    I have been taking all 3 of my children to Dr. Trogan's practice for at least 8 years. They are courteous, friendly, and professional.

    Sandra Zeleniak

    I have been going to this office since my son was born in 2013. I now also take my daughter who was born early this year! The staff is great Ashley and Regina are always friendly and helpful in person and on the phone. Gigi is my girl and she’s always so great with the baby especially during vaccines, she’s loving and gentle, I always get happy when I see she’s working. I love to get appts with Sally and Dr Malaty (who did a phenomenal job piercing my daughter’s ears). I never dread going and have had pleasant experiences every time! Even times I’ve had to call billing and talk to Kathy. I tell everyone to come here!

    I love ivy pediatrics! Every location is great. I will follow SALLY to any location! Front desk girls are amazing. Always cheerful. Ashley u always have a smile on ur face. Nicole in South Amboy always a smile as well. Clean place. Takes you right in. Always can fit us for a appointment. Always get confirmation call. Respectful place! Will not change!

    Heather Haasz

    Great staff! The doctor was very nice and helpful! My 4 year old had to get 4 shots and the nurse was so nice and gentle!

    My husband and I went for our prenatal appointment and we were immediately impressed. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming, answered all of our questions (we had a lot as first time parents :)). Our son is now six months old, and we continue to be impressed by this practice. I have called for several emergency type appointments, and the staff is always accommodating and can get my son in that same day. Our home office is the South Amboy location, but we have also been to the Manalapan office as well. The hours are great, and the nurses and doctors are extremely knowledgeable. We have had great appointments with the new NP - Sally Isaacs; she is the type of provider that you can tell immediately that she really cares about her patients. I would highly recommend her to other parents - especially first time ones! She takes extra time to explain things to us, and doesn't rush us through our list of questions. This practice is excellent and we are happy to have our son be a patient there!

    Love this practice!. My daughter is 4 months and we were recommended Ivy as her PCP by 5 family friends. Dr. Trogan is fantastic and listens to the parents. The staff at all 3 locations are fantastic! They always get back to you ASAP when you have a question or concern and they always have smiles on there faces. Ivy truly has the BEST staff I have come across and I have worked in healthcare for over 10 years!

    Kimberly Lawrence

    Excellent office staff and wonderful and caring doctors. Doctor Trogan is very thorough and I never feel rushed if I have questions. With three office locations to choose from and night and weekend hours, you never have trouble getting an appointment. Would highly recommend Ivy Pediatrics to anyone looking for a new pediatric practice!

    I love this pediatric! very professional and clean. Not so much of a waiting time. The staff is wonderful. My son has been going there since he was 6 years old and now he's 10. I will definitely be bringing my new baby to their office.

    Blanca Turner

    As always the front desk was friendly this was the first time we'd met Sally I was amazed at my Boys ease of conversation with her and how she treated them with the same respect she would an adult. I also was impressed with the fact that she offered my 12 yr old son a safe haven and a person to speak to if he was ever in need of it. I would highly recommend Sally to anyone looking for a new doctor and I also inquired about only scheduling my appointments with her she's a true asset to Ivy Pediatrics

    I've been going there for almost 8 years. Dr. Trogan, Catherine (the NP) and Regina have always been wonderful w my family

    I normally love everything about ivy pediatrics

    The office staff! They are awesome and super sweet!

    Dr. Malaty of Ivy Pediatrics is by far the best pediatrician around....she has taken care of my children since they were born. The compassion and level of care she has given to them and me is unmatched. She has always calmed me down, when needed (which is quite often!) and she has always treated my children like her own. She is quick to call back and always manages to squeeze us in. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Malaty, she is truly one of my favorite people.

    I personally recommend the East Brunswick office of Ivy Pediatrics for the following reasons:

    Office Overall:
    – excellent customer service
    – very flexible schedules
    – comparably short wait times
    – cool animated movies playing on an LCD in each office

    Doctor In Specific:
    – extremely friendly with an excellent sense of humor
    - will take time to explain and tolerates parents' preferences of options
    - is knowledgeable about subject and has a magic way of keeping our daughter calm :-)

    Shalimar Carrasquillo

    My husband and I are very happy and grateful to everyone at the south amboy office. From the doctors to the women at the front desk. I actually look forward to seeing the ladies at the front desk because they are so attentive, sweet, patient, and caring. One woman especially (I wish I remembered her name), remembers things about my children including their personality quirks. They are patient with my overly sensitive little girl and understanding with my rambunctious little boy who has taken off running through the office. Dr. Trogan of course is always wonderful as well as the other doctors and PA's I have come across at this office. Some have more patience than others but they are all good and I leave feeling confident in their instruction. Thank you!
