MPPMG's Doctor Review: I cannot thank MPPMG enough!

I am a military wife. My son was born at CHOMP three weeks before my family had to move to our next duty station in Texas. I thought having a pediatrician for the three weeks before the move was not going to be a big deal, so I left it up to chance and decided beforehand to just stick with the on-call pediatrician during the birth of our son. Thank goodness Dr. Pack was the on call doctor! I was so pleased with his demeanor, compassion and professionalism at the hospital! All of those characteristics brought me to MPPMG, and experiencing those same characteristics from every staff member I encountered is what kept me there! All of the receptionist were always so warm and inviting during each appointment. I have never in my life met a sweeter lady than Carol, the lactation consultant. Carol and Dr. Pack were absolute heroes. They were both bound and determined to give me all of the support, resources, and mostly confidence necessary to travel successfully across country with a newborn. 

As soon as we arrived at our next duty station, my newborn had a health concern, but I had yet to set up a pediatrician appointment. Dr. Pack and the wonderful staff helped me all of the way across the country because of how much they care. 

It meant so much to have that sort of support, especially as a traveling military wife and a new mom dealing with such a stressful situation. I cannot thank MPPMG enough!

MPPMG's Dr. Pack in his bicycling gear—ready for action!

“The new pediatrician, Dr. Pack, is pretty amazing—he is very thorough with his explanations and follows up with phone calls to make sure my children are doing better.  I feel his bedside manner is wonderful and my kids ask if we can "go see Dr. Pack" even when they aren’t sick!"

MPPMG's Dr. Josephson ready for rain with her matching umbrella!

“Dr. Josephson is one of the sweetest doctors I have ever met!  She has a gentle and kind approach with my children and makes them feel calm during the visit.  They no longer scream and try to escape as soon as we get to the office which makes going to the pediatrician a treat!"

MPPMG's Dr. Rosen with “Thirst Aid” at the Hospital

“Dr. Rosen is the best pediatrician in town!  He goes above and beyond to help and has called us back after researching various treatment options when we have shown up with something unusual—it makes me feel good to know his experience (30 years and counting) and his brain power combine to give my children the best care possible!  Thank you, Dr. Rosen!”

"My husband and I could not be more pleased with our decision to have our infant son cared for at the Monterey Peninsula Pediatric Group. The front desk staff and nurses are friendly and very accommodating. The group has experienced and extremely understanding lactation consultants available for moms having difficulty breast feeding their little one; they helped me keep my sanity! The doctors are knowledgeable and have created an environment where parents and children are actually excited to see the doctors and staff. My son sees Dr. Jill Airola and she is amazing with him (and me)!  I'm so thankful to have a doctor that I can trust and help guide me through the uncertainties that a newborn brings."
