I made an appt for my son and due to insurance changes had to change providers a few weeks before the appt at coastal kids. I tried calling to cancel well within 48 hours notice and called numerous times and could not get someone on the phone. Well I ended up getting a bill for a no show of 50. If the office did not answer the phone how was I supposed to cancel the appt Even now I am trying to call the number on the bill to explain this and get rid of this bill and still cannot get through to someone. Ive even called the 954 customer service line Ive seen on the other reviews and still cannot get ahold of a live person to speak to. This is ridiculous and I will continue trying to call to speak to someone even though I continuously get the voicemail. If this is how this office conducts business I am glad to not have taken my son.

We love coastal kids We have been going here for almost 5 years since my son was a newborn. I have found its super easy to get a last minute appointment and the on call services on the weekends are extremely helpful We have gone to several of the doctors here and have loved all of them. The front desk women named Christina is diligent in her job caring and quick to get you an appointment that works for your schedule I love that they take a big range of insurance including medi-cal If you need a referral for a specialist they are quick and make sure the place they refer you too takes your insurance All in all we love it here and dont plan on going anywhere

Worst experience I have ever had at a medical facility. Countless issues with scheduling computer problems referrals charting errors and when brought to their attention they take zero accountability for. The staff is beyond rude. I have experienced my issues and concerns being discussed in the waiting room for everybody to hear instead of privately talking to me in the back. Very unprofessional. I have never seen the same doctor twice and and they do not prioritize your childs care.

Dr Phillips and his nurse Leighna is hands down the best time. They make sure my 4 kids are comfortable and truly go above and beyond. The office is always clean and welcoming My kids are typically very nervous to go to doctors I feel so thankful to have found them my kids finally are at ease coming to see Dr Phillips and Nurse Leighna. My mama heart thanks you. Highly recommend

Dr. Phillips at Coastal Kids has been our kids pediatrician since our oldest was born. 7 years and 4 kids later and there is nowhere else we would go. We adore Dr. Phillips and our absolute favorite nurse Leighna so much that we have recommended them to everyone we know. Everyone in the office is super sweet and helpful and the front staff Christina Sandy and Monay are amazing. They have all been lifesavers when weve called-in hoping for a last minute appointment when one of the babies has woken up sick. We are so grateful for how they all have loved on and genuinely cared about our babies. Not only do we love Dr. Phillips and his staff but so do the kids. We appreciate the way Dr. Phillips will make recommendations but still allows us as the parents to make the ultimate decision without feeling pressured one way or another. Leighna is the absolute sweetest and best with the kids and they are crazy about her too We just want to say Thank you to Dr. Phillips Leighna and the ladies at the front. The ways you guys have gone above and beyond has never gone unnoticed Forever gratefulThe Hornes

Be prepared to deal with the billing department.Our experience in the office was fine. But after going into the office to confirm that our accounts were fully settled we move overseas and then got a phone call that there were payments due. We told them that our phone numbers were due to change the next week and to please email the invoices so we could review them.We then attempted to email and call them from our new phone numbers several times with no reply and gave up. 1 year later a collections alert showed up on our credit report harming our ability to move back to the US. We contacted them again paid the amount shown for collections and called because we had previously paid that same amount before leaving the states. We were told on the phone that they had missed one of our previous payments and that it could be refunded after we paid the collections agency but when we called back they said it was not a mistake and that they would get back to us. 1 month later no word.All of this without ever showing us an invoice or explaining which services we had received that werent paid. My business would be bankrupt if we operated this way.
