Pediatric Sub-Specialist/Consultant Office Appointments


Outpatient appointments for most of our pediatric sub-specialists can be made at this one number; otherwise, our operators will transfer your call to the appropriate office.  From 5pm until 9am on weekdays, and on weekends, an answering service will take your message.  We will return your call the next business day.

For urgent pediatric sub-specialist consultations, please call the Downstate paging operator (718)-270-2121. Ask to page the physician on-call for that sub-specialty
