Addington, Tony MD

Akinsanya-Beysolow, Iyabode MD
Atlanta Pediatric Partners, Atlanta
Dr. Beysolow has been an awesome pediatrician for our children for almost 11 years. My mother and I interviewed Dr. Beysolow before my first child was born. My first interaction with Dr. Beysolow   confirmed she was the best pediatrician. No more pediatricians were interviewed after her. She was what my husband and I wanted in a pediatrician. Dr. Beysolow is caring, knowledgeable, fun loving and is concerned about the growth and development of  her patients.

Baker, Reneathia MD
Kaiser Permanente, Jonesboro
Dr. Baker is very patient and friendly. She always takes the time to listen to my concerns and offers great advice! I love that even when my child’s test results are normal, Dr. Baker or a nurse from her office calls to let us know. She is very thoughtful. She has called to check on my children and even gotten a birthday card for my daughters 5th birthday. My children love to visit Dr. Baker.

Bataille, Fredly MD
Intown Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, Atlanta
Dr. Bataille is the hardest doctor to get an appointment because he’s always booked up because EVERYONE loves him! He’s kind, patient, understanding, empathetic, caring and just an overall nice person. He really cares about his patients and it shows!

Blair, Fiona MD
ABC Pediatrics, Stone Mountain
The entire staff is amazing. Dr. Blair is very knowledgeable. Most important ... the wait time is minimal. Your time is just as important as theirs.

Bufe, Ashley MD
DeKalb Pediatric Center, Decatur
She was wonderful with my newborn and calming and guiding to this nervous, exhausted, first time mom. I appreciate her thoroughness with exam and selecting any tests, labs, treatment but nothing that was unnecessary. She spends plenty of time answering questions, no matter how ridiculous they may seem, with patience and compassion. The practice is also very helpful and accessible with their on call line when needed at the undoubtedly most inconvenient time.  

Butler-Rice, Angela MD
Amazing Pediatrics, Tucker
Amazing Pediatrics is clean, friendly office. …  She is a wonderful doctor who takes time to listen to parents as well as the patient. She is kind, gentle, thorough and explains in detail everything she will do before she does it so everyone is comfortable and OK with the examination. Extended hours are helpful, too. We love her as our daughters pediatrician , I only wish she had a practice for adults.

Carter, Stephen MD
West Atlanta Pediatrics, Dallas & Lithia Springs
My daughter was thankfully diagnosed in time by Dr. Carter with Kawasaki’s disease before it could cause any permanent heart damage.  I hear so many stories where a child’s symptoms are dismissed for something else so I am forever grateful to Dr. Carter and his staff.  The nurses at West Atlanta Pediatrics are so caring. The ones that were present for this diagnosis were so supportive to my child and myself as I sat there and dealt with a lot of emotions. Anytime I have to take one of my daughters in for an appointment, we never wait long and are never rushed. The doctors take their time to listen to any of my concerns.

Chastain, Sue MD
Georgetown Pediatrics, Johns Creek
Dr. Chastain is an exceptional because she takes the time to know the patient and to listen to each concern. She is very detailed, very smart and caring. She loves her patients and I see that every time we go!

Cole, Shannon MD
Gwinnett Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Duluth
Dr. Cole is very knowledgeable and approachable physician.  She really listens to both parents and patients alike. I have taken my son and daughter to her practice for over 15 years and she is our favorite doctor in the practice.  My kids are now teens and they are very comfortable with Dr. Cole.  She is very proactive and goes to great lengths to help solve any medical issues.  She follows up and makes sure my kids are healthy.  She treats us like part of her family.  

Colton, Kevin MD
Children’s Medical Group, Atlanta
Dr. Colton is kind, patient, and knowledgeable. The office staff is friendly and available for whatever is needed. They have great morning drop-in hours on Saturday. We have been with Dr. Colton for many years, and he’s been the perfect balance of straightforward and factual, while also taking our family’s values into consideration.

Cox, Mary MD
Snellville Pediatrics, Snellville
Dr. Cox understands a child’s mind. We have been going to her since our son was born. He is now 5 years old. She really takes the time to listen and connect with the child. My son said it best: “Dr. Cox is the best doctor in the world!”

Doyle, Jessica MD
Oakhurst Pediatrics, Decatur
Dr. Doyle is an exceptional pediatrician. Not only is she knowledgeable, but she is informative while still being respectful of my parenting choices. I never feel pressured or judged by her, which makes me trust her opinion and advice so that I can feel equipped to make my own decisions regarding my child. She is wonderful with children – gentle, sweet, intuitive. She is a mother herself, laid back yet still attentive, which is incredibly reassuring for first-time parents. I have never waited more than a few minutes, and have been able to easily get a same day appointment. Every staff member has been warm and engaging.

Drayton, Dekisha MD
Princeton Lakes Pediatrics, Atlanta and College Park
They have always been very professional, expedient and courteous. The environment is pleasant and the staff is very knowledgeable and willing to investigate to find the best fit for our daughters needs. Dr. Drayton and the entire team are really top-notch.

Ellis, Annisha MD

She is always great with the children and still takes the time to make sure I understand everything.

Fleming, Shea MD
Peachtree Park Pediatrics, Atlanta
She is very caring and down-to-mommy-level earth!  She never rushes and spends adequate time with my children.  She is very competent and I trust her to the utmost. Did I mention she had great bedside manners and a great sense of humor?

Flowers, Runette MD
South DeKalb Pediatrics, Decatur
The best bed side manners I’ve ever seen! She also doesn’t give her patients vaccinations. She makes the nurses do that, so that her patients won’t be afraid of her!

Forbes, Robert MD
Cobb Pediatrics, Marietta
Dr. Forbes is fantastic!  He is so gentle and kind. We have never had to wait more than 15 minutes to be seen and we can always be seen the same day for sick appointments. Dr.Forbes is very patient, can be goofy with the children, asks questions directed at both parent and patient and will discuss any issue or worry I have. I can’t say enough great things about him!  He genuinely cares for the kids and their wellbeing.

Foster Jr., Harry MD
Dr. Fosters, Lithonia
Dr. Foster has served so many families in the Lithonia area. I have friends that are in the late 30s and he was their pediatrician. Dr. Foster seems to always know the problem and not so quick to give out a RX if not needed. I love the old school ways. The location and hours are perfect; the wait might be long but you are guaranteed to see Dr. Foster Dr. Foster he takes his time with your child and will even blow up a balloon to see the kids smile. I recommend him to everyone I know.  

Gaines, Julia MD
Cobb Pediatrics, Marietta
Dr. Gaines is by far one of the best providers with whom I’ve dealt. She is always on top of things. She listens, she encourages, but she’s realistic. Just because a book says it doesn’t mean it’s realistic. I love that she’s practical in that way. She knows that if a toddler doesn’t want broccoli, it’s not a battle worth fighting. Move on. But, she isn’t disinterested or dismissive. She hears your concerns, and she’s willing to put in referrals if needed. She takes a parent’s concerns seriously – she believes a parent’s gut feeling means something because that’s who spends the most time with a young child. This entire practice is wonderful. They took exceptional care of my newborn with jaundice. The techs who had to prick my baby on a daily basis were so gentle and compassionate. We also really appreciate this practice having Saturday hours and working with our schedule.

Gauthier, James MD
Kaiser Permanente, Decatur
As a first time mom, I needed the calm, cool and collected nature of Dr. G. He is incredibly knowledgeable, compassionate, down to earth, and knows when to be aggressive or conservative with diagnostics and treatments. I had many moments of panic when Dr. G would calmly talk me off the ledge. Although my child can be quite a handful, he always has a great bedside manner that often calms her down. We love Dr. G!

Godfrey-Kittle, Andrew MD
DeKalb Pediatric Center, Decatur
They are very kid friendly. They appeal to both of my kids age 1 and 4. We have seen Dr. Godfrey-Kittle the most but have seen several of the other pediatricians at this practice and they are all wonderful. If I have a question or a concern, the nurse line is always available. The hours are great and they will give an appointment the day of if needed.

Greenwald, Jodi MD
North Fulton Pediatrics, Roswell
On the second morning following the birth of my daughter, Dr. Greenwald came into my room on rounds, and told me how beautiful and perfect she was! This was in stark contrast to the information shared by a different pediatrician the morning before. The only word I remembered coming from his mouth was “cancer.” My daughter was born with a Giant Congenital Melanocytic Nevus. She was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen! But her “birthmark” turned out to be a bit more concerning than I’d originally thought. Dr. Greenwald assured me on that morning that – together – we would work to find the best specialists and do all that we could to reduce her risk of cancer. And she never let me down.  Today, almost 12 years later, I still depend on Dr. Greenwald’s calm, loving approach. And I know, beyond any doubt, that she would do everything in her power to make sure my four children get the very best medical care possible.

Grosso, Ana MD
Kaiser Permanente, Duluth
Dr. Grosso is the best of the best! Not only is she knowledgeable but she is kind and loving to her tiny patients. She goes above and beyond to make everyone comfortable under her care (including us overly protective first-time moms). I would never change her for anything in the world and would totally recommend her to anyone looking for the best care for their young.

Hammad, David MD
Hammad Platner & Charles-May Pediatrics, Atlanta
Dr. Hammad’s practice has served many Intown Atlanta families. His care is like no other. He has a listening ear and a greater understanding of today’s children. Dr. Hammad will give your child the most compassionate , yet thorough, treatment you can find. He welcomes questions and makes sure you leave his office knowing that your child is receiving the best up to date care.

Hardin, Amy MD
Northside Pedatrics, Woodstock
She takes time to know my kids!  She is very knowledgeable.  She always stays up-to-date on research, new meds to the market, specialty doctors throughout the state (she doesn’t pick the most popular, she researches who will be best to help her patients), and she is very practical.  She’s so wonderful, that we drive an hour to continue to see her!

Harris, Laura MD
Piedmont Pediatrics, Atlanta
She is very in tune with answering questions and putting your “new mama” worries to rest.

Hassel McNeil, Stephanie MD
Pampa Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Marietta
From visiting our child when he was three days old in the emergency room, to helping us through ear infections and every day wellness with a 2 year, Dr. Hassel has been an exceptional doctor and person. She educates us as parents to help us grow, and gives our child the best care. She has an easy nature that instantly calms and soothes him and us.

Herd, Hal MD
Gwinnett Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Sugar Hill
Dr. Herd is amazing with our two young boys.  My husband and I value his experience and trusted his guidance as we navigated some health concerns with our 2-year1old.  He has built a wonderful practice full of amazing doctors, and we are so thankful he is still working with patients.

Herrmann, Carol MD
Rainbow Kids Pediatrics, Decatur
Dr. Herrmann knows each and every kid, remembers your family, and celebrates your kids just being kids. She is a firm believer in holistic medicine and never pushes prescriptions or antibiotics if they aren’t absolutely needed.   Her office is very responsive via email and phone, they make every accommodation possible to help each family, and the office is small and definitely kid-friendly. It’s not overwhelmingly clinical either.  She takes time to listen to parents, she talks to kids like they matter, and she truly cares. She’s also very astute in her medical knowledge and caught a life-threatening heart condition in our daughter when she was only 4 weeks old. Our cardiologist later said that the defect would have been nearly impossible for a pediatrician to catch in the office and commended Dr. Herrmann for her keen ear.

Herron, Merinda MD
Herron Pediatics, Atlanta
Dr. Herron is kind and personal. She is quick to share her own mothering stories with you, and help you feel that you’re not alone when you’re having trouble with your children. She has a private practice in Midtown Atlanta ; also, she will see you in a bind, even if it means coming in before business hours.

Hill, Andrea MD
Monroe Pediatrics, Monroe
Dr. Hill has been our peds doctor since 2006.  She has always taken the extra time to listen to this mom and shares my concerns as if Whitley were her own child.  My daughter has asthma and so does Dr. Hill.  We have always felt welcome in her office and my daughter even makes her a special treat each year at Christmas (Chex Mix).  She is quick to give hugs and always ends her visit with “feel better.” Monroe Pediatrics recently opened a second location in Loganville.

Hill, Allison MD
Northside Pediatrics, Woodstock
Dr. Hill is extremely personable, professional and makes my children and me very comfortable during each visit. She is very thorough and  always provides us with great advice. We’re actually moving across the country, but we will be traveling back to Woodstock  a few times a year, so Dr. Hill can remain the primary care physician for my two children.

Hinchcliffe, Annette MD
Georgetown Pediatrics, Johns Creek
Dr. Hinchcliffe is very caring, and has a wonderful bedside manner. She is very knowledgeable, and articulate. I love her interaction with my children.  Every appointment I’ve attended,  I left very satisfied. I recommend her to  a lot of people and they are pleased  as well.  

Hopkins, Jeffrey MD
Northside Pediatrics, Sandy Springs
Dr. Hopkins is fantastic. He’s great with both of my kids and helps them feel at ease at their appointments. When my youngest was born, she had some health issues and he was very helpful coordinating care among several specialties. We have always been visited by one of the pediatricians from the office when my daughter has been hospitalized. It makes you feel like you matter as a patient.

Hutchins-Howard, Angela MD
Zaman Pediatrics, Snellville
Doctor is always willing to listen and consider your opinion.  She talks to children and engages them. Extended hours; friendly staff.

Jackson, Vanna MD
Sandy Springs Pediatrics, Atlanta
She has a level of expertise, manner of care, looks out for children’s best interest, helpful to parents, takes her time and provides quality/truly individualized care for each patient. She explains information well to parents, and the children absolutely love her!

Johnson, Yolanda MD
Gwinnett Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Dacula and Sugar Hill
Dr. Johnson is one of the best pediatricians (and doctors) that I have met, and I have met many due to my daughter having several chronic health conditions.  When my daughter has to go to the pediatrician’s office, Dr. Johnson is always up-to-date on the tests, procedures, and visits that my daughter has had with other specialists since her last visit. She is friendly, easy to talk to, and always helps my daughter to feel comfortable during the appointment.  Additionally, when my daughter was in the hospital recently, Dr. Johnson called me to check on my daughter.  We feel very fortunate to have her in our community.

Kanaan, Emily MD
Oakhurst Pediatrics, Decatur
Dr. Kanaan is very welcoming and patient, supporting parents in their own choices (while making clear one specific commitment – to vaccinations) and never making parents feel rushed. She is warm and kind, and the practice is very attractive, clean, and user-friendly. She and her colleague offer an email service on which they’ll receive pics and questions, often saving us worry or trips to the office. When our son had a serious accident she called us back (on a Sunday, through the calling service) and took the time we needed to ask questions and determine whether to take him to the ER. She supports natural birth and breastfeeding, also offering a lactation consultant who helped us early on. And she supports our hope to minimize medication, using antibiotics, for example, only when absolutely necessary. She has a lot of fans and we’re a few of them!

Kaur, Sarvpreet MD
Lilburn Pediatrics, Lilburn
I have two kids, 4 and 8, and Dr. Sarvpreet Kaur has been their doctor since they were babies. She is always so nice and helpful, and takes her time to explain what is wrong with them and how I can help them get better, besides giving them their medicine. But most important,  my kid just love to see her; more than a doctor, she is like a friend to them which makes it easier for me to take them to the doctor when they get sick.

Kelly, Linda MD
Dunwoody Pediatrics, Alpharetta
Everything is wonderful, from phone calls to visits. We have been with them many years – the whole practice is amazing! Dr Kelly goes above and beyond. She is very knowledgeable, she listens, she truly cares , she never makes you feel rushed. She is very thorough and thoughtful! We have special needs with one child and she is nothing but amazing with her as well!

Kendall, Cheryl MD
We Care Pediatric and Adolescent Group, East Point
I found Dr. Kendall when I was in search of a new pediatrician for my 4year-old son who had been having allergy and asthma issues. My prior doctor’s fast-paced practice made it impossible to receive personalized care. Dr. Kendall and staff addressed all of my needs and concerns regarding the asthma diagnosis. She gave me an at-home plan for every scenario and all the necessary inhalers and nebulizer for home and  school. I truly appreciate her presence in my son’s life.

King, David MD
Childrens Medical Group, Atlanta
The practice is always available when we need it. All the staff is super friendly and helpful. All the doctors are wonderful but Dr. King tops all if them. He is friendly, honest and is full of knowledge. Always makes us feel comfortable at our most scariest times.

Kolesky, Rebecca MD
DeKalb Pediatric Center, Decatur
My 3-year-old recently broke her collarbone. Emergency medicine missed it, but during a follow up with Dr. Kolesky, she spotted in within 60 seconds! She sent us for an X-ray and she was right. She is an incredible physician, and the entire practice is just fabulous. Great care, great hours, and they always can get you in for an appointment within hours for an acute problem.

Krishnamurthy, Vidya MD
Pediatrics and Genetics, Alpharetta
Doctors and nurses are kid friendly, and office has convenient / flexible appointment times, answering our queries through phone, etc..

Kubagawa, Homare MD
Gwinnett Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Lawrenceville
He takes the time to really talk to the kids and get to know them as people and not just as patients. He is also very willing to answer any and all questions from parents.  Whenever I’ve had to take my daughter in for an appointment when she’s ill, he always calls and checks on her the next day himself – no nurse or receptionist ... HE calls. He makes you feel like your child really matters to him.

Lama, Juan MD
Southern Crescent Pediatrics, Riverdale, Stockbridge, Ellenwood
Respectful of everyone! Cares a lot about helping children, doesn’t just medicate, makes sure medication is necessary! Staff is very friendly, too. When you see great relationships with doc and staff, it says a lot about their kindness.  Have only had exceptional care and experiences with this doctor!

Leard, Steven MD
Eagle’s Landing Pediatric Associates, Stockbridge
Dr. Leard is phenomenal pediatrician. His staff is friendly and my daughter enjoys going to the doctor. Dr. Leard is informative and sympathetic to new parents. I worked a weird schedule at one point, and they worked with me when scheduling appointments. Dr. Leard rocks!

LeDuc, Elizabeth MD
Center for Pediatric Wellness, Atlanta
Best practice in town hands down. Dr LeDuc has years of experience and my daughter absolutely loves her. You will never feel as a “number” at her practice – she cares for her patients and goes above and beyond for them. She has great approach and most importantly LISTENS. She is always only a phone call away. Could not even imagine taking my child to some other pediatrician. Very friendly staff at her practice.

Loventhal, Gary MD

His level of care is impeccable.  He is extremely knowledgeable.  He does not rush you in and out.  He takes his time and makes sure you understand everything about your appointment.

Lynes, Nathan MD
West Atlanta Pediatrics, Lithia Springs

DeKalb Pediatrics is a group practice where all the doctors are great! Easy same day scheduling, no judgements, quick visits, and quick response times for phone calls. Dr. Marcus is funny, easy to talk to, always shares a story about her own struggles with her kids to let you know you’re doing good, and she can keep your baby entertained.

Marcus, Sally MD
Northside Pediatrics, Woodstock
Dr. Marcus is a very patient, open, friendly and caring physician. She never makes me feel bad or that I’m wasting her time when I have unusual or “stupid” new parent questions. She is great with our son. All the staff in her office are warm and amazing.

Meeks, Jessalyn MD
Children’s Medical Group, Atlanta
Dr. Meeks has a great bedside manner, for baby and parent.  She always takes the time to explain any test results, what to expect next, and answer questions.  It’s also clear that she keeps up with the current medical recommendations.  The office is bright and clean, with sick hours on Saturday and Sunday and most holidays.  For sick visits, I’ve seen several of the other physicians, and I’ve been just as pleased with them.  You can’t go wrong with Children’s Medical.

Mekelburg, Kirsten MD
Children’s Wellness Center, Atlanta
I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Mekelburg! She is truly an exceptional pediatrician, and all around person. Her quality of care and time spent with each patient is amazing and she genuinely gets to know each of her kids and their families. We never leave with any concerns or unanswered questions, which is very important as a mom. My daughter also enjoys going to the doctor, which I never thought could be possible! The location and hours are very convenient and it is never a hassle to get my little one in, even on short notice. The office atmosphere is warm, friendly, and nurturing to parents and kids of all ages. I would highly recommend Dr. Mekelburg!

Miller, Rogena MD
WellStar Smyrna Pediatrics, Smyrna
I’ve been with Dr. Miller since I had my first child in 2009. I loved her so much that she’s been my daughter’s pediatrician for the past six years and is now pediatrician to my twin girls born in July 2015. I simply love how she treats her patients with respect and care. She takes the time to educate parents and makes all my children feel at ease. She truly has a caring spirit and it shows in the work she does. She has never made me feel rushed and her staff has always been wonderful. I no longer live in the Smyrna area but will continue to come to her office!

Molock, Suzanne MD
Gwinnett Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Dacula
She is the best at making my children feel comfortable being in a doctor’s office. She always has a great attitude, no matter if it’s busy. She has on numerous occasions called and checked back up on my kids after their sick visits. She even was on the phone herself with my insurance company when there was a issue with them covering medical equipment that was needed for my son. She truly is one of a kind. We wouldn’t go to anybody else.

Nalley, James MD
Wellstar Medical Group North Cobb Pediatrics, Kennesaw

Ransom, Lindsey MD
West Atlanta Pediatrics, Lithia Springs
Where do I start? Dr. Ransom is such a wonderful doctor to both my 15-year-old and my 11-month-old daughters. You never feel like she is in a rush to see the next patient. She takes her time, answers all of our questions, is very attentive and calms any fears that we (either myself or my girls) may have. Even if we have questions after hours, she and the nursing staff always are quick to respond and are beyond helpful. If for any reason she were to leave, I would follow her to her next office.

Reisman, A. Gerald MD
Dunwoody Pediatrics, Dunwoody
We’ve been going to Dunwoody Pediatrics and been seeing Dr. Reisman for over 15 years. He is the best out there. He listens to you and then shares his input. He is very gentle with kids and extremely knowledgeable. I trust his judgement. We are very thankful for him.

Roberts, Lisa MD

Roe, David MD
Piedmont Pediatrics, Atlanta
When my newborn needed to be admitted to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta for jaundice, Dr. Roe was so kind and helpful. He called us the night when my baby was admitted at 10 p.m. to check in and then again at 6 a.m. He always answers every annoying first-time mom question I have. I exclusively breastfed my son until 6 months and although my son is small, he never pressured me to use formula to add to his weight, unnecessarily. The practice has Saturday hours for sick kids and the nurse line is great.

Ruddock-Solomon, Noelle MD
C.A.R.E Pediatrics, Duluth
She is not “prescription” happy. As a mother who values natural health alternatives, I appreciate a pediatrician that can make health conscious / natural recommendations.

Rudnicki, Kerith MD
Children’s Medical Group, Atlanta
Pediatrician has great bedside manner, very attentive and detail-oriented and wonderful with children. This practice is really wonderful . We have seen numerous physicians and every single one has been just as good. The office hours are great and the wait times are never long. It’s really great that they have a well side of the room and a sick side of the room. The waiting rooms have really fun train tables and things to entertain the children while they wait as well as a TV showing movies. Everyone working there is very courteous and friendly.

Sells, Deneta MD
Intown Pediatrics, Atlanta
Dr. Sells is an amazing physician, with a beautiful kid-friendly, organized, well put together practice. I love that on Mondays her practice is open late for working moms such as myself.

Sherwinter, Julius MD

He is so friendly kind and knowledgeable. I feel comfortable with everything he tells me and he does not like to prescribe meds to children. Graduated in 1977, he has a lot of knowledge of home remedies. I’m so glad that I found him. He is like a caring grandpa but it’s our doctor.

He lends both ears to all your concerns and listens very intently without rushing you through your thought process.  He is very patient with the kids and so calm, that even if they’re distressed his demeanor puts them at ease! My husband and I love him!! I’ll wait weeks just to see him if it is of no emergency.

Welsh-Evans, Monique MD
Gwinnett Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Dacula
Dr. Evans is great with my autistic daughter. She has seen her since she was born, four years ago. Dhe will stay an listen to all my mommy worries and will sit and explain them until I fully understand. She does not hesitate to do tests and if she can’t figure it out and has to refer you, she will walk you through the consult.

Wilburn, Kelly MD
Dunwoody Pediatrics, Dunwoody
Dr. Wilburn has been our pediatrician since we moved to Atlanta in 2005.  It’s time for my kids to transition to an adult physician, but we can’t quite make the move.  We are so comfortable with her and she knows my kids personalities so well.  She is like a family member after all these years of strep, sinus infections and viruses.
