Review of Dr. Pena

-New York, NY |

We love Dr Pena! She has given us two beautiful children and been a wonderful dr both during pregnancy and after. She is always supportive and clearly provides lots of options to help you decide the best path forward. She is helpful and easy to talk to as well.

Review of Dr. Pena

- in Cliffside Park, NJ |

I've been a patient of Dr. Pena's for 8 years and I wouldnt want to change doctors even if I lost my job!! Dr. Pena is always so busy but very communicative and does not rush you out as if you were on an assembly line. The staff is also very welcoming and personable. I've had very good experiences throughout

Review of Dr. Fridel

- in New York, NY |

I would highly Dr. Fridel to anyone looking for an OB/GYN in the ny area. I have been seeing her throughout my first pregnancy in which she has made me feel very comfortable throughout with her extensive knowledge, honesty, genuine bedside manner, and kind but real attitude. She takes precautions when need be and is very open/transparent, something I appreciate in a doctor, especially one who is delivering a baby.

Review of Dr. Faris

- |

Dr. Faris was incredible. I felt like I was talking to a friend and not a doctor. She took her time, listened, had amazing bedside manner and just made me feel a comfort I have not felt before which enabled me to be more open / honest with her about my care and things important to me to discuss. I have already recommended her to friends and just feel extremely lucky that I got in while she is still accepting new patients - I’m sure that won’t last!

Review of Dr. Defeo

- in New York |

Dr. DeFeo is very professional and tentative to the needs and concerns of his patients and their parents. He makes the time to explain the circumstances and options available. We have four children and have been with Dr. DeFeo for over 12 years. We feel very secure in his care.

Review of Dr. Wasserman

- in New York City, NY |

Dr. Wasserman has a great demeanor with children, and is wonderful at putting them at ease—even those who may not be the biggest fans of the doctor’s office (like my son with Autism). She also listens to the parent’s concerns and gives very digestible diagnoses in layman’s terms, so everything is easily understood. Wait times in the office are very minimal. Overall, she makes a dr’s visit less anxiety-filled, so both the child and parent can leave with a smile on their faces.

Review of Dr. Smerd

- |

Dr. Smerd has been my primary care doctor for several years. She always takes the time to listen to me when I come in, and if she doesn't have an answer to whatever's wrong, she's willing to be upfront about that and refer me to a specialist who can help. She's got a good bedside manner, and seems to genuinely care about her patients.
