At Briarvista Pediatrics, we recognize that having direct access to a doctor who personally knows your child and your family is a substantial benefit in navigating what may otherwise be a long and daunting road.
With an emphasis on evidence-based medical care, safety, and the best practice guidelines set out by the American Academy of Pediatrics, our goal is to create a partnership between a child, his or her parents, and the pediatrician.
We see patients starting with newborn care, offering the unique support of Lactation Consulting Services by a board-certified pediatrician.
From health maintenance visits that start at birth and continue through college, to same-day sick visits for those times when your child has an urgent complaint, you will be provided with the highest quality of medical care and counseling.
In addition, we are happy to see your child for sports physicals, asthma care, ADHD evaluations and management, behavioral health services, and much more.
Briarvista Pediatrics is happy to be accepting new patients. Learn how to transfer care to Briarvista Pediatrics, review our policies, and find the necessary forms here.
Having a Baby?
We are happy to meet you prior to your baby’s arrival. NEW for 2022, we will be scheduling twice monthly ZOOM visits with our physicians, so please call our office to register. During that virtual visit we will discuss our hours, policies, and services we provide. Questions may be asked via chat.
Our physicians do not see newborns in the hospital. Instead, the experienced newborn hospitalists will determine the care your baby will receive there. As soon as you know when you are being discharged from the hospital, please call our office to schedule the baby’s first visit. We will arrange for the first visit within 1-2 days of discharge. Please be sure to let us know when you call if there are any concerning medical problems in the hospital, such as prematurity, jaundice or weight loss.
The first visit is usually not scheduled as a lactation consultation. Instead, the first visit will allow Dr. Wexler or Dr. Levy to get to know you and your baby and perform a thorough history and exam. If you would like the first visit to also cover any breastfeeding problems – such as pain or difficulty with latch, supply issues, or a tongue-tie – please be sure to mention that on the phone and we will always do our best to accommodate the request. Read more about the lactation services we provide.
Please note that while we do not generally require a prenatal visit before accepting a newborn as a patient, we will only accept babies born via homebirth whose parents arranged for a prenatal visit AND call us within 24 hours of delivery to schedule the first visit with the pediatrician.
Eve Wexler, MD, IBCLC, FAAP
Eve Oster Wexler was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. Her undergraduate education was completed at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA, where she received a Bachelors of Science in Biology and English & American Literature, cum laude. She then spent a year working at The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH, before entering medical school at Tulane School of Medicine in New Orleans, LA.
Upon graduating from medical school, Dr. Wexler completed her residency in pediatrics at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, NY. She then stayed at Mount Sinai for a fellowship in General Academics and Health Evidence & Policy and as an attending in the Department of Pediatrics. Her years at Mount Sinai helped instill a love of teaching as well as a firm commitment to practicing evidence-based medicine.
After her first son was born, Dr. Wexler and her family relocated to the Atlanta area where she worked in private practices outside the perimeter. It was during this time that she realized there was a lack of available services for new moms needing support with breastfeeding. While nursing her 2nd son, Dr. Wexler decided to become a certified lactation consultant to help provide those services herself.
Dr. Wexler is very excited to have opened her own practice in 2017, with a focus on the values she finds most important in medicine today. In addition to lactation consultations, she has a particular interest in child safety, ADHD diagnosis and management, and health & nutrition. She is board certified in pediatrics and a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, as well as being an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). Outside the office, you are most likely to find her at the Atlanta Zoo with her family or at home reading a good science-fiction or fantasy series.
Laurie Levy, MD, FAAP
Laurie Levy was born and raised in Tucker, Georgia. She completed her undergraduate education at Georgia Tech with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. She then worked at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Atlanta doing clinical research for a year before starting medical school at Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University in Israel.
After completing her MD degree, Dr. Levy returned home to Atlanta and did her residency in Pediatrics at Emory University. She then worked in the emergency rooms at Egleston and Hughes Spalding Children’s Hospitals as an attending physician and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics for 6 years, and now she is excited to be joining Dr. Wexler at Briarvista Pediatrics! She is passionate about child safety and preventative care and firmly believes in practicing evidence-based medicine.
Dr. Levy became interested in breastfeeding medicine while nursing her second baby. She is pursuing her board certification in lactation medicine so she can help new moms navigate the intricacies and challenges of breastfeeding so they can meet their breastfeeding goals.
In her spare time, Dr. Levy enjoys reading a good book, spending time with family, traveling, and being out in nature.
