How lucky we are to have found Dr. Alyse Baron at Coastal Kids! She has been our pediatrician since our 7 year old was born! She is brilliant, patient and calm. There is nothing more nerve-wracking than questions about your child’s well-being and both my husband and I could not feel more confident with Dr. Baron. She does all of our well-checks and sick visits but also is invaluable with advice re: sleep training, nutrition, potty-training, and even behavior! We can’t recommend her enough and feel lucky to have her taking care of our kids!
