The Bay Parkway Multi-Specialty Pediatric Center provides quality care for children, with many specialties conveniently located under one roof. The center is designed to be child-friendly and welcoming to young patients.
“Our goal is to accommodate children and their families in a comfortable, supportive environment to relieve anxiety and optimize healing,” said Dr. Laraque during the ribbon cutting event. “The open, bright and airy offices in this new location have a playful aquatic theme that mimics the aquariums found at the Maimonides Infants & Children’s Hospital.”

He thanked everyone for their help and participation in making the opening of the Pediatric Center so successful.
