Beirut’s best pediatricians according to moms

Finding the right pediatrician is as important for parents as it is for kids. You want someone whose knowledge you trust, and who won’t make you feel guilty about calling in a panic at 3am.

We asked Jaleesa‘s community of moms in Beirut to share their pediatricians’ contacts and why they love working with them.

Jaleesa did not take a commission from these pediatricians. They were referred by our community of moms.

We’ll be updating this list continually, so please let us know if you have something to add.
