I have been bringing my children to Dr. Mabagos since they were born. My first was born in 2010 and my second this year 2015. Although I do love Dr. Mabagos and his bedside manner and I'm growing impatient with the office staff. I'm finding it harder to make appointments and have to call back every morning for a sick visit only to be told they only have one appointment time available. How can I make an appointment for when I'm available? I have seen a few other drs at his office and although I prefer Dr. Mabagos' humor I appreciate the other drs that are less likely to offer medicine at every ailment. I was also unpleasantly surprised to find that since having my first, their office is still not up to date with breastfeeding. There is one European dr (Dr. Dericof?) at his practice that is a breastfeeding advocate and has helped me with my daughters food allergies while breastfeeding.
This office is the least professional. the staff is lazy and the wait time is extremely long. Bad office great doctor, very sad.
I brought my daughter here for 3 visits. The first time, the doctor they sent in was decent. The second time, I had a European doctor who was EXTREMELY rude and flat out mean to me. He was cold and uncaring. He was completely unopen to questions and concerns from me, a parent to an 18 month old child. Dr.Mabagos himself is wonderful, but the other doctors employed at this office are TERRIBLE and I will NEVER EVER bring any of my children back here.
We really loved Dr Mabagos, he is funny, caring, playful, and makes the kids feel at ease. I feel though that the level of care has gone downhill in recent years. He is overbooked and overworked and it is taking a toll. I do not care for the other Dr that has been in the office for the past year and have absolutely no trust in that Dr. I also feel that Dr Mabagos does not agree 100% of the time with the other Drs recomendations. We have unfortunately left the care of Dr Mabagos, as have other families I know. He really needs to rethink the direction his practice is headed.
My most memorable moment w Dr Mabagos was many years ago but I will never forget it. My 4yr old was being treated that day and after 2 breathing treatments still needed a shot in her thigh , she was crying and as we were leaving she wouldn't walk to the car begging me to carry her. I was struggling to carry my 6mon & a huge diaper bag. Dr Mabagos picked her up gently calmed her down and carried her out to the car for me!! I was never so impressed & greatfull leaving a doctors office in my life! I have continually recommended him since & my entire family now uses him!
my lids have always seen Dr. Mabagos and we all love him the staff is really great as well when we need to get in we just call and we can go right over.
Dr. Mabagos and his staff are committed to caring for children, there are no dollar signs dictating the service, he is thorough, compassionate and genuinely concerned for the overall welfare of his patients. His staff is among the kindest, friendliest, most helpful and considerate I've encountered. It is wonderful to see people treated as people, not potential income sources.If you want a professional, yet caring physician for your child, this is the Doctor you need to see.
My daughter was 3 days old when Dr. Mabagos first saw her. I informed him that she had been throwing up after feedings and it was yellow in color. He said I was probably over-nursing her and that she was fine. Throughout the day, the vomiting continued and I called him as I was worried. He said as long as her diaper was wet, she was fine. I used my instincts and rushed her to the hospital that night where she was transferred by ambulance to Jersey Shore, quickly diagnosed with intestinal malrotation and emergency surgery was performed. She would have died if I didn't bring her that night. When I informed Dr. Mabagos' Lacey office, a call was never returned and that was all I needed to switch doctors. I understand people are human and make mistakes, but how dare you fail to follow up with your patient!
He is the best doctor I have ever met. He is so thorough, and has an amazing bedside manor, and just a love for children.
I have been brining my children to Dr. Mabagos for the last 8years. My kids are 8yr 3yr and 5mnths and I just absolutley love him and his staff. He has so many children that he sees and everytime I go to see him and i have only 1 or 2 of my children he always asks where the others are. Now that is a good memmory but makes me feel comfortable that he truley knows and cares about the children he sees. He is very caring and shows concern when needed and helps as much as he can. I absolutley love him and will never go to another pediatric Dr. He is one of the best and I highly recomend him. I couldnt thank him enough.
Dr. Mabagos is the most caring and best Pediatricians I have found. That's saying a lot since I used to work for an entire practice of 7 Pediatricians. I would not bring my daughter anywhere else. I called on a Sunday morning because my daughter was having a severe earache and a high fever. He called me right back and told me to bring her to the ER. After she was seen by the ER Dr; Dr. Mabogos came right to her in he ER to see her himself. He takes the time and interacts with the children. Asks them questions directly. On more than one occasion I have recommended him to friends for their children. Now they could not be happier! -Write about overall experiences-Write about what you like or dislike about your physician-Write about whether you would recommend-Write as if you are talking to a peer who is asking your opinion
i love dr. mabagos. he is the best doctor any child can have growing up. i wish i could go to him as an adult. what a wonderful caring person.
I feel like he does not need someone else to say how amazing he is, but I have beening my daughter to him since she was born. Even though she was eating gaining wieght, and growing at a normal weight, i kept telling him something was wrong with her stomach. He agreed with me, she was always full of gas, uncomfortible, not sleeping, and never going regularly. He sent me to 3 gastorologist who all saw the weight gain, the normal height, and good eating habits and sent me away with no concern for her discomfort. Dr. mabagos never gave up, he sent me to two more after calling all over NJ. Finally and after many test which Dr. Mabagos ran himself they found out that she does not have the enzyme to digest sugar (it only took someone three years to get us an answer). Dr. Mabagos stodd by my side and knew I was not crazy (which ever other doctor made me feel). He spent plenty of time with me at my visit listening to what i said and trying new plans and diets for you to see if anything would help. He spent three years with me, I felt like he went through ever hurdle with me. In the end my daughter eats no complex sugars and she is a happy and heathly 3 year old.
My expierience with dr mabagos was terrific! he is the best doctor i have ever been to. He cares so much for your child and you can just tell he is very passionate about his job and the well being of your children.If any of my friends or any one for that fact asked me to recommend a doctor for there children it would be him.If you are pregnant and meeting with doctors to find one for your little bun in the oven just go to his office and im telling you,you will love him! it doesnt get any better!!!
I pray that you never really have the opportunity to test out your doctor. My first daughter was never ill so she only saw the doctor for well visits. My second daughter almost lost her bowels at three days old under the care of Dr. Mabagos. He wasn't concerned when I brought her in for the first time after she was born and informed him that she was vomiting yellow after each feeding. I called him after the checkup to let him know it didn't stop, and still no concern. After I used my best judgement and took her to the hospital, we were transferred by ambulance to Jersey Shore where she underwent emergency surgery for intestinal malrotation. Looking back, all the symptoms were there. I called his office to inform him and never even received a call back! Guess he really cared...
Dr. Mabogos is a GREAT doctor who really cares about your childs well being. He is very kind and caring and I would tell everyone to use him...
I have been bringing my kids to Dr. Jerry Mabagos for about 14 years now. All three of my children receive great care from him. I could not ask for a better Dr. for my children. We all love him!
He and his staff are the most courteous people in the medical profession. They truly care about the patients, not just making a few bucks. He is so good to the kids that one of my daughters actually smiles when she hears that she has to go see Dr. Mabagos, and clearly has a crush on him. The other one was reluctant to go until his office moved and the other half of his practice has moved away.
My Daughter has two chronic illness. Dr. Jerry has been caring for her since she was six months old. He has saved her life twice. He rushed her from the office each time to personally care for.I thank God for such a wonderful caring man. His office staff is outstanding,in Brick. Renee, Erin, Nicole and Nadine are awesome. Renee and Erin treat my daughter like there friend and she loves everyone there.
Dr Mabagos has been my 3yr old daughter Dr since day one. As a first time mom I had an insane amount of questions. He would always take the time to answer each one. It didn't matter how busy he was. He never rushes you and makes sure you understand everything before you leave. He truly is an amazing Dr. I have recommended him to several of my friends and customers. They all feel the same!!!
FABULOUS! We love him and so does out daughter! She is 17months old and Dr. M nas been so patient with all of the millions of questions that we (new parents)had. I would highly reccomend him to anyone looking for a wonderful doctor and someone who truly loves his job and the kids!
Dr. Mabagos has been our family doctor since the day he first visited my oldest son in the hospital over 11 years ago. I'll never forget our first visit in his office. I had just finished breast feeding my son and he fell asleep in my arms. When Dr. Mabagos came in, I started to get up so I he could examine my baby. He said no, got down on his knees on the hard linoleum floor, and examined him while he was on my lap! (I knew then he was a special man!)He is ALWAYS pleasant! He once opened my son's diaper and I cringed when my son peed on his tie!! Dr. Mabagos just laughed and said, "I should know better!!" He has called on weekends to see how his patients are, explains everything to me, and listens to my boys as if he has all the time in the world. They love him! My youngest is autistic, and Dr. Mabagos is so patient and kind with him. He always asks them what they are doing in school and lets them talk! He diagnosed when my 8 month old was going to need surgery and managed to keep me sane! I am so glad to have a doctor we can depend on!!
Dr Mabagos is a wonderful Doctor and a wonderful person. I know I will never take my children to anyone else. I have even had several family members and friends that now go to see him and they can not say thank you enough to me... WE LOVE HIM DEARLY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love him, love him, love him! My kids are 16 & 7yrs old and he remembers them each and every time they come in the office. Can't ask for a better doctor!
I was a first time mom with a baby who had colic, reflu, and allergy to almost every formula. I don't even know where to begin to tell you how amazing Dr. Mabagos was. Dr. Mabagos called me over weekends, made me appointments when i needed them, and never rushed me out of his office (even when i was a emergency patient) I have never minded waiting, knowing he was giving the same attention to another mother, and I have never waited longer than 20 minutes. Dr. Mabagos never made me feel crazy with all my concerns and when my child was an infant i spent more time in his office then I did anywhere else. I am grateful to have found Dr. Mabagos.
Dr. Mabagos is amazing. He is very caring and nice. The kids love him and so do we. He is the best Pediatrician around!! I travel a 1/2 hour to see him and I would travel a lot longer if I needed to.
Dr. Mabagos is a godsend! He is an extremely caring,loving and professional doctor and I am so glad we found him. Both of my sons love him and I would not want to take them to anyone else!
My son has been going to him for more than 10 years, he won't see anyone else. He is extremely caring and a wonderful doctor. He truly cares about every patient. On one visit my Mom asked if he accepts senior citizens as patients!
