Finding a good doctor is way more complicated than it should be!! I always have trouble finding a doctor that makes me feel comfortable with my parenting decisions (I actually had one yell at me about giving my daughter soy milk because she breaks out in a rash when given cows milk!) or that seems competent (another one kept demanding I feel the same milk-allergic child “cream, butter, and cheese” to “fatten her up”. Um….no?) or that has an office staff that’s pleasant to deal with!!
Some of our moms, however, seem to have great luck finding doctors!! Here’s what our readers recommend in terms of Prince William County kid friendly, mom happy Pediatricians! While the responses were overwhelmingly in favor of ALL Pediatrics, we promise this wasn’t a paid ad for them!!
“been going since my daughter was born she is now 7 and I have a 3 year old!! WE LOVE THEM!!!! They have an office in Lakeridge, Lorton and Alexandria and open 7 days a week including holidays!”
” I second ALL Pediatrics. They’re wonderful.”
” I was looking for recommendations not too long ago myself, and ALL Pediatrics got the most recommendations, but they refused to see my kids because of an error 2 years ago (they said I never cancelled an appt. for my son, and they won’t see people who no-show on their 1st appt.). The appt for my son and daughter were at the same time, so why would I cancel one and not the other? They said they’d see my daughter, but not my son. What kind of sense does that make, since I’m the responsible party for both of them??”
” I have to “second” the recomendation for All Pediatric’s! NP Cooney is who my kids see, and we LOVE her!”
“ALL pediatrics is where we go and are very happy!”
Another vote here for ALL Pediatrics – their Lake Ridge office is practically across the street from our house, so they get top marks for convenience 🙂 We usually see whoever is available, and I’ve been happy with everyone we’ve seen so far in the 3 years we’ve been going there…
LOVE ALL Pediatrics, especially Dr. Caplan and Dr. Farber, but you can’t go wrong with anyone there-they are all very nice!
I use All Pediatrics in Lake Ridge as I see many of you do too 🙂 No complains so far
All Pediactrics here!
ALL Pediatrics is who we use (for 11 years now). Only thing is to schedule a “wellness” visit takes 2-3 months. And then they couldn’t schedule my two boys together – plus I need to take them to the Alexandria office. But up until this point we’ve been very happy with them. Dr. Kaplan is great!
All Pediatrics….for almost 10 years! Lakeridge and now a newer office in Lorton. Alexandria office just too far away. I heard they now have a block of time set aside for walk-ins.
We switched to ALL Peds and LOVE it!!!!
Dr. Indira Sindha
“My kids go to Dr. Indira Sindha…I like her :)”
I actually go to NOVA Pediatrics. Not my fave.
I actually like NoVA pediatrics. I have twins and they have taken good care of them. I especially like Ginger Bietrich. The nurses are wonderful, especially Amber and Dawn.
I go to NOVA and really like them. You can always talk to a nurse if you need advice, and everyone is really nice. They can always squeeze us in in an emergency. I am not fond of 2 of the dr’s, but the good news is there are lots that I do like (and I second Michelle’s recommendation of Ginger Beecher. She’s awesome!)
I love NOVA peds – Just not Dr. Seidman (one of the partners) Dr. Hamilton does all of our well baby/physicals and we LOVE the Nurse practioner Ginger Beecher for our two with – Ezcema, Asthma and allergies! Also Dr. Rodgers and Dr. Meyers. Very down to earth, do not push drugs,antibiotic or meds if not neccessary. I have four kid 7, 4, 4, and 3. We switched from Woodbridge Peds when my oldest was two and a Dr [performed a procedure without explaining]
I DESPISE NOVA Pediatrics. They take FOREVER to get you in a room and to see the dr. It also just has such an old and outdated feel. We switched to ALL Peds and LOVE it!!!!
