I took my child to see Dawn Prati at Bambini Pediatrics when no one else could decipher what was wrong with her. She believed me when I told her that my child had not been in the least bit sick before January of this year. In fact my child had never once missed a day of school. She listened to my daughter's symptoms and ordered a full blood work up immediately. Her patience in helping me to determine what had happened to my child overnight was amazing and I am thankful to her for all her help. We now have a diagnosis and my child is 85% better. My daughter had seen multiple specialists before seeing Dawn and all they did was pump her full of psych meds she did not need. My daughter was then hospitalized and pumped with more psych meds. When she first saw Dawn she was a walking zombie who couldn't even stay awake enough to be examined. Dawn took the time and listened to what my daughter had been experiencing and set her on a plan to recovery. Had we never gone to see her, my child may not even have been functioning. Today she is almost back to normal and I owe it all to Dawn Prati and Bambini Pediatrics for helping her. I would recommend her or this practice to anyone. Thank you.

Dawn is such an amazing, loving Doctor. She not only gives advice from a doctors perspective, but from a moms perspective as well. She is always thorough, answers any and all questions, and truly cares about her patients. My daughter is 2 and she has been seeing Dawn since she was a week old and I have never had an complaints! We always recommend her to other friends and families with children. She was also very helpful with my brother, who has ADHD. We can't thank Dawn enough for the care she has given our daughter for every visit (including ear piercing) and are honored to right a review for her nomination!

Dawn is one of the best PCP's I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and taking care of my 7 year old son who has Autism. She spent days reviewing his Medical Records and took her time with us and my son at his first visit. My son loves seeing Dawn, she is exceptional with children and very knowledgeable. She is amazing!

Dr. Dawn is thorough, kind, patient. She's amazing with kids and makes them not only comfortable but helps them feel informed and involved in their own health care. She has helped is in so many ways with our son and his autoimmune condition. I want to be a kid again just so she can be my dr.

Dawn is the best practioner we have seen. We love Dr. Malek and Bambini Pediatrics. Dawn was my daughter's RN when she was born and in the NICU. I was delighted she joined Bambini as an NP. She goes above and beyond and is always helpful and supportive!
