To our patients and parents, 

We are no longer giving out COVID-19 vaccines. Please check with your local pharmacy if you would like to receive a vaccine. 

Dr. Gunduz will be out of the office until May 23rd. Dr. Sung and Dr. Moerck are willing to assist you and your needs. 

If you have any billing inquiries, please call the front desk and ask for Brian. 

Masks are still required to be worn inside the practice, regardless of vaccination status as enforced by Governor Kathy Hochul in all healthcare facilities.  We also are still asking that patients please wait patiently in their cars and call the office upon arrival as we are limiting the use of our waiting room. Please do not walk into the office without calling the front desk to check in at 631-757-5604 first.  Calling ahead and making appointments is the best way to be seen by a doctor. Walk-in style sick appointments are sometimes difficult for the office manage due to the fact that we have newborn babies in the office and we do not want to cross contaminate. Keeping all of our patients as safe as possible has always been and will always be our goal. 

We now have at-home rapid COVID-19 tests in the office. The results are back within 15 minutes and the tests are a convenient option if you need a last-minute test. Note that not all offices, airlines, etc. accept the rapid tests so please check before taking one. There will be an additional $25 charge for each individual rapid COVID-19 antigen test performed. 

We still have COVID-19 PCR tests as well as Respiratory Viral Panels in the office as well. These tests are not rapid and the turnaround time for the results to come back to us is 2-3 days. 

We also wanted to mention is that if you need a referral sent through your insurance company in order to see a specialist, please give the office at least 48 hours notice as they do take roughly 24 hours to process and we would you hate for you to have to reschedule your appointment due to an unprocessed request. 

NOTE THE CHANGE IN OUR HOURS: On Mondays and Tuesdays, the office will open at 10:30AM instead of 9:00AM. Please call PM Pediatrics 631-499-5437 or go to the ER if there is a medical emergency. Please check back to the website for any additional updates. 

Another Note: We are already getting bookings for yearly well visits for the summer. Now is the most ideal time to call and make those appointments. Especially if you have a doctor preference (their hours are listed below).  As we get closer to the summer, the further down the road our availability will be. We will do our best to accomodate every appointment in a timely manner but please note that there are only so well visit slots available so again, please start scheduling those visits now. 

We hope you have a great summer!
