- New Monmouth County Location Marks Third New Jersey Practice -
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., July 2, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- PM Pediatrics, an award-winning provider of specialized pediatric urgent care, serving patients from cradle through college, will open its doors in Holmdel, NJ on Monday, July 14. The new location marks PM Pediatrics' third New Jersey practice, and 11th overall in the New York Metropolitan area. The 4,770 square foot office is located at 2107 Route 35 at Holmdel Towne Center. PM Pediatrics of Holmdel features a beach boardwalk theme, and offers on-site x-ray and lab, 10 exam rooms and two procedure rooms. Dr. Michael Bachman will serve as Medical Director, overseeing all medical operations for the practice. Dr. Bachman is board-certified in both Pediatrics and Pediatric Emergency Medicine, and also serves as the company's New Jersey Regional Medical Director.
The Holmdel location will open July 14 with abbreviated summer hours: weekdays from 4pm to Midnight, and on weekends from Noon to Midnight. Beginning this Fall, the practice will assume the company's regular operating hours: Monday through Saturday from Noon to Midnight, and Sundays and select holidays from 10:00am to Midnight.
"We are excited to open our first Monmouth County practice and get to know the families and primary care physicians in the Holmdel area," said Dr. Bachman. "PM Pediatrics provides an important alternative to the hospital ER for children and young adults. We look forward to bringing our trusted brand of specialized urgent care to a new part of New Jersey."
The company's newest office joins the following PM Pediatrics locations throughout New York and New Jersey:
PM Pediatrics is set to open its fourth New Jersey location in Union County at 355 Route 22 East in Springfield, this Fall, as well as three new practices in New York later this year: Yonkers, Forest Hills/Queens and Midwood/Brooklyn.
Each state-of-the-art office is staffed by Pediatric Emergency Specialists, including board-certified pediatric emergency physicians and pediatricians, who provide care and treatment for a broad array of illness and injuries including asthma, fever and other infections, dehydration, sprains and fractures, wounds requiring stitches, and much more. PM Pediatrics features on-site digital x-ray which produces high resolution images read by a board-certified pediatric radiologist, and sent easily to a patient's pediatrician or orthopedist. They also feature a comprehensive laboratory on-site, which performs blood and urine tests and a variety of rapid tests for infectious diseases.
Unlike traditional urgent care practices, PM Pediatrics treats children and young adults exclusively, with physicians, nurses, equipment and an office environment all tailored to provide the best possible care for pediatric patients. They believe strongly in a child's medical home and do not offer wellness visits, physicals, school check-ups or immunizations. PM Pediatrics takes special care to send each patient's medical record to their primary care provider the day of their visit, ensuring timely follow-up and continuity of care. Each location also has access to specialists such as plastic surgeons or orthopedists, as needed. All PM Pediatrics practices are uniquely themed and feature TVs in every exam room, creating a warm, welcoming setting for kids and adults alike. This model of care, comfort and convenience has been enthusiastically received with over 500,000 patient visits to date.
