So, I couldn't get a good read on my temperature about two
hours ago, because we have crappy thermometers, so I went up to Rite
Aid and bought one of those 50 dollar forehead digital things. When I
checked my son??s temp when we got back in the car it said 105 and then 103!
That's the highest I have ever seen him have, and Briarcliff Pediatrics who we were
considering switching too, and who we had been to once before(we were also treated poorly that time)
was between the store and my house, so I
figured 103 was high enough for an unscheduled visit. We go in and
the Dr., before looking at my son or anything, starts to berate me
about not having an appointment, not switching completely over to them
from our other Dr., how crappy the $50 dollar thermometer I just
bought is, and how he sees 105 temps all day long and 103 isn't an
emergency. Needless to say I got a little pissed and told him to
basically shut up and get on with the exam, my kid is sick. So after
all that crap, he listens to his chest, gets all concerned, and
proceeds to tell me that my kid basically has viral pneumonia and
needs an inhaler, and that if he gets any worse, he needs to go the
emergency room! I'm like yeah dick I told you he was sick. Then he
tells me to go make an appointment with the receptionist for tomorrow
so he can be rechecked. I go to the counter and say "I need an
appointment, the Dr. told me to make one for tomorrow." she looked at
me like I was crazy and said "For what?" I said " the Dr. said he
wants to see him tomorrow" She again said "for what" like she had no
idea what the hell I was talking about. I swear to god I almost
slapped someone. After tomorrow I am never going there again. There
is something wrong with those people.

We saw the nice people at Briarcliff Pediatrics once, and only once. Why? Because they immediately fired us for daring to have an opinion about our child's care. Specifically, we chose to do an alternative vaccination schedule with our daughter that would eventually get her completely vaccinated, but give fewer shots over more visits. We had researched this schedule, and our old doctor approved it completely (we moved out of state, however, and obviously couldn't continue to see this doctor). At Briarcliff Pediatrics, we were never even given the chance to explain why we made these choices, an attempt to create a catch-up schedule, or, heck, asked whether our daughter has had a bad reaction to vaccinations in the past. Moreover, we were told that having a child with an alternative schedule puts other kids in the practice at risk (yeah, like the risk of polio just shot up because our daughter will get vaxed for it at 18 months instead of 12).

To be fair, all the support staff were very nice.

Dr. Deeb fired my child from his clinic in the hallway because I chose to space out his vaccines. The nurse told me to hurry it up with applying an ice pack to my child's thigh prior to my son receiving a vaccine because she had other patients waiting. I will definitely avoid this clinic.

Going here felt like a jump on and off a freight train, in the 3 years I went there the doctor spent no more than 5 mins a visit, any concern I had was pushed aside as overprotective mother, I went somewhere else and found my child had a condition that had been consistently dismissed at Briarcliff. I should have followed my instincts earlier and gone elsewhere.

Dr Deeb is the most knowledgeable pediatrician I??ve come across. His knowledge and manner gives parents (especially new parents) all the confidence they need to rest easy during an illness. Jeff

We have taken our children to Dr. Deeb and Dr. Rich for the last 4 years and we love them. They are kind and caring and truly love seeing our kids. We never have to wait more than 5 minutes to see a doctor and they always have same day appointments whenever the kids get sick. I trust them and they always answer my questions with genuine concern. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great pediatric office.

We have been going to Briarcliff Pediatrics since my son was born and love the person attention Dr. Deeb and Dr. Rich provide. They are both great with children and take the time to answer all of your questions.
The new office is very bright and cheery.

My son goes to Dr. Rich at Briarcliff Pediatrics, and she's great! She's always very friendly and takes plenty of time to answer our questions. The nurses and the staff are very friendly, and we've never had to wait long to see the doctor.

My little brother had to go here to get his teeth cleaned and they did a great job. They cleaned his teeth and they also gave him some free stuff for his teeth that would normally cost a lot of money.

Dr. Raymond Deeb shows genuine concern for each of his patients. With more than 12 years experience as an ER specialist at Atlanta's Children's Healthcare, there are few situations or illnesses with which he has not dealt.

He is patient with both children and their parents and provides ample time during office visits to answer questions. He is a new mother's dream because he takes the time to soothe worries and never condescends or makes light of a parent's concerns.

His office staff are friendly, attentive, and always helpful. Nurses return calls either during the lunch hour or at the end of the day. Dr. Deeb will also return calls at the end of the day if you have specific concerns which a nurse cannot handle.

I wouldn't trust my son's care to anyone else at this point.

PROS: Caring, smart, does not push antibiotics
CONS: High nurse turnover
