I've read the other reviews, causing me to chime in... I've been going here for 2 years. Papageorge is our doctor, but we've seen all of them, and we've spoken to all of them after hours. Thus, I feel qualified to comment on this practice

I used to take my daughter (she started going there at 2) and had Dr. Wong as primary care physician. Yes, she is young and nice but is incompetent as Dr. She failed to diagnose ear infection and in our 2nd visit, she was busy and got Dr. Papageorge who diagnosed her correctly and gave us the prescription. Do not expect to have many prescriptions written by Dr. Wang, she never did in more than a year. If you have to go there, ask for Dr. Papageorge, she is professional and seemed to be well experienced. As for Dr. Keith, she was our first Dr. but my daughter was scared of her and she questioned us for coming to SOHO pediatrics although we don't live in the area. We work just few blocks from them and it was a convenient location for us but she did not seem to agree. Maybe she just want to see hip/ rich parents who can afford to live in the neighborhood.
Dr. Saken, he is not friendly to smaller children at all, we saw him once for emergency visit but never again, we wanted to book his appointment.
It could be just us but this is really what we felt so we decided to choose another provider after a year.

We would never sign up for health insurance that didn't allow us to take our kids to SoHo Pediatrics! Our 12 &10 year olds haven't had a single off-note. Our boy's gone to Marie Keith and our girl to Robert Saken their whole lives, and Dr. Wang has come through for us with "spot on" counsel several stressful times. More than once, we've had to call on them from remote places and been helped by their responses.

From the first scare with our 2 day old, to careful advice to a 12-year old, we've seen why were were lucky to learn about SoHo Pediatrics at the start. And I have found the receptionists helpful in lots of ways.

Of course the experience of the other family with a lead test sounds distressing. The "elevated" lead test with one of our children happily led to a lower retest result, which must have been at Saken's suggestion. In that and in other ways, our experience has been very, very different.

Pros: Responsive, knowledgeable, good relationship with kids

Cons: So popular, check-ups for busy kids hard to schedule

Dr. Keith is amazing-- smart, warm, respectful of kids and parents. We love her. The receptionist is awful-- nasty, dismissive, not helpful, but that's what you have to put up with to have your child taken care of by Dr. Keith. Dr. Wang seems OK, but Dr. Saken is cold and condescending and makes parents and kids alike feel worse just from his presence. Overall, Dr. Keith is worth the trouble, but if she retires, the whole practice will disappear.

Soho Pediatrics is a great, solid practice. I especially like Dr Saken. He has seen both my kids since they were infants. When I interviewed pediatricians before having my first child, this was the only practice that gave one-on-one interviews, which I think really represents how they are once your children are patients. I've had nothing but great experiences with the practice in the last 4 years. The waiting room is sometimes a little crowded and you do sometimes have to wait 15 minutes to be seen, but I consider this a positive in that it reflects the doctors' willingness to squeeze you in when your children have emergencies. Dr Keith is also wonderful and has come in to the office on a holiday to see my kids when they were ill.

My family visited Soho Pediatrics twice in 2006 and 2007 when our regular pediatrician was out of town. Dr. Wang and Dr. Saken at SoHo Pediatrics turned out to be the single worst doctors that I have encountered in 40 years, and I hope you won't take your child to them.

Per routine on our first visit, a sample was taken to determine if my infant child had been exposed to lead, and to my horror a week later, Soho Pediatrics called to tell me that he had been. Specifically, Dr. Wang informed me that our son's lead level was at a level that dozens of extremely rigorous studies at top medical institutions have shown to be associated with significant cognitive impairment. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that when children obtain a lead result like ours that their physician immediately retest to verify the results. However, Dr. Wang did not tell me this when she called with my child's lab results, and when I called her back a to request the retest, Dr. Wang stubbornly refused to provide it!

Finally, I insisted that the re-test be performed, and on the day of the re-test, Dr. Wang's partner Dr. Saken who met with us (1) refused to peform the regular check-up that I had requested be peformed that day--telling me instead that I should come back the next week; (2) refused to complete my son's yellow vaccine record indicating that he gave our child a vaccine that day--he told me to do so myself, but I don't even know exactly which vaccine was given; and (3) refused to let me hold my child while he peformed the venous draw.

Drs. Wang and Saken doctor care far more about building their client base, maximizing "capitations" by making families come in for multiple appointments, currying favor with insurance companies, and making money for themselves than they care about your child or mine. There are many better pediatricians out there. Please find one.

Cons: Incompetent; don't follow pediatric "standards of care"; arrogant and rude
