    Read a review about this provider

    “We are glad we chose Tribeca Pediatrics. The office is well run - appointments are on time, the staff are friendly, and the environment is great.

    But we are most pleased with the care Benjamin receives from Leslie. Leslie is the primary reason why we love Tribeca Pediatrics. She is exceptional. She covers all the topics of concern but she also goes above and beyond the standard. When Benjamin was struggling with weight gain early on, Leslie spent extra time with us. She reassured us and took time to make sure I was able to speak to a new lactation consultant. We choose to see Leslie regularly for Benjamin's well visits because of her incredible way with babies and parents. She is a gift to the practice.”

Marinelle is patient, kind, gentle, soothing, to not only our son, but to me as well. She is so wonderful and calm. Our son was very sick and was sent from the doctors office to the hospital and the follow up calls we received were incredible.

    Read a review about this provider

    "Dr. Danijela was great! She was very engaging with Lake. Gave her a thorough exam and answered a question I had about Lake's breathing after waiting patiently as I found a video on my phone to show her. She did talk to me about sleep training which we had already started and confirmed we were headed in the right direction. And she explained the shots she was giving Lake and she did them quite fast which was nice for Lake.
    Dr. Danijela was awesome and there was an ease to the visit. Lake received excellent care. "
