Our pedi retired, so I switched to Dr. Kibler at the Duval office based on a recommendation. My first impression in the parking lot was that it was a very nice building, but as soon as I walked into their office, I was less than impressed.

We've been at CPG for 15 years and love all the doctors and nurses. With 3 boys, we've kept them busy. My 16-yr old still sees Dr. Hughes. I'll be sad when he has to "graduate" from his pediatrician.

Since our son was born we had a short stint in the NICU, several well checks, same day appts for pink eye, weekend calls and visits for an ear infection and a call to the nurse for another round of pink eye. Every time we have been happy with the level of compassion, communication and professionalism we've been met with. \n\nOur primary is Dr. Treybig who we absolutely love. She is great with our son, treats us like competent parents and always takes time to answer our questions. We have also seen Dr. Frank several times and have found him to be extremely efficient (which is great for a last minute sick call) and Dr. Ma who was super friendly and great with our son when we had to come in on a Sunday. \n\nWhen I was pregnant we discussed the option of a smaller practice or family practitioner, but with a very young child I'm glad to have the peace of mind knowing I can call at anytime of any day and reach someone. CPG is a great place!

We have a 6 month old son and have been extremely pleased with the care provided by Capital Pediatrics. As he was a Christmas day baby, I was a bit concerned about when a pediatrician would make it to the hospital but was pleasantly surprised by how quickly Dr. Frank was available. Our little guy has also been prone to pink eye and ear infections and the after hours care provided has been amazing, both effective and easy. Our primary, Dr. Treybig is wonderful and does a great job of balancing efficiency while making sure that we, as first time parents, have all of our questions answered. Plus, its a great location! \n

I have to add this to my review: I have read some of these other reviews- and as for the negatives- I have neve,r in the three years I have been there, experianced any of these problems. The staff goes above and beyond for patients. When prescribed medicine, all of the doctors go out of their way to either give me samples, or amazing coupons to make the medicine much more afforadable. Both of my sons have the milk protien allergy. With only a few off handed statements on my part- Dr. Mani was able to diagnose it in my first newborn before we left the hostpital and Dr. Ma was able to diagnose it at my 3 week appoitment in minutes with my second son. On top of that, the nurses have gone so above and beyond to supply me with Nutramigen samples (normally $25 a can) that my son is 10 months old and I have yet to need to pay for a can. The staff is always so sweet and incredibly helpful- both the check in and check out desk is always wonderful. With two kids, I see them a lot and I have never been greeted with anything but smiles. The lactation consultant, Linda, is one of the best in town and you don't have to pay to use her. She just comes with the practice. Her sessions would cost you $100 an hour at any other place in town. She worked amazingly with us for months! She even came over to say hi and check up on my son when she would see us walking the hall.\nI can understand that some people may have personality conflicts with doctors-not everyone is going to be warm and fuzzy. Still it's no reason to question any of these doctors love for their jobs or our kids. If a personality conflict does bug you, it's easy to just switch to any of the multiple docs there instead. It's a great practice with a staff and doctors that care.

Our three month old daughter typically sees Dr. Brown from Capitol Pediatrics, but she was running a fever on a Tuesday afternoon and Dr. Brown wasn't in the office, so we were seen by Dr. Treybig. We go into the office quickly, and Dr. Treybig examined our daughter, started a urine culture and a blood culture right away. The blood test showed an abnormally high white blood cell count, so Dr. Treybig sent us to Dell Children's and even called ahead so we would have a shorter wait in the ER. She then continued to communicate with the ER doctor and pass on instructions to us as well as to Dr. Brown, our regular pediatrician, until the issue was resolved. We are also very happy with our well child visits to Dr. Brown. I feel like we are in very good hands with Capital Pediatric Group.

I was recommended to Capital Pediatrics by a friend before my first child 7 years ago. I love that I can call and get into one of the doctors within an hour and they are all great. The nurses are fantastic and are extremely helpful whenever I call. I have recommended them to several of my friends and they all enjoy going as well. I highly recommend checking them out.

If you haven't noticed, Capital Pediatric Group is advertising URGENT CARE and walk-ins. My child is not an established patient at this office, but what do you think of when you hear urgent care? you would expect that if it is urgent care they would have most of the things and ER would have. That is not the case at this office. My child fell of his bike had a cut that required stitches and a fracture as well. I decided to take my child to this office since it is near by and thought it wouldn't be as crazy as waiting in an ER office. When i got there, i was told that 1. they do not have an x-ray machine. 2. they do not do stitches. 3. i would be charged an urgent care fee. on top of that, i was sent out to do x-rays and stitches at an ER. i was stuck with an urgent care fee on top of an ER fee. how inconvenient is that. DO NOT ADVERTISE AS URGENT CARE IF INDEED IT IS NOT URGENT CARE!

I was a first time mom and as all of you mom's know finding a pediatrician is VERY daunting! After talking with a couple of different pediatricians, I decided on Dr. Mani. After our first visit, I was very happy with my decision! And now, 2 years later, I am still very happy. Dr. Mani is very experienced and considerate. She took the time to explain the basics to me and answered all of my questions (even if I was scared to ask them). About a year later, when my son got sick she was very helpful in explaining the treatment and what his illness was. \n\nThe office staff at capital pediatrics is also very friendly. I was worried about this as my son is very scared of new places, but my son feels comfortable. And we both love the feel of the office. \n\nOverall GREAT EXPERIENCES with Dr. Mani! \nI know its hard to choose but I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Mani!

CP is a total cattle call. Your children will either be misdiagnosed by a completely incapable doctor or you will be talked down to by a smug jerk. For the good of my kids, I've put up with the smugness of the capable doctors but will gladly leave for a practice that can show they love what they do.\nI will say that there is one nurse who is amazing. My kids love her and she is the only reason we have stayed with CP.

As a first time mom, I wanted the best doctor in town and thought who better than the author of Baby911. My husband and I were both extremely disappointed with Dr. Brown. From the beginning we felt as if she rushed through our appointments and questions. And often times, she acted as if our questions were ridiculous, as if we should know better (and we have read every book on babies there are). I expressed an interest in a delayed vaccine schedule and she would hear none of it. \r\n\r\nWhen my daughter turned a year, Dr. Brown diagnosed her as ""delayed"" because she was not yet walking or talking. I went through the steps to get an appointment with Easter Seals, then decided to get a second opinion. Our new pediatrician calmed our fears, saying that our daughter was perfectly healthy and on track. And of course, 2 months later she was walking and saying words.\r\n\r\nOverall, I disliked Dr. Brown's bedside manner. I felt that she was often rushed and cold and talked down to me and my husband. I didn't realize how much it bothered me until we switched pediatricians and found someone much warmer, friendlier and more attentive. Going to well-checks is a much more relaxed and pleasant experience than it EVER was at Capital Pediatrics.

As the mother of an autistic child it was great to find a doctor who is so good with children with special needs. She was very patient and kind and made my son feel very comfortable. Doctor Brown also took the time to answer my questions and did not make me feel rushed. It was nice to find a pediatrician who really understood autism.

Before this week I would say this group was ok...tons of dr.s, tons of kids, but we always were able to see someone the same day I called when my children were sick. This week we called our Dr. for help. My husband and I were distraught and had questions - this was a REAL EMERGENCY but our Dr. had her assistant call us and told us she was busy. I would recommend this place for a simple cold/ virus - but don't go if you need help, questions, or have a serious emergency.

Please do not take your child to this office or you will most likely be very disappointed as well. The doctor we have seen twice is Dr. Mani. On my son?s first visit I went in to talk about taking the steps to get him diagnosed for ADD or ADHD, plus he had a regular yearly check up. The doctor recommended that I fill out some forms and have my son?s teachers do the same. These forms were supposed to be sent in to the doctor?s office to determine if he needed any testing done. \r\n\r\nFirst off I had filled out the papers then faxed them in (as requested by staff) and none of the staff called me to set up an appointment or anything. I had to call back a couple times to even get a response as to if I could make an appointment or not. I finally made the appointment but now I am wondering what it was all for. She asked me a few questions as she looked on the formns that I had filled out and wrote a bunch of useless notes. The doctor was supposed to call me back with some type of recommendation/referral so that I could take my son to see a neuro professional to see if he was ADHD. It never happened. I am still waiting and it has been about 4 weeks and there has been no call from Dr. Mani.\r\n\r\nThe other thing that really got to me was the fact that the doctor and the rest of the staff are very uncaring. They all act like they would rather not be there or that they hate their jobs. The whole office is really just unfriendly.\r\n\r\nIt?s frustrating relocating from a different state where I had great doctors for the kids then having to find a good doctor and having to deal with an office like Capital Pediatric. At this point I just really don?t know who to go to for good health care for my children. If you know of a great pediatrician please let it be known because I would hate to think that there are no good doctors here in Austin.

I have a son that has been very low on his weight for the past months, I decided to take him to a new doctor because our old provider only accepted Medicaid and we did not have that any longer. I decided on Dr Mani, reading her Bio it said she was somewhat knew of eating disorders, Long story short I told her my concerns with my 4yr old son, she said ""a child his age should be getting around 1600 calories daily, so since he only wants cereal just give him cerial 6 times a day "" My husband is a witness to this, disgusting pitiful information and help. Not to mention that the so called physical she gave him consisted in taking my sons shirt off, and scratching him while doing that, then listening to his heart than saying he was okay once again all inf from of my husband, we did contradict her a few times but there was not going anywhere with this woman. I am so crushed because my son needs help and I just have no idea on any well recommended doctors. Any help anyone?\r\nWhen I finally had enough I asked for the medical records of my 3 sons and they refused saying the Medical Records I had paid for to my previous doctor, belonged to them. & had to pay 25 each! I argued enough that they finally said okay, when I got there they had mailed them out, when I personally spoke with supervisor and was going to personallly pick then up. so they took 10 to copy them real quick. The copies given to me were so terrible and not in the order they were supposed to be.

Dr. Hughes is an ok doctor. He doesn't go overboard on friendly, but gets the job done efficiently, and without rushing you. The staff on the other hand is horrible! I go to the Duval office, and whoever answers the phone is not usually very pleasant. The nurses are by far the worst part of the entire experience. They always seem annoyed, they never try to ease my sons fears (he's 2 1/2), and when they give shots they are so unfeeling about it it's ridiculous. It is because of them that I have decided to switch pediatricians.

We were not pleased with Dr. Brown at all. Our infant broke out into a horrible rash that quickly spread all over our infant's body. We brought our child in to see Dr. Brown. She looked at the rash for a few seconds and said it was baby acne. I had read about baby acne prior to the appointment and was not convinced this was what our child had. I took our baby to a pediatric dermotologist and allergist. Both of them said that our baby was having a bad reaction to the formula they were on. Dr. Brown told usat a previous appointment that our baby had a milk protein allergy and recommended that we switch from breast milk to a formula made for infants with this type of allergy. We had asked if we could try soy formula but she stated that if infants have a milk protein allergy they typically will also be allergic to soy. The pediatric dermotologist and allergist both said that the formula that Dr. Brown had us giving our child still had milk proteins in it but they were very broken down. Our child was reacting to it and the rash was the outcome. Our new pediatrician recommended that we switch to soy. Since having done so, our baby has been doing wonderfully for months since the switch and days after switching to soy the rash was gone. We do not feel that Dr. Brown took the time to really analyze the rash. The appointment was very rushed and all appointments that we had with her, Dr. Brown made us feel as though our questions were stupid. She was not a sympathetic Dr. and we always felt as though we were wasting her time with her demeanor.

She does not make me feel like I am rushed thru our appt. when we do get in (at times the wait is a little long) It has been a little bit harder to get into her when I call for a sick appt. (because of her book) and her being more popular with new mom and dad's , but none the less we will see another Dr in the practice (all though we like her the best)

Pros: very attentive and great listener

Cons: not always avail.for appt. (booked) waiting time

Her office was not very nice or kid friendly. The staff was very grumpy and did not seem to want to be there. It all made sense once I met the doctor. She didn't listen to my complaints seriously and literally laughed in my face. You wouldn't expect this from her considering her accomplishments.

Dr. Brown was our baby's pediatrician until I recently switched to another pediatrician because Dr. Brown did not diagnose our baby correctly on anything. I literally had to self diagnose each thing that was wrong with our baby from thrush to acid reflux. Each time I brought my baby to see Dr. Brown, I would say what I thought was wrong and Dr. Brown waouldsay that our baby did not have what I thought was wrong. And yet, as the symptoms got worse I would return to the office and see another Dr. (because Dr. Brown was either on vacation or working at the other location) and the Dr. that I did see indeed said that our baby had what I thought she had. After speaking with a friend of mine of my frustrations with Dr. Brown, my friend said she too orginally brought their child to see her and also switched because Dr. Brown did not correctly diagnose in their case either. As a matter of fact, their child had such a bad case of reflux that it required surgery. I think Dr. Brown is more concerned about promoting her book that she co-authored or doing interviews with Rachel Ray than she is with her own patients. I have learned through this that you really have to be an advocate for your children and am glad that I have since changed pediatricians. I will say one positive note about this office and that is that they have weekend hours.

Pros: Weekend office hours
