    All of the staff- secretary, nurse, lactation consultant, and MD were incredibly professional, warm, considerate, respectful, and knowledgeable, I am one of those patients who needs a lot of information and does not take everything at face value – so medical professionals are usually taken aback by my questioning and skepticism.  The staff at this practice were patient and respectful of my questions and I felt they truly cared about my baby.  The MD was great- detail-oriented and spent the time to explain everything to me.  The lactation consultant was far more helpful than the FIVE I had consulted with beforehand.  Exceptional.

    Dr. Moskowitz and the entire staff at The Pediatric Center are caring, courteous and professional.  They are always available when needed and explain everything in a thoughtful and patient-centered manner.  Our family has been patients for 12 years.  We fully recommend Dr. Moskowitz to all.

    We have lots of choices and doctors closer to home but our kids won’t even consider any other Pediatrician.  Dr. Steve and his knowledgeable, professional and dedicated team treat each of our kids with patients and outstanding care – they are second to none!  I highly recommend Dr. Moskowitz and The Pediatric Center!

    The Pediatric Center’s exceptional doctors are also great listeners.  With three children, wo of whom have special needs, my boys’ neurologist sends all the reports to them, so when we go for our visit, they are alrady familiar with what’s going on.  My daughter had a rough first few years after being sick with RSV.  Dr. Chin was wonderful and proactive at handling anything my little girl would catch.  She’s amazing, and I am so thankful to have her as my children’s pediatrician!

    The Pediatric Center has been my kids’ pediatricians since they were toddlers.  My kids will still call on him for medical care or just advice, even though my oldest is 27 and my youngest 22.  This reflects the tremendous trust and confidence they have in Dr. Moskowitz and his staff and their comfort with confiding in them.  Dr. Moskowitz has a knack for relating to kids, his door is always open, and he really cares for his patients.
