It’s always a good idea to get some solid advice by taking your children in for regular check-ups with a pediatrician. Weill Cornell’s pediatric program partners with the Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children’s Health to handle situations requiring more than a simple office visit. This premier New York children’s hospital provides world-class service to children in need.
