Ugh whenever anyone goes on and on about how they LOVE their kids pediatrician it makes me wonder if I should be switching. I feel “eh” about my kids doctor. She’s ok… thank G-d my kids are pretty healthy so her expertise hasn’t been put to the test. I always feel so rushed though during appointments. Like I have to say everything super quick and get all of my questions in as fast as I can while she is in the middle of doing the exam otherwise before I know it the appointment is over and she is out the door. She’s nice I just feel so extremely rushed! I know it has to do with time and making money but is every doctor/practice like this?



Do you tell her you have questions? I tell them I have a bunch of questions after they are done checking my kid. They then sit in the chair and listen to my questions and answer them. Maybe they don't know you have questions or concerns. You need to let them know. In all my years (my oldest is 19) in multiple practices in multiple states, I only once had a doctor who made me feel rushed (and it was a doctor covering my regular doctor who was out)

Since you are willing to use a female doctor, I think you will have a much easier time, OP. I was looking for a male pediatrician for a while and it's really hard to find a good one with experience that is taking new patients. I really miss the old school model of pediatricians- I think they used to use their own brain more, where as most of the newer doctors are just spitting back verbatim what they're told from AAP.
Ugh, not for me. Especially in these days of covid obsession.

I would not use her unless you want to wait over an hour every visit

I highly recommend main street pediatrics. They're all great. Dr. Poliakoff is frum but every doctor there is excellent. No wait times, very responsive, they'll fit you in and call you back


I second main street pediatrics! It's in foundry row in owings mills (though I believe they have a towson location as well) I've never had a long wait and have been able to see my dr for sick visits on short notice.
We use Dr. Sella because she was the only Dr taking new patients when my daughter is born but she is moving in July 2022 and I have requested to switch to Dr Polliakoff after. Ive spoken to him before and was impressed by his knowledge and patience.

We are very happy with Dr. Poliakoff as well.

Oh man. We just switched to Main Street for my boys and were going to switch to Dr. Sella for my girls. :-(
Where is she moving?

Oh man! I forgot where shes moving, I think she's moving back to the state where she moved from originally. If you're looking for a female for your girls I recommend Dr Orzech. I'm sure the others are great but I've never been seen them so cant speak of them personally.
You can still Dr sella until she moves and after that theyre having a dr to replace her, her name is Dr Mancilla and she will be there temporarily until July 2023 when a different dr who used to be in the practice is returning (I forgot her name, she moved out and is moving back to baltimore next summer)
