We are a Pediatric Health Care Provider serving families of New York City since 1980.
Our practice is committed to delivering the best treatment possible for each of our patients. Manhattan is home to many young families whose own support systems are often far away. We are ready to serve as your 'extended family' and are here to support you in your entire to parenthood.
The ongoing care of your child is our primary purpose. One of our pediatricians is available at all times for emergency phone calls. Our office staff works with you to make sure that regular check-ups and all appropriate vaccinations and shots are scheduled.
Global Pediatrics' state-of-the-art facilities are located at 1559 York Avenue, on New York City's Upper East Side. Our offices have 12 exam rooms, 5 client consultation rooms, a large waiting area with televisions, a children's playroom, and ample space for strollers.
1. It's hard to believe, but camp season is right around the corner! We encourage our patients to beat the rush, and schedule their physicals and form submissions as soon as possible.
2. We know how important it is to obtain a timely response from a medical professional when our office is closed, and because of this we have decided to leave our previous after hours on-call Night Nurse system and begin a new collaboration with Fonemed, a trusted on-call professional nursing triage service. We are confident that our patients will receive the highest standard of care and a prompt response from these experienced and licensed registered nurses.
After our office closes if you have concerns about your child's health and need to contact a medical professional, the operator will pass along your message to a registered nurse who will contact you as soon as possible. If there are any concerns or questions that the nurse cannot answer, or if your child requires referral to the ER, the nurse will contact the Global Pediatrics doctor on call. Our goal is to have a timely, efficient response to all of our patients who require medical advice after hours. The next morning, the office will have a report on your call. Of course, if you are experiencing an urgent medical emergency, please dial 911 instead of going through our triaging system.
We know that our collaboration with Fonemed will continue to improve our 365 days-a-year services provided in our office, and we thank you so much for choosing our practice.
