We encourage you to sign up for our Patient Portal! With the portal you can:

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.
