Great to find this community! We have just moved to Astoria from Chicagoland. I am seven and a half months pregnant with my first baby and need to find a pediatrician. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I would also be happy to connect with local moms and moms-to-be.
I can't help you with a pediatrician in Astoria - I'm meeting couple of pediatricians myself in next 2 weeks, but they are in Manhattan (Tribeca Pediatrics and Center for Continuum Healht). Let me know what you are looking for in a pediatrician, and I can ask couple of friends re:Astoria.
Congratulations on your pregnancy! I'm also expecting my first - so exciting!
Feel free to PM me!
I am also looking at Continuum Health but still hope to find something closer than Manhattan... They look the closest from their site and reviews to my ideal pediatrician. If only they were closer... I'll send you a PM with more details. And congratulations on your pregnancy!!!
If you have a car, there is another pediatrician that is decent in New Hyde Park, but that's a good 30 minutes by car.
WElcome to Astoria and congrats on the little baby
We also go to Continuum. Have lived in Astoria for several years. This question comes up a LOT in our Holistic Moms Network and pretty much everyone goes into Manhattan. I recently heard about a place in Long Island City with a small office, two doctors and the main doctor isn't accepting patients. Can't find the info right now and have to finish packing but just wanted to write something and get subscribed to this thread for future updates.
