Western New York Pediatrics is your child’s medical home.
The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a health care model where patient treatment is coordinated through a patient’s primary care physician to ensure patients receive the necessary care when and where they need it, in a manner they can understand. We work with area physicians and specialists to help maximize patient care and minimize duplication of services.
We ask you to contact our office before going to an ER or a specialist so we can best coordinate care for your child.
We are a NYS Certified Breastfeeding Friendly Practice! We encourage all new breastfeeding mothers, as well as any mother having issues with nursing, to schedule a lactation visit with one of our certified lactations consultants or counselors. Whether you child is 2 days or 6 months, we are here to help! Please visit our Facebook and Twitter (@wnypediatrics) pages for blogs and updates on lactation activities.
