PM PEDIATRICS OPENS ITS DOORS IN PARAMUS ON MARCH 23, MARKING 15TH LOCATION FOR LEADING PEDIATRIC URGENT CARE PROVIDER
LAKE SUCCESS, NY – March 11, 2015 – PM Pediatrics, one of the nation’s largest providers of specialized pediatric urgent care, serving patients from cradle through college, will open its doors in Paramus, NJ on Monday, March 23. The new PM Pediatrics location marks the fifth practice in New Jersey, joining Livingston, North Brunswick, Springfield and Holmdel, and the 15th overall in the New York Metropolitan area. The 5,652 square foot beach boardwalk-themed office is located at 160 Route 17 North, just north of the Garden State Plaza mall in Paramus. Dr. Nikhil Shah will serve as Medical Director, overseeing all medical operations for the practice. Dr. Shah is board-certified in both Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics.
PM Pediatrics of Paramus will be open 365 days a year, and feature onsite digital x-ray and lab, 12 exam rooms, and two procedure rooms. The operating hours will be Monday through Saturday from Noon to Midnight, and Sundays and select holidays from 10:00am to Midnight.
“We are excited to open in Paramus and serve the families in and around one of the largest boroughs in Bergen County,” said Dr. Michael Bachman, New Jersey Regional Medical Director for PM Pediatrics. “As a respected urgent care physician, Dr. Shah has already made an impact serving patients at our other New Jersey practices. We look forward to watching him lead our PM Pediatrics team in Paramus.”
Unlike traditional urgent care practices, PM Pediatrics treats children and young adults exclusively, with physicians, nurses, equipment and an office environment all tailored to provide the best possible care for pediatric patients. Staffed by Pediatric Emergency Specialists, including board-certified pediatric emergency physicians and pediatricians, they provide care and treatment for a broad array of illness and injuries including asthma, fever and other infections, dehydration, sprains and fractures, wounds requiring stitches, and much more. All locations feature on-site digital x-ray which produces high resolution images read by a board-certified pediatric radiologist, and a comprehensive lab, which performs blood and urine tests and a variety of rapid tests for infectious diseases.
PM Pediatrics believes strongly in a child’s medical home and does not offer wellness visits, physicals, school check-ups or immunizations. They take special care to send each patient’s medical record to their primary care provider the day of their visit, ensuring timely follow-up and continuity of care. Each location also has access to specialists such as plastic surgeons or orthopedists, as needed. All PM Pediatrics practices are uniquely themed and feature TVs in every exam room, creating a warm, welcoming setting for kids and adults alike. This model of care, comfort and convenience has been enthusiastically received with over 625,000 patient visits to date.
