We use state-of-the-art tools and techniques to diagnose and treat a full range of rheumatic conditions and we regularly participate in research studies that involve the development of innovative and cutting-edge approaches. We believe in educating our patients and their families, empowering them to participate in managing these conditions. Our special programs are:

Our Expertise 

Our team consists of nationally recognized specialists in autoimmune diseases who bring a wide variety of specialty training and areas of focus.  Our highly trained specialists are board-certified in pediatric rheumatology as well as in pediatrics or internal medicine. Because we have the resources and expertise to care for children with the most complex conditions, NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital is a referral center for other children’s hospitals. 

Patient Care 

Our doctors provide initial diagnoses, second opinions, autoimmunologic testing, genetic testing, as well as expert medical care. Depending on your child's condition, we may perform specialized procedures, laboratory testing, and consultation with specialists in other fields such as gastroenterology, pulmonology, hematology-oncology, bone marrow transplantation, and genetics. 

We see patients at multiple locations including Washington Heights; West 51st Street; West 86th Strett; Riverdale; East 72nd St.; and Staten Island.
