About Us


Battery Park Pediatrics provides comprehensive pediatric health care from birth to age 21.

Our Mission

We believe that the goal of a pediatrician is to work with the parent and child to achieve the best health possible. We accomplish our goals through parental guidance, teaching of safe and healthy lifestyles, early detection of illnesses and thorough, prompt treatment when needed.

Primary care is provided for children in a warm, intimate atmosphere that facilitates getting to know each child and family personally and individually. We provide a full range of pediatric services including well child exams, sports physicals and acute illnesses.
