About Us

Our Mission

  • 1.

    We strive to create a personalized experience for every patient, and work with both child and parent to create an approach that is right for your little one.

  • 2.

    Going to the doctor shouldn’t be stressful. We put you and your child at ease by creating a warm and open environment; visiting our office is a pleasant experience for all.

  • 3.

    We see medical care as a partnership between parent, child, and doctor, and do our best to accommodate all requests, approaches, concerns and considerations to build a healthy future generation.

  • 4.

    They say it takes a village to raise a child; as your neighborhood doctors and friends, we’re always there for you to come on in.

The Story

Part of the reason we started this practice is because we wanted to provide not only outstanding medical care but also excellent customer service to our families. One of the things that always stood out to us as doctors and caregivers is that patients often dread going to the doctor, and we knew that we could change that.

We want to make our practice feel like more than just a doctor’s office, but also a place that’s a comfortable, welcoming environment for your family, and a place that is part of the community at large. Going to the pediatrician should be comfy, familiar, and easy!

We practice the latest in modern, evidence-based medicine. We understand that there are many ways to raise and grow your family, and we want to support you to help you make good healthy choices from infancy through young adulthood.

As members of the Manhattan Valley community, we wanted to create a practice not only with a community feel but more importantly as community members. We wanted to restore the community doctor; someone you see around the neighborhood, but also someone you can talk to as a trusted friend.

So that’s our story. Come on in, grow with us, and tell us yours!
