We just relocated from Texas to NYC and we wanted to find a pediatrician that was kind, warm, and knowledgeable likethe one we had in Dallas. Dr F was exactly that! She’s so welcoming and shows genuine care! She didn’t seem like she was in a rush and took her time to make my daughter feel cared for.

Studied the previous records of the kids, asked questions, performed a very thorough exam and engaged the children directly making them feel responsible for their own health.

She was great! Patient and full of knowledge. She put a lot of our fears aside and helped up reason through other normal concerns about raising our first newborn. Dr. Ficacelli is the only pediatrician at this practice, and it's a new office as of September 2017, so it's not too busy or difficult to get an appointment.

I'd give 10 stars if possible, because Dr. Ficacelli is practical; matter of fact and simultaneously humourous; knowledgeable; understanding; and comforting. She's the best kind of doctor that you can get and for newbie parents, she's perfect. The office and staff are just as accommodating and understanding. I highly recommend this office, although, I want to keep it a secret so it doesn't become too popular.

Dr. Ficacelli is AMAZING! My son loved her, she is great with kids ( you might say well "she is a pediatrician) but unfortunately I've met some that are not very kid friendly. But, Dr. Ficacelli is thorough, knowledgeable, friendly, and shows she cares. I'm absolutely grateful to have found her for my baby. I really recommend her!
