Premier Pediatrics is taking the Covid-19 outbreak extremely seriously. We are putting in place protocols designed to keep our office as safe as possible.
Prior to each visit, each family will be asked a series of questions designed to stratify the risk of coronavirus exposure. If a family or patient needs urgent attention but screens positive, we will use telemedicine when appropriate. We also cannot perform testing for Coronavirus on-site.
All patients with non-urgent visits will be asked to reschedule the visit for a later date.
Our staff has been diligently cleaning the office, paying particular attention to door handles, counter surfaces, examination tables, as well as the waiting room and reception area throughout the day. We also have posted signage throughout the office.
We have created “Premier Covid-19 Bulletin”. We will update this bulletin as the situation changes. If there are urgent updates, we will send emails directly.
In an effort to limit traffic in the office, at this time we ask all patients to send forms via Klara or email. Forms will be returned via our patient portal. If you are not enrolled, the office will assist you over the phone.
We will not be accepting anyone in our office that does not have an appointment. There are absolutely NO walk-ins.
Families should try to gather information from our website before placing a call to the office, use Klara, our HIPAA compliant email system when possible, be flexible when we need to change an appointment, and limit after-hour calls to urgent concerns.
We understand that this is a difficult and anxious time but let’s work together and keep our practice and community healthy and safe. Here are some helpful tips to keep your family safe.
Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
Avoid close contact or sharing cups and utensils with anyone who is sick.
Cover your mouth with a tissue after you cough or sneeze and immediately discard.

I have 5 children. A tween and 4 kids under the age of 16 months. As you can imagine, we make a lot of trips to the doctor’s office. We are so grateful for premier pediatrics. They are a group of terrific doctors who work hard and handle their patients with personalized care. They also are super responsive, knowledgeable about all kid topics and always trying to educate me on what is the best path for our children. They have been a tremendous asset to our family and we want to express our appreciation for them. Couldn’t do it without you Premier!
We’ve been with the practice since our oldest child was a newborn (he’s 5 now), and I’ve found every pediatrician that we’ve seen there to be excellent. We now have a 18-month-old daughter who has been very well cared for by the doctors at PP, too. In fact, when she had a health scare last fall, our pediatrician called multiple times to check on her, and even answered questions I had via email over the weekend — while she was out of town. I’m so thankful we found PP!
Listening, communication, & knowledge is how I sum up Premier Pediatrics. They take the time to listen. They talk with you about all the stages of development. That time is somethings rarely seen in an New York City doctors office. They are amazingly knowledgeable, with years of training and practice and being in practice is key to their success.
Being a parent is challenging, especially in New York City, and I’m grateful to have Premier Pediatrics on my side. From tiny concerns to major health care decisions, I know I can always count on the Premier doctors for their expertise and guidance.
The doctors at Premier are always quick to respond to emergency after-hours calls and always make time for the last minute sick visit. It's a very rare day when we wait for an appointment and with all the personalized, one-on-one attention their doctors give, we always leave feeling as if our children are their most important patients. We could never imagine sending our little ones anywhere else.
To feel educated, protected and not like a failure of a mother when seeing your pediatrician is key to any relationship parents have with their kids doctors. This is exactly what Premier and their incredible team of doctors do every day. Our family is so lucky to have the Premier team in our corner.
