Why choose a Cohen Children's pediatrician?

For more than 35 years, the pediatricians of Cohen Children’s have provided family-oriented pediatric services and comprehensive well-care to children across Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties. We pride ourselves on getting to know all our patients and their families, allowing for individualized attention and personalized care. Our experienced, board-certified physicians and nurse practitioners work in association with the nationally recognized pediatric experts at Cohen Children’s Medical Center, one of the nation’s preeminent pediatric hospitals, to bring the most advanced and compassionate care to our community.

About us

At Cohen’s Children’s General Pediatrics at Islandia, our experienced staff—consisting of providers, nurses, and medical office workers—offers comprehensive medical care for infants, children, and adolescents. Our considerate staff works with your family from your first contact with the medical team to make every visit to our office a pleasant and encompassing experience.

All our doctors are certified by the American Board of Pediatrics. We follow the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines regarding vaccinations. Vaccinations are important for the safety of your child as well as the children they may come in contact with.

We are open seven days a week, with evening and weekend appointments available for well visits and same-day sick appointments. 

We make every effort to make sure you and your family are comfortable and informed about your child’s medical needs. Our providers feel that it is important for families to be involved in the care of their child in order to have a trusting relationship with their healthcare team, so we work hard to provide educational and knowledgeable information to our patients at every visit and encourage our patients to ask any questions they may have.

We have everything you need to be prepared for your visit, including downloadable forms and a list of what to bring with you.
