Dr. Nelli Gluzman, founder and physician at Blossom Pediatrics

utilizes an integrative, functional, and holistic approach to medicine.

“Dr. Nelli”, as her young patients call her, is dedicated to helping each child find relief from their illness and to live happier, healthier, and more fulfilling lives. This is achieved through individualized treatment plans based entirely on what will work best for the particular child.  

Trained and experienced in both conventional and holistic medicine, Dr. Gluzman is passionate about helping each child regain and sustain optimal health through a customized blending of functional and integrative medicine.  Integrative medicine is predicated on the patient, the patient’s family, and the practitioner acting as partners in the healing process. All the factors that influence health, wellness, and disease are taken into consideration, including the mind, spirit, and community, as well as the body.


Dr. Gluzman has been a practicing pediatrician for over ten years. She received her medical degree from New York College of Osteopathic Medicine; completed her pediatric residency at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, NJ, and is a board certified fellow of the American Osteopathic Board of Pediatrics. Her clinical experience includes working in pediatric emergency and intensive care medicine; in-patient, and out-patient pediatric medicine; neonatal intensive care medicine; newborn and delivery room medicine; and conventional, holistic and integrative pediatric private practice. She is the sole NYC pediatrician to be a certified practitioner of the GAPS Protocol.

In addition to running her pediatric practice, Dr. Gluzman serves as a Clinical Preceptor to NY medical facilities where she provides education, guidance and hands-on learning experiences for medical students and resident physicians. She’s also a medical consultant for Google Search; a guest speaker for NBC and Buzzfeed, and the Founder of Bright Illusion Thinking, an educational company that composes medical content for pediatric board exam preparation material

On a more personal note, the shining star of her life is her daughter.
