Pediatrics and Whole You Care

At ACPNY, we take a “whole you” care approach to treating your kids. Most of our providers have been practicing for over a decade, bringing a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the care they offer patients. We are committed to making sure your child develops healthy habits and is up to date on immunizations to lower the risk of childhood diseases. Plus, our pediatricians learn about the uniqueness of each family’s structure and dynamics, and will take these into account when developing a care plan for your child.

 

Here When You Need Us

In addition, we offer 24/7 phone access to pediatric advice through the University Hospitals Rainbow Advice Center, to make sure you can always reach someone to discuss your child’s health. Our practice also offers the myACPNY app, giving you immediate access to your child’s vaccine records, lab and x-ray results, and helpful educational resources.

 

Care for New and Expectant Mothers

ACPNY pediatricians also collaborate with our women’s health department on meeting with pregnant mothers seeking pediatric care within our practice. We even offer pre-natal interviews to establish lines of communication and answer your questions about what to expect. We know that as a new or expecting parent, you may feel anxious about the health of your newborn, but you can rest assured knowing you’ll have access to a team of knowledgeable, caring providers.
