Bayside Pediatric Specialists, PC
I've been going to Bayside Pediatrics since I was born and now 25 years later I refer all of my friends with children there as well. No matter which doctor I saw, whether it was my usual pediatrician Dr. Oster, or any of the other doctors when I walked in for a sick visit, I always felt comfortable. You never feel rushed when in the exam room and all of the doctors take time to discuss any questions you have.

Clients are treated as $$ numbers , rude staffs and doctors . Doctors walks in room without any greetings like pigs . We have da it when we were never told that there was a$20.00 bill until we get a letter from a collection agency . Where is communication? Could they have told called us or tell us during our next visit?In addition , after hours promise during interview was false . Beware .

Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
