All PPGNY health centers are ADA accessible. We accommodate patients who require assistance, including individuals with wheelchairs, for all appointment types. COVID-19 and other respiratory infections continue to pose a threat to all New Yorkers. Protecting our patients, visitors, and staff continues to be our priority. When you come in for an appointment or patient visit, please wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose and help us keep everyone safe. 

VISITORS IN THE HEALTH CENTER: No visitors or children are allowed to accompany patients in the health center. Support people or escorts are permitted only for patients physically, cognitively or psychiatrically unable to navigate their visits and understand their treatment alone or if their consent for services is required.

Childcare Policies

We’re unable to provide childcare at our health center. For safety reasons children need to be accompanied by an adult when they’re in the waiting room. Only infants can accompany you to the exam room. Please bring a friend or family member to be with your children if you don’t have childcare at home.
