Telemedicine With Our Doctors

As we all adapt pediatric practice in response to COVID-19, we, the providers at Pediatrics East of New York are committed to being here for our patients during this difficult time. We will be continuing to provide care to our patients while maximizing social distancing to protect our staff and families. We are still seeing patients in the office in limited numbers for well visits.

Telemedicine is Now Live

In addition, we are offering telemedicine (virtual visits via video or phone) to our established patients for non-emergency medical issues, developmental concern consults, and general pediatric related questions or concerns. This also includes medical services (diagnosis, treatment plan, prescription, etc) provided via phone calls after hours, and on weekends. Please call or email our office to arrange your visit:  212.879.7014 or kids@pedsoneast.com.

All of our doctors are participating in the telemedicine program now in place. We’ve made telemedicine simple and easy for you. You’ll see your doctor from anywhere, just click their personalized room link (like Doxy.me/pedseastyourdrsname) to join them for a video call. The image example below is what the links look like. There will be no need to download software or create an account. Just use your browser on a computer or device with a camera and microphone.
