Appointments

Pediatric Associates of NYC offers a range of appointment times to accommodate your schedule. If you are running late or need to reschedule, please contact our office as soon as possible.

All office visits are by appointment only. We have extended office hours during the week for your convenience. On weekends, our Manhattan and Brooklyn offices are open for sick visit and newborn visits only. On holidays and on weekends during the summer, we are available to see sick patients and newborns at the Manhattan location.

We value your time and attempt to keep to our schedule but hospital responsibilities, emergencies, and phone calls can derail us. If your schedule will not allow you to wait, if available, we will offer you an appointment with one of our other pediatricians or reschedule the appointment. If it is necessary to bring one or more additional children to an appointment, please call so that we can determine if we are able to accommodate your request. Asking for additional children to be seen during a scheduled visit without having advised us ahead of time puts the physician in the uncomfortable position of either having to refuse or "run late".

We ask that you arrive at the office 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. l.

Please keep us informed of changes in your address, health insurance, or home, work or mobile phone numbers.

Telephone Calls

Routine questions, appointments, billing information, requests for referrals, and prescription renewals are all handled during regular office hours.  Please understand that patient care and emergencies take priority over non-urgent phone calls, but we will return your phone call as soon as possible.  We are available for emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In the presence of a true life-threatening emergency, call 911 to be brought to the nearest available hospital.

After-hours calls are made to the same office numbers but are handled by a voicemail answering service. Please listen to the outgoing message and provide the requested information in your message.

When possible, please call us prior to taking you child to an emergency room or urgent care center. We can then assess whether your child's problem could be better handled in our office.

Insurance and Billing

Please call  for information specific to your insurance company and plan. Learn about our accepted insurance carriers .

Payment Options

We accept checks or credit cards. We also offer a flexible payment plan. Please contact our Financial Coordinator for details. 

Referrals

We are proud of providing comprehensive care to our patients but there are times when it is necessary to refer to specialists for further evaluation and treatment. Many insurers, through their HMO products, create a "gatekeeper" model which requires the primary care physician to authorize referrals to specialists. We will provide referrals to physicians participating in your insurance plan after evaluating the clinical complaint. When a referral is required, we request at least 48 hours to process the request. We cannot give retroactive referrals for consultations not initially recommended by one of our pediatricians. Specialist Referral Request

Laboratory Tests

There are a number of laboratory tests ordered in conjunction with well child care, such as CBC's, lead screening, and urinalysis. In addition, hearing and vision screening are ordered at appropriate well visits or when clinically indicated. Most childhood illnesses can be diagnosed by a complete history and thorough physical examination, but occasionally laboratory tests are necessary. The laboratory testing for the well or sick patient may be performed in our office and delivered to a participating lab or ordered at a commercial laboratory, as dictated by the requirements of your health insurer.

Hassenfeld Children's Hospital at NYU Langone Health is our principal hospital affiliation.

Testimonials

  • "Dr. Prezioso is an excellent pediatrician. Has been terrific with my daughter from birth through adolescence for 15 years, and her advice to parents is reliable and practical."
  • "We just had another wonderful visit with Dr Natale in her new Long Island City location. I'm so grateful to you and your staff for helping me keep my four children healthy and happy ."
  • "Doctor Oppenheim is an amazing caring pediatrician with a lot of years of working with kids under her belt. I recommend ANY doctor affiliated with this office as each one you meet is as amazing and as qualified as the next. As a first time parent you need someone who’s gonna take the time out with you and go over your fears and stuff and not to judge you and that is exactly why we go to this pediatrician. It’s in a perfect area the office is clean and well lit and all the staff is friendly and they’re just there to help. That’s why we’ve come to love this place. Prospect Park East!"
  • "My family and I adore Dr. DiMaggio. She is attentive, friendly and easy going. Kind of like you have a friend who just happens to be a fabulous Dr. Everyone at Pediatric Associates is friendly and professional. She listened to and addressed all our first time parent woes and treated our little girl wonderfully. I absolutely recommend this practice and Dr. DiMaggio!"
  • "We have been seeing Dr. Stern since our daughter was born. Dr. Stern has always had the loveliest bedside manner and she is such a caring, compassionate and skilled doctor. Even though she always has a busy schedule, Dr. Stern always takes the time to answer any of our questions (no matter how trivial!) thoroughly. Each appointment is conducted efficiently, but we never feel rushed or ignored. We couldn't be happier with Dr. Stern or this practice!"
  • "We have been coming to Pediatric Associates for 5 + years and can't speak highly enough of the practice. We started in Manhattan and then moved to the Brooklyn office. All of the doctors have been equally exceptional, but our primary physician was Dr. Putter. As a health care provider myself I look for certain qualities in a provider and I am more then pleased by the quality care provided by Dr. Putter. The desk staff is both extremely helpful and courteous. We will miss this practice tremendously as we are moving away."
  • "Dr Horwitz is a wonderful doctor. Old school type of doctor that is hard to find these days. He really takes the time to explain everything. Whenever I had a question, he answered my calls shortly and he has a great sense of humor and disposition. Really put me at ease being a first time mom!"
  • "My three kids have gone here since my eldest, now 18, was a baby. While it's a busy practice, I've always felt that the doctors are responsive and professional. When in doubt, they err on the side of common sense vs. extra medicine and they have involved my kids in those decisions as they've gotten older."
  • "Wonderful care from exceptionally well trained physicians. Excellent referrals when necessary, to ENTs and other specialists. Dr Boehm was amazingly attentative over the holidays with my daughter’s pneumonia."
