Is your child sick, your husband's out of town and you don't want to drag all your kids to urgent care in the middle of the night? Did your child wake up with a sore throat and you're not sure if they can go to school? Is your regular pediatrician still in the city, but you don't want to travel all the way into Manhattan for a simple earache? Are you at work and your nanny is unable to drive your child to the doctor? Are you frustrated waiting until tomorrow morning to start antibiotics when your child is sick tonight? If so, now I will come to your house to diagnose and treat most of the common pediatric ailments, and provide on the spot first dose antibiotic treatment, when necessary.
Pediatrics10583 does not take the place of your regular pediatrician. It is intended for urgent issues only, either during the hours your regular pediatrician is not available, or if you are unable to get to their office. In fact, a note will be sent to your pediatricians office documenting the details of our visit.
Recognizing that I will be balancing this service with my duties as a mother of 3, I will do my best to provide service as quickly as possible, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, when available.
Visits between the hours of 6am-11pm start at $250.00. Visits between the hours of 11pm - 6am start at $350.00. Payment is due at the time of service by cash, check, or major credit card. A receipt will be provided that you can submit to your insurance company for out of network reimbursement.
