My daughter been seen here since 2 months old. I love dr itzkevitch because she listen to parents input on care and suggests food source nutrients over synthetic. Only negative would be the front staff is little sluggish and needs a push sometimes.

My husband and I like Dr. Itzkevitch. She's very caring and is good with our baby. However, we found her office staffs unprofessional/unfriendly and thought it's very odd.There are always three to four staffs sitting at the front desk but they never pay attention to patients who walk in unless you talk to them. One girls is always playing with her phone. They need some kind of professional training.

The only complaint I have is that they don't confirm the appointments on zocdoc. Every time I come in after making an appointment thru zocdoc they say I'm not on the schedule and give me a hard time and tell me to call for appointments because they don't use zocdoc even if I have a confirmation email and text. What is the point of being on zocdoc and allowing us to make appointments if they don't acknowledge the appointments.

I brought my daughter to see the PA. I was a half an hour early for my appointment and still had to wait over an hour to be called in and over a half an hour in the room itself for the PA after the assistant weighed and measured my daughter. I've never waited like this when seeing the actual doctor.

Pros: Dr. Itzkevitch is attentive, caring and able to effectively communicate medical concerns with a young child. A great pediatrician who demonstrates what "standard of care" means. I recommend her without reservation. Cons: The clinic makes appointments but patients are seen based on severity of the situation (i.e.: a sick child will be seen before a healthy child), thus, even if you have an appointment, be prepared to wait.

We have been going over to Dr. Mziya for the past 3-4 years for both of my kids. She is affiliated with LIJ and is extremely Nice, Intelligent and Caring. It's never hard to get in touch with her. She responds quickly and is very empathetic. I would highly recommend her as Pediatrician for your Kids.

The wait time was unacceptable ( an hour and 45 minutes to be exact) The staff at the front desk was very rude ( the receptionist was talking on her cell the entire time). I asked for a transfer form, so that my previous doctor can forward my daughters record and they didn't know what that was!!! So the receptionist asked why I wanted the information from the previous doctor and I said because it was important and if I was a doctor I would want to know my patients medical history. So she fabricated one on Microsoft word and I honestly don't think she had any intentions of faxing it. The doctor was nice and superficial. Asked very little questions about my daughters history and didn't give her a complete check up. I literally has to ask all the questions (that is can you check her lungs, how is her weigh, etc). If I hadn't relocated to the neighborhood I would have stayed with my old pediatrician which was excellent. However, I won't be coming back. I will keep looking until I find what I look for in a doctor.

Great personality, very easy to talk to. The staff was comprised of teenagers who were not very professional. I walk in with my daughter and the girl at the desk did not say hello and did not look at me. Completely disregarded us, did not even look up at us. I guess her Facebook chat was more important.

Always a pleasure! Dr. Itzkevitch is the real deal. My children respond so well to her. It's like walking into family's house, she hugs them and treats them like little people and gets them to agree to things they don't want to do like get their ears checked and actually get an injection. A++++ so happy I found her here on zocdoc.
