I have much older children and haven’t had a baby for awhile. I am BH now expecting, and I’m thinking of starting with a new pediatrician. I’m really not that thrilled with the practice I’ve been using for my older children. I find some of the doctors to be obnoxious and have a terrible bedside manner. BH we don’t spend much time at the doctor’s office so it hasn’t been foremost on my mind, but now with a new one on the way, I feel like maybe it’s a good time to find a new dr. I’m the kind of person who generally follows medical advice, so that isn’t the issue. I just don’t like my concerns being brushed aside (I’m concerned about one of my children’s growth, and the doctor there was so unhelpful and not understanding at all. I ended up taking her to a specialist behind their backs, which I’m realizing isn’t normal. And btw, I was rightfully concerned.) I’ve also encountered major attitude from the head doctor for literally no reason. He was on call one night when I called (I probably called after hours less than I can count on one hand, in 15 years), and was just completely rude. And overall he is an obnoxious doctor. Anyway, which practice would you recommend in Lakewood? I’m not looking for an overbooked practice with lines out the door. Would just like a well educated and knowledgeable doctor who is pleasant to deal with.

Looking for the same since Dr. Hirsch from chemed passed away Sad
We’ll never have another doc like him.
That being said, chemed just brought in 3 doctors from Jersey Shore who are supposed to be great.

I actually work at Chemed, and I agree they have top doctors. But I prefer to keep work and personal separate, so although I’ve toyed with the idea, I’d rather find someplace else.

I saw an ad that Dr Wertzberger is opening up a practice. (Maybe in the BP).
I don't know anything about the practice though.

I moved from a doctors practice that I really hated, to Chemed. The difference is unbelievable. I use Dr Beizem a lot, but find that all the doctors and PA's are really kind and gentle with my children. They give me referrals and scripts without any issue. Their wait time has also really improved in recent years.

I heard rumors that Dr Lerner is how working in Chemed, if that’s true, I highly recommend him.

Edited: sorry I just read that you work there and don’t wanna to be a patient there. Maybe this post will be helpful for someone else.

According to Google, this is the new practice -
Our Medical providers include Dr. Samuel Werzberger, Dr. Steven Diamond and Dr. Israel Zyskind.

Anyone familiar with any of these doctors?

I used to use Dr Werzberger before I switched to Chemed, and liked him very much as a Dr. Very pleasant and kind to the children. I can't remember anything more specific. Hope this limited info helps.

All of these urgent care places have a Supervising physician but theyre not actively care. Not sure how that works but I know from other places that thats just how it works.

From your initial post, I would guess that you would be very happy at Dr. Fenster. It may take a while to get in, since they have a waiting list, but maybe you have that amount of time before birth? They generally have extrememly short wait time (but you must come on time!), listen to parents well, great bedside manners, and it's a small practice so the doctors really get to know each family. As long as you vaccinate. He doesn't do well with those that don't.
It's worth the call. 7327750222

I used to use Dr. Fenster. Switched in January when he stopped taking UHC. By the time I switched there was minimum half an hour wait time every single time I went. And he kept getting new pa/np’s so I no longer felt like they knew me. It also become increasingly difficult to choose which doctor you wanted and his hours were cut shorter than they originally were as well. I also could not get an after school well visit appointment without a six month waiting period... when I joined the practice originally it was small, they knew you, they were on time and a pleasure. By now I’m not sure it’s as you described unless it changed in the last 9 months
