Primary Care and Pediatric Health

Ellis Pediatric Care is located at the Ellis Health Center, 624 McClellan Street, Schenectady. Our providers cares for infants, children and adolescents up to 18 years old.

Comprehensive Care

At Ellis Pediatric Care, we feel it’s important for a physician and parent to work together toward achieving a common goal - good health for your child today and tomorrow. Our board certified pediatricians lead a team of highly trained clinicians who specialize in caring for children. Our team provides care to get your child better when he or she is sick and provides routine check-ups, immunizations and healthy living education to keep him or her well. Plus our services go well beyond this traditional role.

We feel it is important to create a medical home where children are known by name and develop a long term relationship with their doctor. A medical home is the place to turn for any problem that impacts a child's health. If a child is sick, needs some medical advice, is having difficulties in school or there are concerns about growth and development or even their emotional health - the medical home is the first place to turn. We work directly with you to help you coordinate the multiple needs your child has in the community in order to ensure he or she receives comprehensive health care delivery.

Primary preventative care, hospital-based pediatric and neonatal care, chronic care of medical and mental health conditions, developmental screenings, coordination with schools and community and public health services that impact your child's well being are all essential components of the mission of Ellis Pediatric Care.

We care for patients from all over the Capital Region, including Albany, Ballston Spa, Burnt Hills, Clifton Park, Halfmoon, Round Lake, Cohoes, Colonie, Glenville, Latham, Mechanicville, Niskayuna, Rexford, Rotterdam, Schenectady and Scotia.
