Welcome to Pediatric Care of the Hudson Valley, where children come first and we work with parents to provide exceptional care for kids in our community. We consider it both a great joy and responsibility to care for children, and we pride ourselves on providing compassionate, comprehensive services to children from birth through adolescence.
Your child’s health is as important to us as it is to you. We look forward to providing the excellent medical care your child deserves.
Our mission is to build life-long relationships with our patients by consistently providing you with compassion, excellence and value. To fulfill this mission, we are committed to:
- Improving the lives of the children we serve by providing quality care in a child-centered environment.
- Listening to our young patients and their families.
- Guiding our patients along a path of optimal health and wellness.
- Continually pursuing excellence at all levels through continuing education.
A Patient-Centered Medical Home is not a building, place or hospital. Rather, it is an approach to providing comprehensive healthcare. As your PCMH, we want to be the first place you think of for all of your child’s medical needs. We believe that the partnership between the patient, the patient’s family, and his/her primary care provider and care team is important. The care team, led by your primary care provider, is committed to providing the best healthcare services possible. Your child’s care team will work with you and any outside providers or facilities to coordinate care across all settings, including behavioral health. The team will offer appropriate medical advice, information, and self-management support based on current recommendations and evidence-based guidelines.

You and Your Child
- Are comfortable sharing concerns and questions with your pediatric team and other health care providers
- Provide a complete and accurate medical and family history to your pediatric team to ensure that the practice has all of the most important and relevant medical information to effectively care for your child
- Routinely communicate your child’s needs and family priorities to your pediatric team

We see you, the parent, as an important member of your child’s health care team. As your child matures, we hope he or she will become an increasingly active team member. Preparing your child to take the lead in caring for his or her own health is, ultimately, our team’s most important task.
We are excited you’ve chosen Pediatric Care of the Hudson Valley for your child’s medical care. Your comfort and convenience are our priority, and we strive to make every visit to our office a positive experience. We’d like to welcome you to our practice and help you get acquainted with our office.
Please arrive at your first visit a few minutes early to complete our registration forms. You may also download and print our New Patient Information Packet, fill out the forms ahead of time and bring them with you to the first appointment.
A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put your child at ease during future visits. We want your child to enjoy getting to know our doctors and staff, so we work hard to establish this bond during every appointment to our office. During your child’s first appointment, we will explain everything in detail and answer any questions you may have.
We look forward to meeting you and your child and providing the quality, comprehensive medical care you expect and deserve.
