Dr. Payne has been the best doctor for our son who is now 4. She is always one step ahead in making sure he gets The most important care. If she thinks he is a little behind on anything developmental, she points us in the right direction and always stays positive. We couldn''t have picked a better doctor.

Dr. Payne has always been the best for our son. She is always the first one to suggest something to improve our sons life. He needed extra help with speech at a young age and she noticed right away. She wrote him a letter to make sure they accepted him and now you can''t stop him from talking. I know that if I ever have any worries she will be there to help.

"Dr. Payne is the quintessential ""family"" doctor - she is absolutely committed to quality care for her patients; it literally feels like you are visiting family when you see her. She takes the time to really get to know her patients, as well as the family they live with . Her manner is gentle, warm and sincere. She concerns herself with the ""whole"" child - she expresses interest beyond the physical health of her patients; she wants to be sure that they are challenged intellectually, supported emotionally, and physically healthy enough to meet the challenges of school, family, and community. We are so grateful to Dr. Payne for her many years of dedication to children and families, and for all the children she has helped along the way. Our children have benefited from her caring and expertise for over a decade. We proudly nominate Dr. Barbara Payne as our favorite doctor!

Dr. Payne was the only doctor who finally listened to us, and recognized my son's symptoms for what they were - childhood cancer. She was there with us at the hospital when we received the preliminary MRI results and she recommended immediate transfer to Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC. She continued to be a presence in our son's life through his treatment and now that he died, she continues to diligently take care of his twin brother. She listens to our son, to our concerns and helps us balance the fear and anxiety that comes with losing your child to cancer with the realities of normal childhood. There is no doctor in the Hudson Valley I would recommend more than Dr. Payne.
