-- Company Launches Eighth Specialized Urgent Care Practice for Children and Young Adults --
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- PM Pediatrics, an award-winning provider of specialized urgent care for newborns through college, will open its newest practice today in the Cobble Hill section of Brooklyn, New York. The 6,055 square foot office located at 240 Atlantic Avenue, features a Coney Island theme, and marks the eighth PM Pediatrics site. Dr. Fidel Garcia will serve as Medical Director of the new Brooklyn location, overseeing all medical operations for the practice.
Each PM Pediatrics office is open Monday through Saturday, from Noon to Midnight, and on Sundays and Select Holidays from 10:00am to Midnight. PM Pediatrics has five additional sites in New York -- in Queens, Westchester and on Long Island. They also have two New Jersey locations, in Middlesex and Essex counties.
"We look forward to servicing the community with high quality urgent care tailored to the needs of children and young adults," said Dr. Jeffrey Schor, managing member of PM Pediatrics. "Dr. Garcia is a welcome addition to PM Pediatrics having spent many years as a fellowship-trained pediatric emergency physician. We are proud to have him at the helm of our much-anticipated Brooklyn opening."
Every state-of-the-art PM Pediatrics practice is led by Pediatric Emergency Specialists, including pediatric emergency physicians and board-certified pediatricians, 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 that are reviewed by a board-certified radiologist, and sent easily to a patient's primary care physician or orthopedist. Additionally, the practices feature a comprehensive on-site laboratory, which performs blood and urine tests and a variety of rapid tests for infectious diseases.
Unlike most traditional urgent care practices, PM Pediatrics specializes in treating children and young adults. The practice believes strongly in a child's medical home and does not offer wellness visits, physicals, school check-ups or immunizations. PM Pediatrics also takes special care to communicate directly with each patient's primary care provider the day of the patient's visit, ensuring timely follow-up and continuity of care. Each office has access to specialists such as plastic surgeons and 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 400,000 patient visits to date.
