Pediatrician rec's?

Hello,

This is my first time posting but since I have no friends with babies in the area I need to reach out for advice. Im somewhat new to the Atlanta area and live in midtown currently. I delivered my son oct 24th 2012 at piedmont. At the time I went with piedmont peds for his care specially dr roe. Im considering switching practices, not because I dislike them but I think id prefer a smaller practice that would be able to get to know myself and my son on a more personal level. I'd be willing to make a trip OTP for a great doctor. Thanks in advance!

  • A ton of my friends go to Piedmont Pediatrics and love them.  

    We go to Dr. Sells at Intown Pediatrics and absolutely adore her and her entire staff. I love that it is a small practice. The other huge bonus is that it is in a small neighborhood retail district, so you can literally park right in front of their front door and walk right in. No decks/elevators, no paying for parking, etc. They are in the Glenwood Park development in Grant Park and I can't say enough great things about them.

    We're with Intown Pediatrics as well, but I just heard the other day that they're not currently accepting new patients. I think you can call and ask to be placed on their wait list.

  • We go to Piedmont Peds and see dr. elliott. He knows everything about us and so does his nurse. I've seen Dr. Elliott at church and out to eat. He always comes up asks about the boys and how we're doing. I only see Dr. Elliott and unless like last week he as on vacation. In the 3 1/2 years we've been going there we have seen one of the other doctors maybe three times. Dr. Elliott has been awesome with my boys especially since all 3 of them have had some ear issues, sleep apnea, even when ds1 had swine flu at 8wks he was very calming and reassuring. I can't speak highly enough about him.

    Ditto to all of this, except we see Dr. Koenig. I haven't seen Dr. Roe, but know Dr. Elliott and Dr. Koenig very well and they are extremely personable. Even though we were referred to a specialist to do Mia's surgery, Dr. Koenig was in touch with us every step of the way and knows us very well. Maybe you can make a switch?

  • Sure thanks all for your input, i may just need to give piedmont Peds some more time. I was a bit overwhelmed by how big and busy they were, but that may be because I'm from a small town and always went to one general practice doctor. 

    Also do you all know of any good moms groups in ATL? I couldn't seem to find too many active ones on meetup.com

    Piedmont Peds is very busy especially if you go in the afternoons. I do not know anyone that uses dr roe so I'm not sure how he is. But dr Elliott and dr Koenig are awesome if you want another doctor. I have never had an issue getting an appointment with dr Elliott even the one day a couple of weeks ago when I called at 400pm.

     Not sure about groups. I meet most of my mommy friends through church

    I just called today and they are accepting new patients.

    OP, thanks for posting this, it was a big help for me as these are both in the area I'm looking for. I was torn between Piedmont and Intown, but after reviewing them and talking to the offices I'm going to go with Intown. I like the closeness of smaller practices, and I also like that they are very much pro-vaccination.
