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 infections to include those due to methicillin resistant Staph aureus (MRSA).
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.
