BCHP Specialty: Pediatric & Adult Pulmonology Allergy Immunology and Sleep Medicine
The Pediatric and Adult Pulmonology, Allergy, Immunology and Sleep Medicine Division is the largest in New York, and one of the largest such divisions in the nation.
Our main offices are at 19 Bradhurst Avenue, Hawthorne, NY, on the campus of the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center and New York Medical College. In addition to our main office in Hawthorne, NY, our physicians see patients at 11 locations throughout the Hudson Valley and Connecticut. Our convenient locations and free parking allows our patients hassle-free access to world-class treatment that’s close to home. Our physicians care for patients in a network of outreach offices throughout the region. All of our physicians are full-time faculty at New York Medical College and on the medical staff of the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital. We are dedicated to patient care, research and education.
Our pediatric pulmonologists, allergists and sleep specialists diagnose and care for more than 12,000 children each year with a wide variety of respiratory problems, including allergies, asthma, sleep problems and complex pulmonary disorders. We have more than 20 physicians in our practice and continue to grow. Our experienced team includes dedicated nurses, social workers, respiratory therapists and dietitians.
Our patients are at the heart of our practice. We strive to provide each of our patients and their families with personalized care and excellent customer service.
We understand the importance of receiving care from the same provider at each appointment, and strive to offer this type of individualized care for our patients. This means your child will see the same doctor in our practice for every visit whenever possible. We also work closely to coordinate care and share information with any other providers your child may see, including his or her primary care provider, to ensure your child receives the most appropriate care at all times.
