We at Westside Pediatrics remain committed to providing you with the highest level of care. Through compassion, communication, and clinical excellence, we continue to build and maintain trusted partnerships with our patients and their families. The Covid 19 pandemic has altered our lives in so many ways. This includes significant challenges for small businesses. Pediatric practices have not been spared from economic strain. Westside Pediatrics is an independent practice that accepts most insurance plans. We respect that your family's health insurance comes at significant expense. We are strongly committed to our practice model, as we feel it remains the best way for us to provide accessible, outstanding care for your children.

Based on the economic realities of current times, our strong desire to maintain our valued model, and the financial constraints of practicing in New York City, as of May 2023 we will require the payment of an annual fee.

The Annual Practice Fee (APF) will be $350 per patient, and will be due annually in the month of May. New families who join our practice throughout the year will be prorated accordingly. Please click here to pay your APF.

If you feel this fee represents an undue financial burden for your family, please contact our office administrator at

We are honored and thankful for your continued confidence in Westside Pediatrics. This change in financial policy will enable us to continue to provide the highest quality of personalized care and accessibility. The information sheet provides further details regarding our Annual Practice Fee.
