Over forty years ago Glens Falls Pediatric Consultants was established by Guy Lehine, MD; since that time our practice has grown abundantly. With a growing practice and changes in healthcare, come additional responsibilities and challenges that have made it difficult to balance the needs of our patients in both our office and the hospital setting. To provide the quality office care you expect, we have found it necessary to evolve with these changes and will no longer provide daily pediatric inpatient services at Glens Falls or Saratoga Hospital.
If you are expecting a baby and deliver at either Glens Falls or Saratoga Hospital there will be a pediatric hospitalist available to care for your newborn. Following discharge please call our office and we will see you and your child 1-3 days later. The same will be true if your child is admitted to the pediatric floor. You may have the opportunity to see one of our physicians as Dr. Kamal, Dr. Wright and Dr. James are assisting in the pediatric inpatient coverage in both hospitals.
It is becoming a standard in the national healthcare system that our hospitals are staffing with pediatric hospitalists. Please understand your child will be treated by a physician who is a specialist in hospital care. During a hospital visit our pediatricians will be available 24/7 to consult with the pediatric hospitalists to ensure quality care for our patients. Upon discharge from the hospital, our healthcare providers will see your child in our office.
We have been in the community for over 40 years providing quality health care to our pediatric patients. Our plan is to continue to see patients in our office and coordinate quality care with the pediatric hospitalists at both Glens Falls and SaratogaHospital should your child need to be admitted.
