Patients & Families

At Weill Cornell Medicine, families are our primary focus. Our team of experienced pediatric specialists strive to provide personalized, compassionate care for every child we treat and every family we meet. 

Family-Centered Care

The Weill Cornell Medicine Department of Pediatrics is committed to family-centered patient care. When families are involved in their children's healthcare, the results are clear: better health outcomes and greater patient satisfaction. Family-centered care is an approach that promotes the health and well-being of children and their families through a respectful family-professional partnership. We provide family-centered care at our medical practice and NewYork-Presbyterian’s affiliated Komansky Children’s Hospital through collaborative efforts between families, healthcare teams and administration. We strive to create open channels of communication between you and your child's healthcare team, improving support systems by supplying families with all of the information and guidance they need to care for their children with confidence.
