time we had to go to a different location on a Saturday, so it was nice they already had our info on file.

ISO pediatrician in the Barclays / Boerum Hill / Park Slope areaWe love Talia Chao at Tribeca Pediatrics on Dean Street in Boerum Hill. As first time parents (our daughter is 6mo), we’ve found her to be personable, positive and encouraging. She’s extremely thorough and always takes a lot of time to answer all of our questions during visits, as well as responding quickly to messages. She is also a parent of a young child which I think informs her empathetic and realistic advice. I’ve also liked the other doctors and NP that I’ve seen at that office.
Sharing received recommendation for the Pediatrician from Tribeca PediatricsWe have seen Dr Talia Chao at the Boerum Hill practice for a long time with both our kids. She's amazing. She only works part-time though so if you have a sick visit you probably won't get an appointment with her. But she has been so great with both our kids. She doesn't rush you. She really listens. She talks to the kids and looks them in the eye and really listens to them as well. She feels very present in our appointments. Now that our daughter is 11 she also has us leave the room for 5 minutes during her wellness visits so they can have their own 1-on-1 chat which our daughter really appreciates and enjoys. I can't say enough good things about her. The other doctors in that practice are good also, and I love their 24 hour doctor-on-call line. But Dr Chao is the reason we stay with them.
Sharing received recommendation for the Pediatrician from Tribeca PediatricsDr chao in the Boerum hill location, dean street!! We LOVE her, been with her for 4 years now. You’ll see a ton of recommendation for her in the bococa facebook parent group also. She takes her time to listen and we always feel good after seeing her. Generally a little wait even with appointment but that’s because she truly takes her time with you and NEVER rushes through anything.
Tribeca Pediatrics/sleep trainingWe go to Tribeca Pediatrics on Dean St and sleep trained our son around 2 months. Our doctor didn't force it upon us and let us know it was our own personal decision whenever or however we wanted to do it. He is now 27 months old!
Do you have a pediatricians you like?We love Dr. Talia Chao at Tribeca Pediatrics in Boerum Hill! We did want to sleep train pretty early on and she was fine with that but also did not push it. She has a laid back approach but also gives guidance in terms of eating and sleeping that is very helpful.
Review submitted via 2015 Birth SurveyWe love Dr. Chao. As an EBF, cloth diapering and attachment parenting family, we feel that Dr. Chai respects and supports our decisions. She is no nonsense, patient and down to earth. Our son responds well to her. She always takes the time to answer all of our questions. Insurance: Y. All fine. Based on a 2015 birth
Review submitted via 2015 Birth SurveyReview: I know they are kind of controversial but as an early childhood professional who studied child development I strongly agree with many of their beliefs and positions on early childhood. Insurance: Yes Based on a 2015 birth
Review submitted via 2015 Birth SurveyYou may have already heard that this practice is dogmatic about certain issues - sleeptraining from a very young age for example. I also find that when you have a concern or recurring issue (for us it was baby's inconsistent weight gain, and on occasion weight loss), they may not always take the time to discuss it fulsomely with the parent. In my case, I felt they were so unconvincing in their dismissal of my questions that I went to get a second opinion. In the end, this second doctor came to the same conclusion but took the time to walk me through her rationale. In the end, we stayed with Tibeca Boerum Hill in large part because they are around the corner. I'd say they are good for routine issues (weight check, well baby visits), no long waiting times, nice clean bright waiting room with toys. But if we have another serious issue again (hopefully we won't!) I will likely go see another doctor. Insurance: Y, no issues with insurance. Based on a Jan 2015 birth
(no subject)We see Dr. Tholany at Tribeca Pediatrics in Boerum Hill. I've been using the Dr. Sears schedule and have also opted to skip shots at times and I have never had any resistance from her. Don't know if that goes for all the Drs at different Tribeca Pediatrics locations, but I've always been grateful to be able to make my own decisions on that front (May 2012)
Review from 2011 PSP Pediatrician Survey(Review Feb.2011) Dr Tholany is a nice and friendly person. I like her although she seems to run the "Don't worry" line by me a bit too often. I am not someone who is neurotic nor easily stressed, but like to know about things. It seems that sometimes my questions are being answered with a generic one liner. But otherwise I am pretty happy with the practice. The pediatric nurse i the practice (can't recall her name right now) is very informative. INSURANCE: Oxford Freedom. No problems so far with filing claims.
Review from 2011 PSP Pediatrician Survey(Review Feb.2011) I've been very happy with the practice and Dr. Tholany. She explains things clearly and is a compassionate caregiver. They diagnosed my daughter's hip dysplasia at one month which meant she could get treatment right away. Dr Tholany is a strong believer in vaccinations, as I am, and my daughters has been following the recommended schedule. Dr. Tholany recommended waiting until 6 months to start solids, which meant I had to start supplementing (4 oz of formula a day) at 5 months since I wasn't pumping enough at work. I wish I had perhaps started solids a bit earlier to avoid that. The front office is prompt and well organized although a bit curt at times. The space is clean and nicely designed. I usually only have to wait about 5 minutes for each apt. We live in Fort Greene/Clinton Hill border and usually just walk there in about 20 minutes with stroller. Highly recommend. INSURANCE: Oxford Libert
Review from 2011 PSP Pediatrician Survey(Review Feb.2011) Dr. Tholany is very relaxed in her care. She's very competent and keeps me sane when it comes to all the colds and coughs, as well as offers plenty advice on how to handle eating battles, sleeping schedules, and temper tantrums. INSURANCE: United Heathcare- The best part of this practice is the office staff. Very professional, no issues ever with insurance.
Dr. Tholany - Review from 2011 PSP Doctor SurveyDelay Vaccines? Yes (Review Feb.2011) Dr. T is very patient and warm. She advocates vaccines but also respects alternative schedules. If you do get vaccines she's one of the fastest shot-givers there is--one of the few I've seen do the double-needle at once. Pretty impressive. I like the Tribeca Pediatrics "franchise" (not sure what to call it) because of the quality of service, online information, access to multiple locations (once we were able to get my son a strep test in the city at their Chelsea location). Appointments are done in a timely m anner. Offices and waiting areas are well designed with quality, mostly wooden toys. INSURANCE: Tribeca Pediatrics is one of the few places that takes Child Health Plus/ Empire -- thank god!
Review from 2011 PSP Pediatrician SurveyDelay Vaccines? Yes (Review Feb.2011) We love Dr. Tholany. She's incredibly nice, as well as intelligent and responsive. She was helpful in dealing with lead issues with our daughter. We love her (and the practice overall) low key approach to our child's health. She was also understanding and not at all judgemental about us having a home birth and doing a slower than usual vaccination schedule. We've also had great experiences with the Park Slope office and Dr. Gold when our daughter has been sick. INSURANCE: Blue Cross Blue Shield Child Health Plus. Everything's been fine and easy.
(no subject)Dr. Maryanne Tholany is absolutely top-notch. I have never met another doctor who follows-up on phone calls, gives great advice on problems both big and small and is a great listener. She is young and dynamic and is great with kids. Highly, highly recommended (Recommended 10/08)
(no subject)Fantastic, Dr Maryann Tholany. With this new location I just switched both of my kids back (used to go into the city). (Recommended 10/08)
(no subject)You will only have one pediatrician there, who is in the office 4 days a week (a nurse practitioner is there on Wednesday). They have a weekly "get to know the doctor" information session every Thursday at 4:30 PM, free, excellent information, mini-tour -- definitely recommended. (Recommended 10/08)
