I took to my local Mom group and asked the important question of “who is your favorite pediatrician in the Lehigh Valley?” As a Mom, one of the first decisions you will make for your child is which Pediatrician they will see. Being poked and prodded at can be a scary experience for you and your baby, so you want to find someone who is knowledgeable, gentle, welcoming and who you can trust with your child’s health. Also someone who doesn’t make you feel rushed and truly listens to your questions or concerns!
I recommend scheduling a tour or visit with a local pediatric office to get a feel for the staff and environment before your baby is born. You’ll also get a good sense of the distance and if it’s conveniently located to your home. I’ll never forget the excitement during my pregnancy while visiting my pediatrician office and just envisioning my next visit with my new baby. As a Mom, you’ll soon discover that you know your child better than anyone, and we really are their biggest advocate; especially when it comes to their health and wellness.
LVPG Pediatrics in Richlandtown. I wanted to start with my own Pediatrician. I am a Mother to 4 little girls, and have had the same Pediatrician since my first born was just a baby. Dr. Jill E. Colabroy, MD from LVPG Pediatrics in Richlandtown has been so wonderful to work with. My girls always look forward to seeing Dr. Colabroy and we feel so comfortable during our visits. She has young kids herself and is very relatable while providing the best care.
A large number of Mom’s sounded off for their love of Dr. Laura E. Darrow, DO who is also a Pediatrician with LVPG Pediatrics in Richlandtown. New Mom Samantha shared, “she is great for a new mom. She always makes us feel supported!”
Children’s Healthcare. Located off of Pond Road in Allentown, Children’s Healthcare has 8 Pediatric Providers, Dr. Kenneth Toff, DO FAAP FACOP IBCLC, Dr. Laurie Cohen, DO FAAP IBCLC, Dr. Lydia Boateng, MD FAAP IBCLC, Dr. Anna Linderman, MD FAAP, Mr. Brian Pepe, MSPAS, PA-C CAT, Mrs. Brandi Burns, MMSPAS PA-C, Mr. Michael Flowers, MMSPAS PA-C and Mrs. Katelyn Weeber (Dane), MMSPAS PAC. Mother of 2, Sam shared, “they are just so friendly and caring.”
They also have the Lehigh Valley Breastfeeding Center right upstairs.
St. Luke’s Coopersburg Pediatrics. Dr. Elizabeth A. Gibson, MD, Dr. Eva M. Mayer, MD and Dr. Samone E. Nore, MD. Kelly, Mom of 3 shared, “Dr. Gibson has a special place in my heart for being so caring and understanding during the newborn and postpartum stage. She along with Nurse Sam gave me special care and attention during my son’s well check when my postpartum was acting up and I was in tears nearly the entire appointment. Dr. Eva Mayer was also amazing! She is always talking with the kids and making them feel comfortable before she begins an exam! Always so patient and kind.”
Joudi, Mom of 3 shared, “Samone Nore from St Luke’s Coopersburg Pediatrics! She is the best! I can’t recommend her more.”
Miller Heights Medical Associates. Dr. Brian D. Kuronya, D.O.
Dr. Brian Kuronya, DO is a Family Medicine Specialist in Bethlehem, PA. He is affiliated with medical facilities such as Lehigh Valley Hospital – Cedar Crest and St. Luke’s Hospital – Bethlehem Campus. Although he is in Family Medicine, I was blown away by how many Lehigh Valley Mom’s referred Dr. Kuronya for their newborn and pediatric care.
Dr. Klitsch also came highly regarded by other Lehigh Valley Moms.
There are many, many providers and choices when searching for a pediatrician. I hope these recommendations give you a strong starting point when searching for the best Lehigh Valley Pediatrician. During your pregnancy, checking with family and friends on who they recommend and making sure the office accepts your insurance is a great starting point when finding your best match. You’ll soon discover that having the right medical professional caring for your child is a very important decision and all providers are unique in their care.
