About us

About Us

Our mission is to provide evidence based, comprehensive medical care to children from birth through adolescence. Our role, in conjunction with parents, is that all children be nurtured in the best possible way. We firmly believe that preventive medicine is essential to wellness, including immunizations. When children are sick, we take care to determine the best course of treatment with conservative, proven methods.

We are affiliated with NYU Langone Medical Center.

About Us

Our group is made of four pediatricians who rotate through two offices, one in Manhattan and the other in Jackson Heights, Queens. From a prenatal consultation, to newborn care in the hospital and from infancy to adolescence, we are firmly committed to deliver the most comprehensive and up to date medical service. We try to provide a generous schedule to address the medical and the personal-social issues that are intertwined with the family unit.

The most singular aspect of pediatric care is that it deals mostly with the future. Our role in conjunction with parents, is that all positive potentials be nurtured in the best possible way. We firmly believe that preventive medicine is a first of many goods, and immunizations are among the most important contributions of science. We have the use of antibiotics, which are formidable when treating infections, but we are conservative in their use. The same goes with any other treatment, where available evidence is not supportive.

We are affiliated with NYU Langone Medical Center, and we have a large network of physicians which allows us to provide a wide range of referrals within our network.
