NYC’s Top Pediatricians & Pediatric Specialists


An Annual Guide To Help You Find The Best Doctors For Your Kids

By Jill Feigelman


For obvious reasons, parents want to find a pediatrician with whom they have a great relationship. You want to always feel comfortable talking to your doctor, whether you’re calling about a sudden fever or just a regular check-up. To help in your search for finding one who is right for you, we’ve once again teamed up with consumer health research firm Castle Connolly to come up with our sixth annual guide to the top pediatricians and pediatric specialists in Manhattan.
And to give you a better sense of what drives them, we’ve asked nine of these 162 doctors to share more about their lives and passions. We hope that these stories will both serve as a practical resource for your growing family and encourage an appreciation for the medical heroes who all agree that the best part about their jobs are the children—our children.

Interviews have been edited for clarity.

The Ache Breaker
Dr. Sarla Inamdar
Metropolitan Hospital Center, Chief Of Pediatrics
Pediatric Rheumatologist

Dr. Inamdar is constantly challenged in her work as a pediatric rheumatologist to find the underlying source behind the aches and pains in children’s joints. She initially went into this field because she was surprised by the lack of rheumatologists available to children with illnesses like chronic arthritis, lupus, and other musculoskeletal disorders. Spending most of her career in East Harlem, she focuses on providing the best patient-centered comprehensive care to children with these types of disorders.

What do you consider to be the highlight of your career?
Caring for children with chronic illnesses is what makes our work so satisfying and rewarding. It’s such a joy to see these children leading active lives and growing into mature, goal-oriented young adults. I’ve been fortunate to see patients of mine who go on to graduate high school, attend college, and pursue careers in education, nursing, journalism, and other fields.

What about the challenges of your work?
There are, of course, challenges to face when patients’ illnesses are progressive. But newer treatments, as well as the resilience and determination of children to get better, are reasons to offer the best care to children and their families.

What do you love most about your job and what inspires you?
Aches and pains especially in bones and joints don’t always indicate rheumatologic disorders, so I’m clinically and academically challenged to find an answer for a child’s problem. The problem-solving aspect of our profession is what makes our work so interesting and inspires us to keep in touch with the advances in this field.

The Super Sleuth
Dr. Thomas J.A. Lehman
Hospital For Special Surgery, Chief Of Pediatric Rheumatology
(Also NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center) 
Pediatric Rheumatology

Dr. Lehman is a bit of a detective. He takes pride in discovering something another doctor might have overlooked in order to find the cause behind a child’s ailment. Early in his career, patients would come to him when they had no one else to turn to. Now, he takes pride in seeing former patients grow into successful young adults.

What do you do and why do you love your field?
Early on in my training, I learned that pediatric rheumatologists take care of children with complex chronic problems that don’t belong to any other specialty—dealing with every organ system from the brain to the toes. And so, in my generation, we were trained to be both the “consult of last resort” and the specialists in “obscurology.” I find great joy in doing a careful and thorough examination and in recognizing a disease that others have not. Unlike many diseases that can be “proven” by a diagnostic test, proper diagnosis and care in pediatric rheumatology is dependent on experience and pattern recognition; you can’t simply read the book. Of course, there’s also great joy in taking care of children over a long period of time and watching them grow into successful young adults.

What do you consider to be the highlight of your career?
I’m inspired by the continued and steady progress in the care of children with rheumatic diseases. When I first started practicing in the 1970s, we made children’s lives better, but there was no sense that we could cure anyone—we spent much time in the rehabilitation center filled with patients in wheelchairs. Now, while we still can’t really use the word “cure” yet, we can bring the disease entirely under control for many of the children who were disabled in the past. The greatest joy in my work is that you could meet most of my patients today and not even realize from their appearance or lifestyle that they had a chronic illness. In fact, patients report that the medicine, which has finally become available after much testing, can make them feel like they don’t even have the disease anymore.

The Big Thinker
Dr. Nai-Kong V. Cheung
Memorial Sloan-Kettering
Cancer Center, Neuroblastoma Program Director
Pediatric Hematology-Oncology

Dr. Cheung is working towards finding a cure for cancer. As the director of the Neuroblastoma Program, which deals with nervous system cancer in children usually under the age of five, he divides his time between the lab and his patients equally. With a particular interest in making better and gentler medicines and harnessing the power of the natural immune system, he’s a big thinker who’s excited to see where the future takes us in the fight against cancer.

Tell us all about your work in pediatric cancer.
Most folks are unaware that cancer can strike any child at any time, with no rhyme or reason. Nor do they know that pediatric cancer is called an “orphan disease”—pharmaceutical companies have no economic incentives in making new and better drugs for small markets like childhood cancer. So, instead of waiting for miracles, we, as translational scientists, have the responsibility to use our insights to make the next generation of effective medicine. While managing patients afflicted with one of the most deadly cancers in childhood called neuroblastoma, I spent long hours in the laboratory to design new drugs to rejuvenate the immune system—from the test tube to the patient, a process we continue to streamline and accelerate, knowing very well that cancers don’t wait.

Treating cancer in children is not the same as in a small adult. Pediatric oncologists need to be sure that the cancer will not come back for decades, not just months or years, and that the treatment does not cause damage to vital organs later in life. The new drugs that we work on are now making a real difference in survival. As many of my patients graduate from high schools and colleges, some finishing professional schools, I feel a joy that is deep and hard to describe.

Is there one anecdote from your professional career that particularly inspires you?
Sarah* was one of our troopers. She was diagnosed with metastatic neuroblastoma at a very young age, and when her cancer came back and spread to the brain, she was only four years old. Her family and everyone at the hospital were devastated. We were all in despair, especially since this wasn’t supposed to happen—such cases aren’t in the textbooks. I’d had some background from a similar case, where the patient sadly did not make it, and I was able to help Sarah sail through in the end. She’s now remained in remission for seven years, and the successful treatment she received has since helped many other children with brain metastases. This is their legacy.

The Critical Caregiver
Dr. Edward E. Conway, Jr.
Beth Israel Medical Center, Chair, Department of Pediatrics
(Also St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center, Interim Chair, Department Of Pediatrics)
Pediatric Critical Care Medicine

Dr. Conway spends his time where no new parent wants to be: intensive care. As the director of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine, he is in charge of taking care of the sickest infants and children—which, as difficult as that might be, is actually also what he finds the most rewarding about his job. In his practice, he oversees life-threatening illnesses and injuries, including everything from severe asthma and diabetic ketoacidosis to overwhelming infection (i.e. pneumonia) and serious accidents (caused by things like cars, bicycles, scooters, skateboards, and rollerblades).

What inspired you to work in critical care? What do you love most about it?
I was always interested in a career in medicine, particularly in pediatrics, because I’ve been amazed at the resiliency of the sickest of children. It’s also humbling to see how parents, grandparents, siblings, and the staff who tirelessly care for these children are affected. I was exposed to dying children very early in my career, and one quickly becomes close with the patient and their family. I have sat vigil through the night more times than I can remember, having discussions about organ donation and withdrawal of support, and I’ve also been at the bedside as my patient passed away and have attended many wakes and funerals. I’m always amazed how the majority of families are grateful for what we attempted, even though we might feel that we have failed as physicians.

Is there a particular story that really stands out in your mind?
A 16-year-old boy in the PICU had abnormal blood vessels in his brain that ruptured and bled into his head. He was on a respirator and in a coma for many weeks, and things were looking quite hopeless. One night while I was on-call, the nurses had the television on, and the channel selector was near his hand that he hadn’t moved in weeks. The Chicago Bulls were playing the NY Knicks, and when the nurse went to change the channel, ever so slowly, he grabbed the remote back from her. Over several months he went on to make a full neurologic recovery.

The Accidental Advocate
Stephen M. Arpadi
St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center & Beth Israel Medical Center, Associate Attending
(Also Columbia University College of Physicians And Surgeons, Assistant Professor Of Pediatrics & Public Health)
Pediatrics

Dr. Arpadi became an HIV/AIDS doctor by default. He intended to become a primary care pediatrician, but he began his medical career during the middle of the pediatric HIV/AIDS epidemic of the late 1980s. Though he launched into this field accidentally, he’s now been a hero for these patients for 25 years and counting.

Tell us about the joys and challenges of your specialty.
The unspeakable loss, sadness, and devastation that HIV has wreaked on so many people in our city is difficult to wrestle with, but the medical and public health achievements that we can manage are incredible and inspiring.

The early years were about keeping children with HIV/AIDS comfortable and living as “normally” as possible for as long as possible, which often translated to helping them die peacefully. It was the rare child who would survive to their 5th birthday, and only a truly lucky few made it to their 10th. These days, with the availability of effective medications that can control the virus, it’s about helping healthy adolescents and young adults make their way through life, discussing future plans, dating (and sex!) educational and career plans and parenting.

A number of those I treated during their childhood are in their 30s. This summer I think I did more pre-college physicals than summer camp ones…pretty unbelievable!

Is there a particular story that really stands out in your mind?
Yesterday, I saw an adorable and healthy 12-month-old for a routine checkup. To anyone else, this would appear to be a normal visit to the pediatrician, but what was special and apparent to me was that her mom was a survivor of pediatric HIV. When she was her daughter’s age, no one would dare to dream that she would survive her childhood, no less become a mother to a beautiful and healthy daughter.

During a visit last week, I was asking a handsome and charming 18-year-old to tell me about the college courses he was planning on taking during his first semester. He too was HIV positive, and, at the time of his birth, the encounter we had last week would have been considered a fantasy at best.

The Mechanic
Dr. Leo Kron
St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center, Senior Attending In Psychiatry
Pediatric Psychiatry

Dr. Kron has always been fascinated by why people are the way they are, which naturally led him to a career in psychiatrics. In his practice, he sees children and adolescents who have problems ranging from anxiety and eating disorders to physical illnesses and learning disabilities. All of these can weigh down on not only a child’s development but also on that of his or her family as well. His job is to break down the roots of a problem and engineer the best way to help his patients development optimally.

What is most challenging in your work as a child psychiatrist?
The frustrations and challenges of the work are mostly related to the treatment of the more severely ill children, for whom science has been too slow in providing cures or prevention. Families must also deal with great expense and social stigma in the process. It can also be frustrating to have to dedicate precious time to help patients get basic reimbursement for their treatment and medications.

What is most rewarding about your job?
Gratification comes from many sources, including the intellectual—the question of what makes people tick has always intrigued me. The current explosion of research in neurobiology expands this enormously fascinating field. Joy also comes from being able to directly help children and their families, sometimes dramatically, with the help of medications and brief therapies, and sometimes more slowly. Problems which are not clearly the result of acute traumatic or medical situations may be chronic or recur at different times across the lifespan, especially when strong stressors re-occur. As a result, over the years, I have intermittently seen little children grow into adults and later into parents themselves.

What do you love most about your work?
How people grow is fascinating. Interacting closely with children at different ages and developmental stages offers a great window into that, from the earliest periods when the major ways of communicating are not yet verbal—occurring through play, make-believe, imagination—to the school [years].
More to the point, I have the privilege of knowing so very personally so many people, young and old, of different persuasions and life experiences—so many eyes on life itself. In the process, my life is expanded. Then, of course, in addition, one is sometimes also granted the great gift of making a difference. It’s always a joy to see the children who I’ve worked with for years, and they feel a bit like family. That constitutes the true “highlight” of my career.

The Joyous
Dr. Jennifer Havens
NYU Langone Medical Center, Vice Chair For Public Psychiatry, Department Of Child And Adolescent Psychiatry, NYU School Of Medicine
(Also Bellevue Hospital Center, Director and Chief of Service, Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry)
Child Psychiatry

Dr. Havens has run the child psychiatry program at Bellevue Hospital, one of the oldest acute care centers for children and adolescents in the US, for the past five years. While she has many professional interests, her primary fascination has always been with the mental health of some of New York’s most complex families—those dealing with abuse and neglect, children and families affected by AIDS and substance abuse, and so forth. Needless to say, her work is tough, but she maintains a sunny attitude and insists on touting the fun parts of the job.

What are some of the challenges you have to overcome in your field?
In the past, there was a lot of trivializing or minimizing kids’ mental health problems. People thought in the past that kids couldn’t get depression because their egos aren’t yet developed, but a lot of the work I did with families affected by AIDS showed that even very young children can be depressed when they are stressed enough. Other times, people try to protect kids by not talking through sensitive issues. Fortunately, there’s been a huge growth in understanding of mental health issues in children and adolescents.

What happens in your program today?
We started with adolescents who were inpatients. We identified their trauma exposure and implemented groups that help them learn skills to master their emotional responses, which has helped to normalize their experiences and to cope more effectively. For the youngest inpatients, we developed a group intervention for 7- to 12-year-olds. They read a book about a bad thing happening to an animal-like creature, and they can relate to that in a helpful way, then we also teach them skills to calm themselves down. At the end of it, kids have a little bit of mastery over what happened to them, they learn to manage it a bit better and understand that it’s not their fault.

What would people be most surprised to hear about?
How much fun it is. People always ask me, “Isn’t your work depressing?” But never have I felt that way about my work. Children and adolescents are open to the joy and love there is in the world. They are ready to share that with us. We just have to reach it.

The Fit Maker
Dr. Dyan Hes
NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, Clinical Assistant Professor Of Pediatrics
(Also Gramercy Pediatrics, Medical Director)
Pediatrics, Obesity

You might not connect an obesity doctor with our city’s favorite spooky holiday, but Dr. Hes does inspire Halloween costumes. Hes, who opened up her own private practice last spring and teaches as an assistant professor of pediatrics at Weill, says that her biggest honor was to be on the inaugural American Board of Obesity Medicine last year. Like all of us, she loves working in the cultural mecca that is New York City.

What would people be surprised to know about what you do?
Despite the obesity epidemic in New York City, there are very few doctors trained in this specialty for pediatrics. I see referrals from all over the Tri-State area. I help educate families about proper nutrition and lifestyles. My methods are easy to follow and I have had much success in this area, where people often feel hopeless. I treat children who are already overweight and children who are at risk.

What do you love about your job the most?
I love seeing families in my office and growing with them. I love walking down the street and seeing my patients, especially when they run up and give me a hug. One of my fondest memories was when my patient’s mom brought me a Halloween photo of her children. They insisted on dressing up as Dr. Hes on Halloween. They put on doctor’s kits and scrubs and wrote nametags that said “Dr. Hes.” They were so proud of their costumes. These small memories are what make being a pediatrician so rewarding.

What has surprised you the most in your career?
There have been two great surprises for me since I opened my own office. One is the vast diversity of my patients. New York is a cultural mecca, and I have patients from all corners of the Earth. Getting to know these families makes my job more interesting. Secondly, I have been truly surprised by the large percentage of newborns in my practice; there’s a real baby boom downtown.

The Butt Maker
Dr. Francisca Velcek
Lenox Hill Hospital, Pediatric Surgeon
Pediatric Surgery

Dr. Velcek always gets a laugh when her daughter tells friends that her mother’s job is to “make new butts”—a reference to a surgery that helps normalize the bowels. As a pediatric surgeon and a professor of surgery, Velcek deals with problems big and small, but she loves that she almost always makes a life-lasting impact.

What is it that you love most about your job?
The surgical problems of children can be very simple or very complex, but most of the things we do can make patients well for the rest of their lives—which means making an impact that lasts at least 70 years. Sometimes we have patients who we operated on or cared for when they were babies who even come back with their children, who may have the same problem as they had when they were young.

Is there a particular operation that you perform which has the greatest impact on a child’s life?
My daughter always tells her friends and classmates that her mom’s favorite operation is “to make new butts.” She means that I operate on children with imperforate anus (a congenitally blocked or missing opening to the anus) to help these children to have normal lives and be able to move their bowels normally.
I think the imperforate anus operation is one of the best operations because it has the greatest impact on a person’s life—it’s good for the entire lifetime. I still remember the first baby I operated on with this problem. It was such a joy to see this baby with a normal bowel movement, and there have been many such cases since then.

Are there any specific operations that you performed that really stand out in your mind in your career?
A very special case was that of a five-year-old Jehovah’s Witness who had a huge tumor in the chest, compressing her entire lung and causing her severe respiratory problems whenever she got sick. Because of her religion, a blood transfusion was out of the question—as was the typical, major operation for removing the tumor. After being met with numerous refusals to operate, followed by introductions of major radical operative maneuvers, they finally decided to come to Long Island College Hospital because of our bloodless program. I had done a similar case and was hopeful about removing the tumor in a less invasive manner than previously advised. Suffice it to say that this young lady is now in college and comes to New York to visit me.

ABOUT CASTLE CONNOLLY

Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. is a healthcare research and information company founded in 1991 by a former medical college board chairman and president to help guide consumers to America’s top doctors and top hospitals. Castle Connolly’s established survey and research process, under the direction of an MD, involves tens of thousands of top doctors and the medical leadership of leading hospitals.

Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select top doctors on both the national and regional levels. Its online nominations process – located at www.castleconnolly.com/nominations – is open to all licensed physicians in America who are able to nominate physicians in any medical specialty and in any part of the country, as well as indicate whether the nominated physicians is, in their opinion, among the best in their region in their medical specialty or among the best in the nation in their medical specialty. Careful screening of doctors’ educational and professional experience is essential before final selection is made among those physicians most highly regarded by their peers. The result – we identify the top doctors in America and provide you, the consumer, with detailed information about their education, training and special expertise in our paperback guides, national and regional magazine “Top Doctors” features and online directories.

Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly Top Doctors.

Physicians selected for inclusion in this magazine’s “Top Doctors” feature may also appear as Regional Top Doctors online at www.castleconnolly.com, or in one of Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors™ guides, such as America’s Top Doctors® or America’s Top Doctors® for Cancer.
