All the doctors at this practice are fantastic, each in his/her own way. They’re thorough, patient and great with kids of all ages. My 4 y/o doesn’t mind going to the doctor(!!) I have to add that the reception staff are truly WONDERFUL here. It’s hard to find a family in Jackson Heights that doesn’t belong to this practice… they’re that good!

Highly recommend Manhattan Queens Pediatrics to anyone looking for great care, welcoming staff and meticulous service. The reception desk is one of the best we’ve ever dealt with. They have always been super responsive and quick to respond to questions and requests. We’ve taken our son to Dr. Rahul Hate & Dr. Blair Guidera since his birth and have been amazed by their service and guidance. During Covid-19 too we have felt comfortable going in for our regular checkups and vaccination.
We couldn’t recommend them enough.

Nawra (Mother of 1)

I switched to Manhattan Queens Pediatrics after two months because something about our previous pediatrician just didn’t work for us. I was hesitant on whether I would see any differences but after the first visit I knew I had made the right decision. I have seen both Dr. Martino and Dr. Hate and they have both been wonderful. They take the necessary time to go through issues, they both have a very friendly bedside manner and it has been very easy to reach a doctor after hours. I originally thought it was strange that they didn’t have too many reviews so I want to do my part to shine some deserved light on them. They are wonderful and you can’t go wrong bringing your child here.


Love Dr. Martino – we have always had an amazing and personal experience with the doctors there. They even came to visit our baby in the hospital when she needed emergent care. Highly recommend.

Coryn (Mother of 1)

My family loves Dr Martino more than words. She has been my kids’ primary doctor since birth and she is thorough, knowledgeable, patient, kind, and just a wonderful human. When my infant spiked a fever with infection at 11pm on New Years Eve, Dr Martino was there on the phone offering guidance and making arrangements. She was the first person to identify developmental delays in one of my kids and was supportive every step of the way during evaluations, therapies, etc. My family has dealt with everything from run of the mill kid illness to super rare genetic conditions. Dr Martino is always our first call and the specialists she refers have been absolutely incredible.

The office staff is also excellent. They are quick to send paperwork, contact doctors, etc. Ivette and Dawnmarie are amazing at their jobs. They know everyone who walks through the door and my kids love being loved by them. We moved out of state but continue to make the drive to see Dr Martino because my kids love her and we all trust her for the best medical care. I only wish this office treated adults.

We have had overwhelmingly positive experiences with the other doctors in this practice as well.

We have been coming to the East 38th Street practice for over 10 years. The doctors are very kind and patient. And my kids love their cool bandaids.

Connie Y. (Mother of 3)

Dr. Guidera has been our children’s pediatrician for the past 5 years and she has been the absolute best!  Her patience, thoroughness and ability to put the children at ease has been such a stress reliever, especially when it comes to those dreaded shots!   We love coming to see her and our experience is always a positive one.

Lila (Mother of 4)

Our children have been patients of Manhattan Queens Pediatrics since they were born.  From the beginning, the medical care our family has received is unsurpassed. The doctors are all kind and knowledgeable, and spend time getting to know our children as individuals.  The office is pleasant and efficient at handling scheduling and billing issues. I am always impressed with the care and professionalism we receive at each and every visit. As a health care provider myself, my expectations for the level of care my family receive are very high.  My kids look forward to their visits. I could not recommend Dr. Guidera and her associates more. Your children will be in the best hands.

Ruby G. (Mother of 2)

We have taken our three children to see Dr. Guidera and her colleagues in the Manhattan office since our oldest child was born (she is now 8 years old!)  The doctors are amazing. They take their time with each appointment, and are great with all our kids at every age; as a result, our kids are never afraid of going to the doctor and look forward to their appointments! They also take their time answering any questions we may have.  From being first time parents of a newborn, to parents of three school aged children, we have always felt so comfortable with Dr. Guidera and the guidance she has given us as our children grow. The doctors are available 24/7 for sick calls or to answer questions from home; we have never had difficulty contacting a doctor when we need someone.

The office staff is always friendly and makes scheduling both routine and unexpected sick visit appointments easy and stress-free.  We love the office and it’s location; everyone is friendly from the moment you enter the building, and the doorman always remembers us.  Waiting room is comfortably cozy and provides a warm environment that puts my children at ease when we arrive.

Lila and Ian A. (Parents of 3)

Our two daughters are patients of Dr. Guidera and Dr. Hate.  The doctors are always available to answer any questions and they take their time in examining our children.  They both have an incredible bedside manner and are highly skilled and experienced. The staff at the office is professional and kind.  We highly recommend the practice!!

Dr. Martino, and all the doctors in the practice, are absolutely wonderful. The staff at the Queens office always makes you feel welcome and like you’re part of their family. Dr. Martino’s care for our two sons has been outstanding. She takes the time to get to know us and our family instead of just treating us like another patient. When it comes to your children’s health, you want someone like Dr. Martino to make sure nothing gets missed. We couldn’t have a more perfect pediatrician for our children!
