Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, we have temporarily adjusted our office hours. Washingtonville Pediatrics will be open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.. We will also be open Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon, and on Sundays for urgent sick appointments only.
Our goal is to create a health care facility that not only provides quality pediatric health care but also promotes a welcoming, relaxed environment where children and their parents are encouraged to learn and actively participate in preventive health care and treatment.
We want patients and parents alike to have a healthy, positive experience, and our state-of-the-art facility is designed to put children and their parents at ease. The waiting room features a 125-gallon fish tank to soothe and entertain and our walls are covered with a wonderful display of colorful murals. Each room has a video screen that plays educational videos.
We are all board-certified pediatricians with membership in the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). We offer a friendly staff, separate waiting rooms for sick and well patients, convenient hours, and easy parking. We are currently accepting new patients.
Please call our office to schedule an appointment. If you must cancel an appointment, please call our office as soon as possible and we will be happy to reschedule a more convenient time for you. If you miss an appointment, we will charge a $40 no-show fee.
One of our physicians is always on call for emergencies. Please call our office to be put in touch with the on-call physician.

Services We Provide
Attention-deficit/hyperactive disorder, or ADHD, is a common neurobehavioral developmental disorder that starts during childhood. In fact, about 8-10 percent of school age children have ADHD.
Your child may need to be evaluated for ADHD if he or she:
- has difficulty focusing or sustaining attention on one activity
- is restless and has difficulty sitting still
- blurts out answers before hearing the whole question
- is constantly interrupting others
- has problems with organization
- frequently loses things
- has difficulty waiting for his or her turn (such as in a line or in a conversation)
- has difficulty following instructions
It is absolutely true that most children exhibit some of these behaviors some of the time; ADHD should be considered when these symptoms are more pronounced than in the child’s peers and have occurred for at least several months. ADHD should also be considered if your child is not progressing as expected in school, especially if his or her teacher is reporting daydreaming, excessive talking, or difficulty getting work done.

Policies & Resources
CHADIS is an interactive online screening tool designed to provide your children with the best care possible. CHADIS does this by assisting in the early diagnosis of developmental, social, emotional, and behavioral concerns as well as a variety of health risks that can be difficult to see during a typical visit. All responses are completely confidential and cannot be viewed by anyone except your doctor.
CHADIS will save you time during the office visit. You can tell us about any problems or concerns you want to discuss, provide us with your child’s medical history and background, and report on the progress of your child’s development.
In order for us to provide you and your child with the best care possible, we need you to use CHADIS before each visit. We will review the results of the questionnaires before your visit and be able to discuss any concerns you may have.
