A COMPLETE PEDIATRICIAN
by the Chanowitzes

If you don't mind a mild wait to get a doctor who will be concerned about every aspect of your child, this is the pediatrician for you. Dr. Kleiger considers the philosophies of the parents, the temperment of the child, the social aspects of the child, and the body type of a child before recommending any course of action. I take all 6 of my children to him and his notes are copious, comprehensive and reviewed before he even starts to discuss treatment. He makes sure all my questions are answered, all problems addressed and a smile is on my child's face before he finishes the appointment. I never feel like he is a money-making machine but rather an old-time caring physician concerned about the health of his patients.

Do not bring your newborn infant to this doctor. He barely handled my son. Each time Dr. Kleiger was called or visited with a concern regarding my son and his health no answers were given or an "every child is different" answer is given or "wait it out" attitude. I had to constantly remind Kleiger of my sons conditions. For months my son was constipated even though 75%-100% of his food was breast milk, and still my son was miserable and so were we. I tried everything to relieve his constipation including changing to multiple different formulas. Finally, I asked Kleiger to perform a rectal on my son and Kleiger refused saying it wouldn't help. I changed pediatricians and the first thing she did was a rectal. His constipation was relieved within 2 weeks. Also, the dTAP Kleiger uses has trace amounts of mercury, and of course, I learned of this after my son received his shots. Kleiger uses tripedia, which is less expensive than the comparable dTAP vaccine, daptacel. Daptacel doesn't have mercury. There is no excuse to still be using a vaccine with Hg. Kleiger was recommended by the La Leche League of New Paltz, and I might add, this group is headed by less than adequate guides.

Dr. Kleiger is a caring and compassionate man. Several times when my son was ill, Dr. Kleiger called late at night to check on his condition. Although it is often a long wait in the waiting room, Dr. Kleiger does not rush any patient throught he examination process. Excellent Dr.
