At Metropolitan Pediatrics,

We Care For Your Child

Text Box: Welcome

Metropolitan Pediatric Group offers the finest pediatric care, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year.  We will always be there for you 
and your family.

With two office locations in Bergen County, Metropolitan Pediatrics is easily 
accessible to the greater New York-New Jersey metropolitan area.  We have 
eight board-certified doctors on staff and experienced nurses to assist you.
When you call during office hours, you will always speak with one of our office staff, never voice mail.  When your child is sick, call in the morning, and you will have an appointment that same day.  Evening hours are available for your convenience.  And if there is an emergency at night or on a weekend, one of our doctors is always on call.

We have been practicing in Teaneck since 1977, and in Closter since 1992.  Many moms and dads who were our patients as children are now coming to us with new families of their own.

Our goal at MPG is to give your child the best general and specialized 
medical care available.  Our doctors trained at some of the finest medical schools and hospitals in the country.  When a specialist is needed, we refer to the most qualified experts in the New York City area, while we continue to coordinate your child’s care.
