Preparing For Your Child's Visit

To facilitate the check-in process during your child's visit, we have posted important forms and information for you to read, complete and return to the physician's office prior to your arrival. Please click on the forms icon below to download the forms and questionnaires and email them to or fax to 646-962-0265 at least 72 hours before your appointment.

What to Expect

As an academic institution, we are dedicated to training future physicians. At most of your visits, you will find physicians-in-training as your first point of contact. They may be medical students, pediatricians who are completing residency, or endocrinology fellows who have completed a pediatric residency. They are always under the direct supervision of your primary provider, who will be present during all visits.

At all visits, a comprehensive history and examination will be performed. Because much of what we do is ingrained in growth and development, examinations often include staging pubertal development. It may help an older child, or a child who is anxious, to know that we will be examining their entire bodies (their pediatricians likely are, as well).

On occasion, blood tests, x-rays, ultrasounds or MRIs will be required for further evaluation. We offer same-day, on-site phlebotomy and simple radiology studies. However, some tests require specific timing (i.e. early morning) and others require scheduling a radiology appointment, and we may need to schedule your child's testing for a future date under these circumstances.
