Our Services


Prenatal Visits

Many families prefer to meet with us prior to their child’s birth.  Please call the office to set an appointment with one of our doctors so that we can answer any questions that you may have and introduce you to our practice.

Newborn Care

We strive to provide excellent care from our first visit with your child. We see newborns in the nursery at NYU Tisch Hospital on a daily basis. If you deliver at another hospital we ask that you call prior to discharge to set up a follow up appointment with us.  

Well Child Care

Well child appointments are central to our belief in practicing preventative medicine. Well visits allow us to track your child’s growth and development and to provide education and advice to allow your child to grow healthy and strong. We strive to form a medical home for your family to provide continuous comprehensive care.  

Immunizations

We strongly believe in the importance of vaccination in order to prevent deadly illnesses. We follow the recommended schedule put forth by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Sick Visits

We leave openings in our schedule to accommodate same day visits for acute illnesses.

Testimonials

Healthy kids equals happy parents. See what some of our families say about our care.


We have been coming to the East 38th Street practice for over 10 years. The doctors are very kind and patient. And my kids love their cool bandaids.

Connie Y. (Mother of 3)

Dr. Guidera has been our children’s pediatrician for the past 5 years and she has been the absolute best! Her patience, thoroughness and ability to put the children at ease has been such a stress reliever, especially when it comes to those dreaded shots! We love coming to see her and our experience is always a positive one.

Lila (Mother of 4)

Our children have been patients of Manhattan Queens Pediatrics since they were born. I am always impressed with the care and professionalism we receive at each and every visit. As a health care provider myself, my expectations for the level of care are very high. I could not recommend Dr. Guidera and her associates more. Your children will be in the best hands.

Ruby G. (Mother of 2)

We have taken our three children to the Manhattan office since our oldest child was born (she is now 8 years old!) They take their time with each appointment and are great with all our kids at every age; as a result, our kids are never afraid of going to the doctor and look forward to their appointments!
