We started going here a year and a half ago after moving from California. My kids have been sick this past year and we've never had a problem getting in on the same day, usually at a time that works for me and my part-time work schedule. Because we're often asking for a same day sick child appointment, we've been exposed to at least 5 of the doctors on staff and for the most part they have all been wonderful. Drs Palant, Worhnam, and Gine-Nokes are the best. They took the time to listen to me, thoroughly examine the children, and discuss treatment options. They've even called afterward to follow up and see how we're getting on

I have also had a good experience with the nurses, particularly nurse practitioner Berman.

As other reviews noted, there is often a long wait time, which can be nerve wracking when you have to pick up another child at school or get back to work, so I try to pad my schedule and allow extra time at the start to hunt for parking and at the end in case we run late.

I have not had a problem with receptionist staff. I did have one issue where I called to confirm an appointment I thought was for the next day and was told "it's today, in 45 minutes" whereby I rushed out the door with my baby still in his PJs. When we got to the office, we learned the appointment was indeed for the next day, but they squeezed us in anyway (but I had to wait about 35 mins).

Overall I have had a very positive experience. Oh, and I like that they are affiliated with Children's Hospital, so you can go to Lexington or Waltham hospitals if you need blood work or to see a specialist.

Pros: Caring, professional doctors, always available

Cons: Parking can be hard, office often running late

My children have been patients of Lex Ped for 18 years--both with major, multiple problems. I have always been made to feel that they are a part of my family (especially Dr. Wornham) and that they care for the parents as well as the kids. They refer only to the top specialists. My children have always been seen the day I've called something I cannot say for my doctor. Are they perfect? No, but who is! Yes, this is a busy practice and the service may seem rough at times, but we've never been rushed in the examining room and all our questions have been answered. In addition, this practice cares about the Lexington community making themselves available at the schools when needed. Nuff said. I wouldn't have trusted by children to anyone else.

Pros: Caring Doctors, Professional

Cons: Busy, but you want them to be!

Moved here about a year ago from out west with a 3 and 5 yr old and went to Lex Ped as it was easy and seemed like that is where people in Lexington took their kids. I should have read the reviews first. Terrible receptionists/staff, Docs that don't talk to your kids when they see them, that is if you don't get a nurse pract. as the docs are so "busy". I think the give away is that there are no toys or anything for kids to entertain themselves in the waiting room. We went to a different practice after 1 year.

I really want to bring them into court! Our time and efforts are nothing to them. They drove us crazy! I have never encountered such bad healthcare providers!

Last time, the doctor had requested a wrong vaccine for my baby. Luckily, we, as parents, corrected this 'mistake' by making a confirmation with the nurse.

This time, we wasted three hours for nothing. If they told us the situation beforeahead, we would not waste so much time there for nothing. If my baby got sick because of waiting outside for about three hours in the cold weather, I would definitely ask them to pay the price!

I have been going here for 6 years. Most doctors are really good and err on the side of caution. Can't stand the receptionists. Agree with other review, that they are rude on the phone and talk about other patients while sitting in the waiting room. The gossip about families and its very unprofessional. I can here most things they are saying about patient's parents. Very unprofessional. In the last couple of years the wait time has become very long. Typically wait even with a scheduled appt. 30-45min to see doctors. There is not much of a wait if you see a nurse.
I still go because I think the doctors are really good.

I was new to this practice and wasn't sure what to expect. The doctors have been very caring and thorough ( I have 3 children) but the admin staff is awful, really miserable. They act like they are doing you a favor when you call in. In fact, several times as I have been sitting in the waiting room, you can hear them talking about the how they were so annoyed with the phone call they just received- very unprofessional. Quotes like "can you believe this mother?"....and then talking out loud about the patient. I am surprised that Dr. Palant ( the doctor that started the practice)-allows this. The practice needs some new energy in the admin staff for sure.

I have to agree with the other reviews, I wish I had read them before going to this practice. I am a working mom, and my schedule is very busy. Multiple times my appointments were rescheduled last minute- any working mom will tell you taking time off from work is hard to do, especially on short notice! I was very disappointed in the service that I received, there are so many other pediatric practices in the area that are very good. No need go through the hassles of this place!

Terrrible pediatrics office: The doctors are just OK (not great, when they don't forget your child's name, even after you remind them, repeatedly), but worse still are the support staff of nurses and nurse practicioners and receptionists. The nurses are surly and don't even look at your child. And if you are unlucky enough to get one of the unprofessional receptionists on the phone, (after wading through the office mail system for 5 minutes), you get someone who barely knows her job. Avoid this place; it is a little bit of trash right in the heart of Lexington.
