What's New

What is new at North Arlington Pediatrics


North Arlington Pediatrics is taking the  necessary steps to provide a safe environment for you to continue the best care for your children during the Covid-19 pandemic. We have altered our hours and are scheduling visits as listed below. Between each patient's visit, we are continuing to clean and sanitize each room.

Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 7:30pm, we are continuing to see well visits, newborn weight checks, and lactation visits. We especially recommend that most well visit for children under 24 months of age continue at this time as it is important for infants and toddlers to receive their regular care and immunizations .

Monday through Friday from 1:00pm to 5:00 pm, we are scheduling sick visits for most patients; there are however, certain conditions where we may not recommend an office visit at this time. This will be determined by the triage nurses and doctors.  We are asking parents to call from their cars when they arrive at our office and the patient and parent are directed to the exam room where they will see our doctors. We are not using waiting rooms at this time.

In addition to the above, there are Telemedicine visits the doctors are conducting for certain medical situations. Again, this will determined by the triage nurses and doctors. You will need to be signed up for our Portal and the Healow application to use  this type of visit. Please contact our front desk staff to assist you in setting this up.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for any of your medical concerns.
