His office staff is always pleasant to speak to. As a parent you want to be comfortable dealing with the office staff and know that they actually belong in PEDIATRICS. It has deterred me in the past from moving forward with the 2nd appointment in the past from another specialist.

Dr. Megahed and staff are attentive and caring. If there is ever an issue they take feedback very seriously and work to address the issue immediately. My daughter has been a patient for 11 years and we wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Our experience with Dr. Megahed's office was nothing but the best. I was extremely thankful for the office staff, who helped get my son's paperwork and referral settled to make the scheduling of our appointment effortless. When we arrived, the staff was very thorough, as we remain cautious with Covid-19. Our MA was sweet and attentive to my 2 year old. And, Dr. Megahed was very nice to explain what was going on with him medically. We were very appreciative for easing our concerns and the professionalism used. You can tell they all love children and have a gift with pediatrics.

Dr. Megahed and his nurse were incredible! My 5 year old boy is not a fan of going to the dr but he asked before we left when could we come back to see him. He spent so much time talking with him and getting to know him and so did his nurse. There was no sense of feeling rushed or like we were just another appointment to check off the list for the day. I seriously cannot day enough good things about him, his staff and our visit.

Dr. Megahed is the best! My daughter is 10 and has been with him since she was 7 months old. He has performed 2 surgeries on her, and I would have such a hard time trusting her with anyone else. He takes the time to get to know his patients and their parents as well. There is never a long wait at the office and everyone is so kind and respectful. I HIGHLY recommend taking your child to see him and his staff.

He is an amazing NS. He did an amazing job with both of my LOs surgeries and she adores him. He is good with kids and he is very informative. He does seem to have an aversion to anything that will hurt a LO like removing stitches and will shy away from conversations that may be painful to the parent but I still highly recommend him and won't take my LO anywhere else.
