I am moving to the Passaic/Clifton, NJ area and am so sad to be leaving our Brooklyn pediatrician. I am hoping to find a new doctor in the area or nearby (still learning my way around). Please PM me or reply if you have a pediatrician in the area that you love. It would be nice to find someone homebirth, selective/spreading out vaccine friendly, supportive of nursing even with small babies, and with a good sense of when to use antibiotics and when to wait, but what I really really really hope to find is someone who listens to me and truly seems to enjoy children and babies.
Northern New Jersey Pediatrician (Passaic/Clifton area)
Which Dr Rosen? In Teaneck?
My doctor is Dr Kofman on E 18 and Ave U which is sort of between Midwood and Sheepshead Bay. She believes in vax schedules and hospital birth (I think), but she just asks "are we doing any shots today" and will just nod if not or give suggestions if asked. Her office is cramped and there can be a wait, but she truly cares about my children, speaks directly to them even if they are ignoring her, and has a great sense about when to medicate, when to wait, etc, she listens to me and if I ask a question she answers it - treating me like the someone who just wants to learn more (I've seen specialists who treat questions as if I am being critical to how they practice medicine).
