Frequently Ask Questions

  • For newborns, the first appointment should be 3 to 5 days after birth. For older kids, we’ll need medical records before scheduling a well visit. As soon as you register with us online, you can call us to schedule an appointment.

  • We encourage you to see the same doctor or nurse practitioner for well visits to develop a personal relationship. All providers share similar approaches and styles, always consistent with the philosophy of Tribeca Pediatrics.

  • Twenty minutes on average. However, the doctor will not leave the room until all your questions have been answered, and you feel comfortable with the guidance provided.

  • We are constantly monitoring wait time to keep it under twenty minutes.

  • Routine or “well” visits are to examine your child and monitor growth. A large part of the routine check-ups are about guidance. We begin with getting breastfeeding off to a smooth start. We then focus on strategies for raising a good sleeper. Parents love the fact that most of the babies in our practice sleep through the night by 2-3 months of age. As your child grows, we will also guide you on nutrition as well as emotional and cognitive development. Before each visit you will receive an outline of what to expect so that you can be better prepared.

  • We follow the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) schedule and all our vaccines are Thimerosal free. Immunizations are administered at the end of appointments, after a discussion of the benefits and possible side-effects.

  • Register yourself and your child using our Patient Portal. If you are transferring from a different practice please also fax over our Medical Release Form to your previous pediatrician.

  • We accommodate same-day sick visits.

  • Parents in our practice highly appreciate the convenience of having on-the-spot support in emergency situations. You can directly reach a doctor or a nurse practitioner at any time of the day, night or weekend. In the rare case that your child needs to be directed to the emergency room, your doctor will coordinate the care with the emergency room physicians.

  • Call the office to get a phone appointment for later in the day. A doctor or a nurse will call you back at a specified time to discuss your concerns. You can also send us an email with your questions and a provider will get back to you.

  • We fully support breastfeeding and will provide you with assistance and advice. And while the majority of moms in our practice do breastfeed, we will respect your choice if you decide to use formula, and we’ll provide you with any guidance and advice you may need.

  • We are affiliated with New York Presbyterian Hospital-Cornell, which has one of the most prestigious pediatric centers in the country.
