I am an expecting parent and would like to learn more about the practice. Can I meet the pediatrician before my delivery?
Congratulations! We offer a prenatal consultation to expecting parents.  This is the best way to meet the pediatrician prior to delivering.  Our consultation is a one-on-one session between patient and doctor to inform you on what to expect and to answer any questions you may have.  This can vary from 30-45 minutes, depending on your questions.  Please call us at 212-496-5437 for further information and to schedule this appointment.

How do I get my child's forms completed?
