Welcome to Manhattan Valley Pediatrics

We know that finding the right pediatrician is important for both you and your little one. Our goal at Manhattan Valley Pediatrics is to create a warm, welcoming office where families feel supported.  For the past 13 years the founders of MVP have been working in pediatric practices learning what works and what doesn’t.  We have come together to form a practice we would want for our own children, in our own community. We practice personalized pediatric care, using the most up-to-date information and technology to keep kids and parents happy and healthy.

Prenatal Appointment Request


    Patient of Dr. Hoffman

    Dr Hoffman provided the most caring, supportive, practical and thoughtful care to my two young children, and myself as a new mom with lots of questions. From the earliest newborn days Dr Hoffman was consistently comprehensive in her care yet never alarmist. She helped us through early issues with weight gain, colic and reflux with great compassion and respect for our family. Whenever we saw or spoke to other doctors in the practice, they echoed the same level of care. We are so grateful to have found this practice for our children and know they are in the best of hands.

    Patient of Dr. Grant

    We’ve been going to Dr. Grant for many years and we have never left her office unsatisfied. Dr. Grant provides excellent medical and customer service to all her patients and families. My kids love her!

    Patient of Dr. Gati

    Dr. Gati is exactly the type of pediatrician we were hoping to have for our newborn. Beyond being an excellent doctor, she is warm, caring and relaxed (in the most professional way). We feel so fortunate to have found her.

    Patient of Dr. Nowell

    I have been a patient of WEST CARE PEDIATRICS since August 2000. I always believed Max Van Gilder would stay there until my children graduated college because he was the smartest, greatest, kindest doctor in all of Manhattan. That's not reasonable. Max retired last summer and I met Dr Lisa Nowell (his replacement) and this office is going to thrive. She is just what Max ordered! A bright, energetic, kind and thoughtful pediatrition. She treats my three children with respect and generosity.

    Patient of Dr. Saha

    Dr. Saha is amazing. He is caring and attentive. As a first time mom he answered all of my questions and was even concerned about my well-being and how I was handling motherhood. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.
