LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., April 1, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- PM Pediatrics, an award-winning provider of specialized urgent care from cradle through college, will open its doors in Carle Place, NY on Thursday, April 17.

PM Pediatrics of Carle Place features the company's first-ever Wild West theme, and offers on-site x-ray and lab, 12 exam rooms and two procedure rooms. Dr. Elliott Friedman will serve as Medical Director, overseeing all medical operations for the practice. Dr. Friedman is board-certified in both Pediatrics and Pediatric Emergency Medicine, and has worked as an urgent care physician at PM Pediatrics in Syosset since 2007.
PM Pediatrics has the following 10 urgent care locations throughout the New York and New Jersey:
- Long Island: Syosset, Selden, North Babylon and Carle Place
- New York City: Bayside, Queens and Cobble Hill, Brooklyn
- Westchester: Mamaroneck

Each PM Pediatrics office is open Monday through Saturday, from Noon to Midnight, and on Sundays and select holidays from 10:00am to Midnight.
"Over the past several years, Dr. Friedman has made a huge impact on the patients and families he has served on Long Island, with his wealth of experience as a pediatric emergency physician and avid educator," said Dr. Jeffrey Schor, managing member of PM Pediatrics. "We are proud to have reached our tenth location milestone with the new Carle Place practice, and further our mission to provide unparalleled urgent care to children and young adults, everywhere."
Every state-of-the-art PM Pediatrics practice is staffed by Pediatric Emergency Specialists, including board-certified pediatricians and pediatric emergency physicians, who provide care and treatment for a broad array of illness and injuries including asthma, fever and other infections, dehydration, sprains and fractures, wounds requiring stitches, and much more. Each office has on-site digital x-ray which produces high resolution images read by a board-certified pediatric radiologist, and sent easily to a patient's primary care physician or orthopedist. Additionally, the practices feature a comprehensive laboratory on-site, which performs blood and urine tests and a variety of rapid tests for infectious diseases.
Unlike traditional urgent care practices, PM Pediatrics specializes in treating children and young adults. They believe strongly in a child's medical home and do not offer wellness visits, physicals, school check-ups or immunizations. PM Pediatrics takes special care to send each patient's medical record to their primary care provider the day of their visit, ensuring timely follow-up and continuity of care. Each location also has access to specialists such as plastic surgeons or orthopedists, as needed. All PM Pediatrics locations are uniquely themed and feature TVs in every exam room, creating a warm, welcoming environment for kids and adults alike. This model of care, comfort and convenience has been enthusiastically received with over 450,000 patient visits to date.
