“We’ve been at Coastal Kids now for almost four years. Dr. Liz Dyer is the perfect doctor. She knows my children individually and personally. She always takes the time to listen to and answer my questions. She’s kind, educated, and professional. I recommend her to all of my family and friends whole-heartedly. I consider her a huge blessing in my life, particularly while I was a new mom just trying to figure everything out. Few things are scarier than having a sick child and she has always been a rock of support in those moments. Dr. Dyer has come to the hospital with the births of both of my girls and made me feel so loved.”- S.G.
“We have been taking our baby to the Ladera Ranch office since she was 3 days old. This is one of the best doctors offices we’ve ever been to. It is impeccably clean and organized, (and the decor is SO fun and cute, the kids will love it!) the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and we absolutely love our baby’s doctor, Kristina Nylander. She is so sweet and gentle with our baby, listens to us and gives us advice and makes us feel confident. We have seen a few other doctors here and it was the same experience with them too.” – T.D
“Dr Abelowitz is truly an amazing doctor and thought-leader in pediatrics! I interviewed many pediatricians before deciding on Coastal Kids and no one impressed me more than Dr Abelowitz. I believe he is the smartest, most compassionate, well networked doctor in all of Orange County and he always gives you plenty of time and never makes me feel rushed. Dr Abelowitz has also referred us to many other specialties and all of his recommendations have been top notch. He truly cares about all of his patients and goes above and beyond for everyone! He has built this incredible, innovative, top of the line pediatric medical group with multiple locations throughout Orange County. In addition to this Newport Beach location, I have visited the Ladera Ranch, Laguna Hills, Irvine and Laguna Woods locations and all have been excellent to the same high standard! The best thing is that if your primary pediatrician isn’t available you can see another just as good pediatrician or PA. We really are also fond of his nurse Michelle, Dr Laura Gordon, Dr Elizabeth O’Connell and the NP Lesli Juncaj.” – D.H.
“My kiddo was a patient of Dr. Cox, and I’m also a Pediatric Nurse – was a little nervous to try out other doctors after having such a great experience with Cox. Decided to go for it – and I have been SO incredibly happy. The new office is FABULOUS- there are a few new faces, they are all FABULOUS- and the staff and doctors and NPs have been wonderful. I’m glad we didn’t leave. It’s so convenient to Ladera, and the everyone is just so amazing. They actually listen to me when I speak about my child (whom I know best). Highly recommend them all!!! Thanks Coastal Kids! It’s nice to have an office so close to home with medical staff we can trust (and have great bedside manner)” – J.D
“Coastal Kids goes out of their way to make you feel part of the family rather than just another patient. The staff and physicians take the time to genuinely remember your name and who you are while engaging in conversations that prove that they actually care. The brand new facility is modern, bright, efficient and always clean which instills confidence and makes every visit a positive experience! My wife and I wish we had “Costal Kids” when we were growing up! You have changed the “going to the doctors” experience forever and for that we are forever grateful!” – J.P
“We are so blessed to have found Coastal Kids. Since moving from LV we have been trying to find the right fit for our family. I happened to google pediatricians in Ladera and decided I would choose from the most helpful staff. After calling I think everyone, Coastal Kids was the last office and let me tell you they were amazing.
I spoke to Angela who thoroughly explained the office and even went ahead and gave me her email so I can scan my insurance card so we can see if they accepted it. Not one person in the other offices was this accommodating or friendly. Come to find out she is the operations manager but when I questioned how I got her she stated she is also the manager of Ladera and I can always reach her if I need assistance.
So I come in and all of my kids and family were greeted warmly and with enthusiasm. Clearly, they are busy but not one time did we ever feel they didn’t have time for us. They even entertained my crazy kids which is huge.
We get called back and the nurse was amazing so friendly and kind actually they all were All kind smiles. I have been in a few times now and my experience or my impression has never swayed. It’s always the same experience everyone is amazing!!
I loved the doctor we saw Dr. Landrith but in the end, the staff makes or break an office and this office rocks it!!” – A.P.
“I have been intending to get this out for almost 8 months now. So apologies for the delay, but thank you all, everyone involved, for the wonderful care you havce shown our children since our arrival. Particlarly during our child’s rough first moments out of the hospital. We appreciate all you do.”

“Lesli – We just wanted to say thank you so much for helping our son, Hayden, last week. We brought Hayden in with an elbow injury and you were so amazing with how quicly you took care of the injury, as well as how reassuring and comforting you were toward us as parents. The follow-up call was also incredibly sweet and very much appreciated. Thank you so much for all of your help.

“These are some of the BEST pediatricians in Orange County. I gave seen most of the doctors in the office and have always been pleased with the care I have received but I currently take my 8 week old daughter to see Dr. Amy Cox out of the Ladera Ranch office. We absolutely LOVE her. She is kind, has an unbelievable bedside manner, is always available when we need to be seen, is conservative when it comes to treating your child and is incredibly knowledgeable. My 2 sisters, whose kids see her, recommended her and the practice and we have never been disappointed. I would recommend Dr. Cox to anyone that is in need of a GREAT pediatrician.
The practice also offers a Lactation Consultant, Danielle Gauss, who sees patients in the office and also does house calls. Let me just say this, she changed mine and my newborn’s life. She is sooooo great at what she does. Danielle is EXTREMELY knowledgeable, ALWAYS available, even when you don’t have a scheduled appointment with her, and SUPER friendly. I would have given up on breastfeeding had it not been for her! She makes Coastal Kids that much more of an amazing practice!” – A. P
“We have been taking our son to Dr. Amy Cox for over 2 years and now also our 4 month old daughter. She always takes the time to answer all of our questions and if I ever call in to the nurse line I always get a call back within an hour or 2. The girls in the front are great as well. Their office is very clean and my son never complains about going to the doctor! Would highly recommend Coastal Kids and all their doctors.” – N.B
“Thank you so much for your love, support and professionalism, in the bris and general care of our son. We appreciate it very much.” – Z.B
“Dr. Abelowitz is awesome! Was referred to Coastal Kids by a friend of ours and glad we made the right choice by having him as our son’s pediatrician. Very thorough and very professional, not to mention knows his patients. This isn’t a place where you feel like a number, Dr. Abelowitz remembers his patients.
Reception area is done nicely with a sick waiting and a well waiting area. No problems whatsoever with billing and any questions my wife and I had were answered diligently.” – Z.I
“I have known Dr Abelowitz for 10 years now. While there occasionally might be a wait I feel like any good doctor there is often a wait because he never rushes you, answers all questions and is extremely thorough. My husband is also a Dr and deals with the same issue at times and even has had patients leave because they feel they waited too long, but I can tell you also being a Physician Assistant myself, it is many times a good issue to have because when it is your turn to see them, he will take all the time you require to feel fully satisfied all concerns are addressed and questions answered. I also like that they have both late and weekend hours as well as a full staff of board certified pediatricians there every day. He also has privileges at Hoag as well as Choc and follows all the American Academy of Pediatric Recommendations in terms of immunization schedules, etc. His staff has been helpful and responsive any time I need prescriptions or forms for school etc. I have been very pleased with both my girls care there.” – H.A
