Bambini Pediatrics

Wholesome Care for Kids

An integrative medical practice
Bambini (meaning "children" in Italian) offers your family the resources of a typical pediatric office:  check-ups, immunizations, urgent visits, and prescriptions.  But we try to go a little further -- by recommending options such as herbs, homeopathic remedies, and referrals to natural healthcare specialists as circumstances and interest suggest. 

We feel this "integration" of traditional/ allopathic pediatric care with complementary/ holistic options puts us on the cutting edge of a growing trend, and may give your children a better chance of coping with the health challenges of the 21st century!

Speaking of such, we also have growing interest in providing basic-level biomedical treatment for children on the autistic spectrum, for patients with PANDAS, ADHD, and other special needs.  Finally, we are happy to offer second opinions on complex medical issues.

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Anna Zolotnitskaya will be joining Bambini on July 1, 2014.  Doctor Anna, as we call her, obtained her MD degree from
St. Petersburg Pediatric Academy in 1983, the first medical school in the world to specialize in pediatrics.  She completed a three year pediatric residency in Leningrad in 1989, and a second pediatric residency in Beer-Sheva, Israel in 1994. 


She then emigrated to New York, and undertook fellowship training in pediatric nephrology at Albert Einstein from 1995 through 1998.  From 2002 until early 2014, Dr. Anna served as attending pediatric nephrologist  at Maria Fareri Childrens hospital – performing renal biopsies, treating children on dialysis, and managing kidney transplant patients.  During this tenure, she also...

Summer Institute for the Gifted

Once again this summer, Bambini has been selected as the "camp doctor" for Vassar College's Summer Institute for the Gifted.  Dr. Malak has been associated with this program for more than a decade.

Bambini Recognized by HV Parent Magazine
Our practice was recognized again this year by Hudson Valley Parent Magazine with a "Favorite Docs & Healthcare Professionals" award!  The selection is based on feedback from parents.

Generation Rescue

Bambini was recently recognized by Generation Rescue as a "recommended physician" practice.

Generation Rescue is dedicated to the recovery of children and adults with autism spectrum disorders.
It helps provide medical treatment, laboratory tests, and supplements for families that could not otherwise afford this care. It also hosts the largest autism conference in the country and makes mentors available to families with a newly diagnosed child.  The mentors help parents get their child started on a biomedical protocol. 

Living and Being

The September 2011 issue of Living and Being, a familiar insert to the Poughkeepsie Journal, featured an extensive series on integrative pediatrics.  Both Dr. Stephen Cowan from Riverside Pediatrics in Croton and our Dr. Malak were featured.
