Meet Us

All our physicians are board-certified pediatricians who specialize in the care of children from birth through young adulthood. Our doctors are members of the voluntary faculty at New York Presbyterian Hospital - Weill Cornell Medical Center. Our close affiliation with New York Hospital and the medical center allows us to keep up to date with the latest advances in pediatric medicine and provides us with full access to its emergency room, specialists and intensive care units.

Our Office

Our three physicians administer all of the medical care in our practice. A registered nurse is on staff to assist the doctors and is available to answer many routine questions. We also have a receptionist, medical assistant and office manager available to assist you.

All the doctors work collaboratively and discuss any issues that arise with our patients. We find having another professional point of view at times is helpful. We enjoy being a small group of three doctors because we appreciate the importance of providing a individualized approach in caring for your child. We believe in tailoring our care for your child based on what we learn from you, incorporating your parenting style, career plans and family history into a personalized treatment plan. We value the ability to provide thorough care in a relaxed environment.

We do not participate with any insurance companies, payment is due at the time of service.

Philosophy and Goals

It is our aim to create an inviting and compassionate environment for children, parents and caregivers. We strive to provide individualized, comprehensive, and thoughtful medical care to families from birth to adolescence. We feel it is a priority to provide parental guidance, support and teaching in order to enable parents to feel they are confident and independent caregivers. Most importantly, we pride ourselves on getting to know each of our patients very well and are honored to serve as partners with each family in fostering the health of all the children under our care.
