Newborn, Infant, and Adolescent Care for Buffalo, Lewiston & Surrounding Areas

Are you looking for infant care services in the Lewiston and Buffalo, NY areas? Look no further than Purely Pediatrics.

When it comes to infant, child, and adolescent care, it's important to seek out specialized medical professionals. Pediatricians specifically study the growth and development of humans at young ages. This knowledge allows us to monitor your child's progress from the beginning and give advice based on his or her specific stage of development. Because children often present with different symptoms than adults and are not as capable of expressing their body's feelings, it can take a specialist to recognize the signs and symptoms to look for in their youngest patients. 

 

Our dedicated team is ready to provide your infant, child, and adolescent with personalized pediatric medical services. 

Infant Care

Your baby's first year of life will include many doctor visits. Typically, the hospital or birth center where you deliver will notify us of the birth; we will then schedule a first visit for your newborn, usually within 3-5 days of coming home from the hospital. During the first office visit, we will perform a complete exam. We will also measure your infant's length, weight, and head circumference and observe his or her vision, hearing, and reflexes. We will want to know about your baby's eating and sleeping habits as well. This is a great time to ask any questions you might have about caring for your infant, as well as what to expect in the coming months. Our office provides comprehensive infant care for babies across the greater Buffalo, NY area; we are happy to address any questions or concerns you might have about the newest and littlest member of your family! 

Not Your Typical Children's Physician!

Services at Purely Pediatrics may be unlike many that you are familiar with in a typical pediatric office.  We do not bill your insurance plan for our comprehensive services.  The membership fee will cover any examinations, procedures, in house laboratory services, and virtual communication. You may use your insurance plan coverage for services such as ER visits, Urgent Care visits, imaging, laboratory services, medications, and specialist consultations. Purely Pediatrics simply does not rely on your insurance plan to cover or dictate our basic primary care services.

 Well and Sick Visits

We are able to care for your children when they are ill, but also would like to keep them healthy.  There will be regular wellness visits, and more frequent follow-ups as needed to keep your children happy and healthy. 

 

We can perform many basic in-house labs during your visit to our Buffalo, NY area office.  We may be able to perform blood draws for our members and specimens can be sent to Quest or Catholic Health Laboratories. You will have full access to our medical team by phone, text, or email at anytime.

 

For urgent matters after 4 pm, parents are encouraged to call or text the membership number to ensure fast consultation regarding your child. There will be no answering service- only personal access to the medical team who best knows you and your child.  Every membership family receives an exclusive membership number that provides direct access to our medical team.

 Access to Our Infant Care Specialists

 If you are expecting and would like to pre-register for infant care services prior to delivery, please complete the membership information on this website and we will be in touch with you to learn more about the newest addition to the family.  We will discuss your potential delivery date and discuss whether we will be a good fit for you and your little one.

 

Dr. Sue is a certified lactation counselor and will also provide newborn lactation consultations.  Infant care requires frequent checks and updates; care begins at birth, when the hospital or birth center where you deliver will alert us.

 

We will want to examine your baby as soon as possible; we will measure your baby's length, weight, and head circumference, observe their vision/hearing/reflexes, and answer any questions you might have. Our team is ready to help you navigate this new stage of life as confidently as possible.

Quality Time at Every Appointment

During your child's appointment, the focus will be on you and your child. There will be no rushing for any visit! Appointments will be scheduled for 30-60 minute sessions, depending on the reason for the visit. It is most important that every question is answered, and you are comfortable with the care of your child after you leave the office.

Hours

Same or next-day appointments will be our goal. Although we will be closed on weekends and holidays to spend time with our families, having remote access to our medical team will allow for continued continuity of care for your children at all times.  You will be quite surprised at how many times direct communication with us can prevent the need for a sick visit!
