PM Pediatrics Riverdale Location Now Open

PM Pediatrics Riverdale Location Now Open

The interior of the practice creates an enchanting environment so kids can feel more comfortable seeing the doctor.


PM Pediatrics opened its 19th and newest practice in Riverdale on Dec. 17 at The Shops on Broadway. The interior of the office occupies approximately 4,900 square feet and entices kids with an enchanted castle theme, colorful murals and designs, and TVs that feature kids’ programming in each room. PM Pediatrics also operates practices in Bayside, Bensonhurst, Cobble Hill, Forest Hills, Midwood, and Staten Island, and has 52 locations across the country.

“Every one of our offices is focused on the pediatric patient experience– from the murals on the walls depicting playful themes to the exam rooms outfitted with familiar kids’ characters,” said Steven Katz, co-founder of PM Pediatrics. “Our doctors and nurses provide top-quality care and ensure the comfort of every patient we see.”

PM Pediatrics was founded in 2005 and is the nation’s largest provider of pediatric urgent care. Emergency specialists treat newborns through college-aged kids for everything from asthma to infections, and dehydration to fractures–and wounds that need stitches. The Riverdale location will be open 365 days a year, from 12pm-12am Monday-Saturday and 10-12am on Sundays. Dr. Andre Persaud is the medical director in Riverdale.



“We are thrilled to expand our unique formula of specialized urgent care for children and young adults into more communities in New York,” said Dr. Jeffrey Schor, the other co-founder of PM Pediatrics. “The newly constructed center with ample and available parking will make visiting our office convenient for our patients and families."
