What We Offer
The major area insurers rank us as one of Western New York’s top pediatric practices for quality. Our doctors are Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatrics. They are highly skilled, experienced physicians practicing only pediatrics. Our Nurse Practitioners are certified in pediatric care. Breast feeding assistance is provided by our Nurse Practitioners, who are Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultants. We offer our patients warm and compassionate care in a technologically advanced, academic, and progressive medical practice.

Doctors and nurses are available by phone 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. With electronic medical records, your child’s health history is available at any of our three suburban locations. Same day sick appointments are available each day. An Early Morning Walk-In Service for established patients at the East Robinson Road office is open Monday through Friday from 7:15 AM to 8:00 AM. We also have sick appointments available on Saturdays at the East Robinson Road office from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Most childhood problems are better handled in your child’s “medical home”. You never have to seek care anywhere else. If you feel your child needs to be seen elsewhere, please contact our office first so we can direct you to the appropriate facility.
At each checkup we discuss the whole health of your child including nutrition, growth and development, safety, family and social interactions. We will work with families, teachers, school nurses, psychologists, and other providers to help identify and treat the multitude of challenges facing school age children.
New patients are always welcome. We accept most major insurances from the Western New York area. Click here for new patient registration forms. If you are interested in joining our practice please contact our new patient coordinator, Laura, at 716-691-3400 ext. 244.
Early Morning Walk-In Service
Our Early Morning Walk-In Service at the East Robinson Road office is open Monday through Friday from 7:15 AM to 8:00 AM. This service is for established patients only. There is no need to call and schedule an appointment, simply register at the front desk. Patients will be seen in order of arrival and urgency.
The Walk-In Service is for urgent, minor illnesses of short duration, including the following:
- Sore throat
- Cold symptoms
- Ear aches
- Urinary tract infections
- Minor injuries
We do not perform any physicals during the Walk-In Service. To ensure all patients are seen in a timely fashion, we do not address chronic, behavioral, developmental, complex, or long-term problems in the Walk-In Service. In these cases, you may be asked to schedule a regular sick visit. If your child is having a more complicated problem such as one of the following, please call us to schedule an appointment so that our providers can devote the proper amount of time and attention to your concerns:
- abdominal pain
- headache/head injury
- breathing concerns
- open wounds/suturing
- children with special healthcare needs
For added accessibility, our practice has office hours on Saturdays from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the East Robinson Road location for sick appointments. Any parents wishing to bring their sick child in on a Saturday can call 716-691-3400 for an appointment starting at 8am.
Connectivity / Reliability
Electronic medical records provide easy access to your child’s history and have proven to increase quality of care. Test results are readily available to your child’s provider. Prescriptions are sent electronically to the pharmacy of your choice. A patient portal is available for patients to communicate with the office and view or update medical information for each patient.
Family-Centered Medical Home
We value a partnership between your family and our medical care team. We’ll work with you to promote health and positive quality of life as your child grows and develops into an adult. Always ask to see your doctor for well checkups and for ill visits. The best care is given to a patient when there is an active relationship between the primary doctor and the family. We care about both the emotional and physical needs of our young patients, and their families.
