Bambini Pediatrics

Wholesome Care for Kids

Your Subtitle text
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 (also called allopathic) pediatric care with complementary (also called 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.

Bambini Re-Open to New Patients
After a long, cold winter, we are pleased to announce that we have hired three more practitioners and are once again able to schedule new patients.  Those families on our waiting should have all been contacted at this point.

We are also happy to once again begin scheduling prenatal visits.  These will primarily be booked with Lauren Van Buren PA and Jennifer Lown FNP. 

Bambini Recognized by HV Parent Magazine
Our practice was honored again in 2015 by Hudson Valley Parent Magazine with two "Favorite Docs & Healthcare Professionals" awards!  The selection is based on feedback from parents.  Most notably, our own Dawn Prati C-PNP was ranked as top nurse practitioner!

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.
