Choosing a pediatrician is an important and personal decision and we want you to feel at ease with the care you and your child will receive.

COVID vaccine for children 5 to 11.


The Pfizer COVID vaccine is now available for children 5 through 11 years old. We are not scheduling appointments at this time.


If you have the opportunity to obtain the vaccine for your child elsewhere we suggest you do so. 


2019 novel coronavirus and COVID-19


We understand this is a very stressful time and there is a lot of confusing information available regarding the 2019 novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, and the illness it causes, COVID-19.


Under the recommendations and directions of the CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the NYC Department of Health and the epidemiology and infectious disease teams at the Children’s Hospital of New York-Presbyterian, we have taken the following steps:


  • The office remains open for routine and sick visits. We are scheduling healthy children and sick children at different times and we are moving patients into the exam rooms as soon as we can. As per our usual routine, all exam tables and counters are being cleaned with a disinfectant after each patient.
  • Calls are being screened. Please let us know if your child or a member of the household is under quarantine, has had contact with a person with COVID-19 or has a fever, sore throat, cough, loss of taste/smell and/or gastrointestinal symptoms.
  • You may request a telemedicine visit. When you call for an appointment you may request a telemedicine visit. See our telehealth link above for more information.
  • Everyone--parents and children (over 2 years old)--must wear a mask while in the office. There are alcohol-based hand sanitizers at the front desk and through the office. All visitors should clean their hands when arriving at and when leaving the office.
  • Only one parent or guardian may accompany the child to their visit. Both parents may come in for the initial newborn visits.
  • We have removed the toys from the waiting room. We will give your child a small coloring book or activity pad, which you can take home.


Regarding SARS-CoV-2/Covid-19 testing:

• We are here to help you care for your child when they are ill. If during your child's sick vsit we determine that a Covid-19 test is appropriate we will do the test. Results of the PCR test come back in 2 to 7 days, depending on the laboratory's volume.

• We are doing SARS-CoV-2/Covid-19 PCR tests in asymptomatic children as requested for return to school.
