Pediatric Infectious Disease

The Pediatric Infectious Disease (PID) service is comprised of specialists certified by the American Board of Pediatrics in both general pediatrics and pediatric infectious diseases. The service provides inpatient and outpatient consultation to children from birth to 21 years of age. Working closely with general pediatricians, intensivists, and other specialists, we assist in the diagnosis and management of all types of acute pediatric infections such as pneumonia, meningitis and soft tissue and bone infection, including those due to Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA). We also provide primary inpatient care for children and adolescents admitted to the PID Inpatient Service. Additionally, we provide consultative support to children with chronic infectious disease conditions such as HIV/AIDS, Cystic Fibrosis and Tuberculosis.

Through our outpatient clinics located in Paterson and Paramus we provide consultative support for children and adolescents with concerns related to issues such as travel medicine, foreign adoption, recurrent fevers, MRSA and Lyme disease. We provide teaching and education for physicians, students, residents and nurses, regarding important topics such as appropriate use of antibiotics, resistant infections and infection control.
