Children

What To Expect

Whether you’re a new parent or you have a growing teen, it is important to know what to expect from your local family physician. When you visit Pinewood Family Care Co. in Downtown Jersey City, a routine visit will include a thorough assessment of your child’s overall health and wellness. If you have an appointment because of a specific symptom our physicians make a diagnosis, then they will go over the treatment plan step by step.

About Sick Visits

At Pinewood Family Care Co. we treat kids of all ages who have a fever, cough, sore throat, congestion, hives or rashes, or minor physical injuries, among other ailments. Our Jersey City Pediatric office offers a variety of convenient tests, such as in-office urine tests as well as tests for strep throat and the flu. With our model of direct family care in New Jersey, Pinewood removes health insurance as the middleman from the equation, leading to less hassle and headaches, and more direct care for your child.

The Pinewood Difference

Instead of getting a health insurance company involved, families pay a monthly membership fee directly to the practice. As members of the Pinewood “Fam”, your child will enjoy benefits such as consistent access to their physician. You’ll also receive the email and phone number of your child’s physician for urgent concerns so you can avoid the emergency room whenever possible.  Members of Pinewood have extended appointment times with same-day or next-day appointment times available. This results in better patient-doctor communications and a higher level of care for your child.
