Pediatrics

As a parent, you want what’s best for your child, but when it comes treating to a serious injury or illness, knowing what that might be isn’t always clear cut. That’s why Goryeb Children’s Hospital now offers a Bioethics Consultation Service, which helps parents and guardians make difficult decisions about their child’s care. This can be especially useful when the available treatments are complex or there is a difference of medical opinion. Our team is available for group or individual meetings, where they will present the pros and cons of each option, so that patients and their families can make an informed choice. To schedule a consultation, please call 973-971-8929.
