Each location of PM Pediatrics is decorated in a different theme. The Yonkers location is decorated in a jungle theme.

PM Pediatrics, a provider of pediatric urgent care services for newborn to college-age patients, opened its Yonkers office Sept. 15, 2014. The Yonkers location marks the second Westchester County office, and the 12th in the New York metro area.

“I live in Yonkers, and it is wonderful to be able to treat patients in my own community,” says Robert Best, M.D., medical director of the Yonkers location. “It is incredibly rewarding to hear positive feedback about our practice, and know that we are really making a difference in the lives of these children.”

Unlike other urgent care facilities, PM Pediatrics specializes in treating children and young adults for a variety of illnesses and injuries, including fever, asthma, infections, dehydration, fractures, and wounds requiring stitches, and has equipment and medical supplies designed specifically for children of all ages and sizes. All PM Pediatrics locations are equipped with a state-of-the-art digital X-ray machine and laboratory on-site.

In an effort to make the facility kid-friendly, the urgent care center is decorated in a jungle theme featuring hand-painted murals and decorated exam rooms in an open setting, and the waiting room and exam rooms have TVs. The staff of pediatric emergency physicians and pediatricians also tries to minimize pain as much as possible including using glue closures for wounds requiring stitches.

PM Pediatrics is open 365 days a year, Monday-Saturday from 12pm-12am and Sundays and select holidays from 10am-12am, and no appointment is necessary.
