"He is a true professional in all he does. All five of my children have been under his care since birth and he has never steered us wrong. In fact, he and nurse Toni go above and beyond to make sure our family is taken good care of. Small office, personable, no wait times. Recommend him to all!!!"
-Parent of Stephen Borchman, MD
"I have been going to Pro Kids for 3 months since my child was born. We have always received great care. The receptionists are nice, and the doctors do not make you wait too long. Also, as I have a newborn, they usually bring me out of the waiting room right away because he doesn't have all of his vaccinations yet. I really appreciate that. I strongly recommend!"
-Parent of Pro Kids Pediatrics
"Absolutely love PEDS first! From the office staff to the doctors, everyone is helpful and friendly. Appointments are easy to get whether made in advance or a call in the morning for a sick little one. I even walked in once after my daughter fell, we did not have an appointment and we were taken right back to an exam room. The after-hours service is great. Within seconds one of the doctors is on the phone to help. I love that they are not quick to prescribe a script unless it is truly needed. Very supportive of decisions as a parent also. Highly recommend!!! "
-Parent of Peds First Pediatrics

I trust them with my children, there is no bigger statement of confidence than that."

They’re now open on Sundays which is good too. We will miss them when my kids grow up."

"As a Registered nurse and a mom of a son with multiple health issues, I am extremely picky when it comes to my children's medical care. That being said, I am very pleased with the Children's Medical Group, and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a pediatrician. The doctors and the staff there are caring, compassionate and more than competent and that's exactly what you want in a medical team, especially when it comes to your children."

"All I have to say the experiences over the last 12 years with Chester Pediatrics has been awesome! They are always there to answer any of your questions. My youngest daughter is 10 years old and was born with heart issues. From the very beginning they were on top of everything and very supportive. Even today they know my daughter's medical history without even looking in her chart, and her sister's too. I live in Stamford CT now, but will not change because I know my kids have the best doctors there."
-Parent of Chester Pediatrics

Dr. Macaluso is an expert in the field of breastfeeding medicine, also she is a pediatrician, so she was able to be really helpful in dealing with my little preemie. I am very thankful to say that we still have been able to stay on this journey almost 4 months in!!"
