A:
We guarantee that we will see your child for a same day sick appointment when they are ill. This appointment may be made online or by calling our office.
Q: What should I do in case of a major medical emergency?

A:
If your child has a major medical emergency, please call 911 or take him/her to the nearest emergency room. We are affiliated with Mount Sinai. Their emergency room is located on Madison Avenue at 100th Street.
