I love them they are the best. Both doctors are highly qualified and experienced and the staff.I love this place fast and on time always accurate on diagnosed symptoms. Thanks.
I've been with Drs. Lieberman and Straus since 05-2005 when my son was born. From the moment they visited him in the maternity ward through their recent application of 11 y/o inoculations Beachside Pediatrics - the doctors & staff - has been nothing shy of wonderful.
