At Sunset Park Family Health Center at NYU Langone—Second Avenue, our doctors, nurse practitioners, and nurse midwives provide obstetric, gynecologic, and pediatric care.
We offer preconception and nutrition counseling as well as disease screening to put you on the road toward a healthy pregnancy. Free pregnancy testing is available seven days a week, and no appointment is necessary.
During pregnancy, we offer routine ultrasound exams and prenatal classes onsite. We provide genetic counseling and testing, including amniocentesis to test for conditions such as Down syndrome and spina bifida. Our maternal–fetal specialists provide advanced care if your pregnancy is considered high risk due to conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or preterm labor.
We use the CenteringPregnancy group model of prenatal care. Through shared medical appointments, we bring women together to share their experiences, learn from each other, and form a support network.
Our services go beyond routine pregnancy care. We also offer assistance with social support services and can connect you with resources to help with housing, food, and financial assistance. Our behavioral health counselors can help with any emotional or psychological challenges you are experiencing, including anxiety and postpartum depression.
Our women’s health program offers the full range of gynecological care, including the following:
We provide general checkups, immunizations, and health screenings for newborns, children, and youth up to age 21. We also provide hearing exams and screenings for tuberculosis, anemia, and lead exposure. We monitor your child’s development and behavior, providing guidance when necessary to make sure he or she is growing well.
If your child has a serious or chronic health problem, such as asthma, diabetes, or conditions that affect the heart, kidney, nervous system, blood, or lungs, we provide care and referral services to doctors who can provide specialized treatment.
For adolescents and teenagers, we offer health education on topics such as substance abuse, AIDS, and sexually transmitted infections. Psychosocial counseling is available. Reproductive health services, including access to birth control, are available for young adults.
We also provide walk-in urgent care for children who are primary care patients in our practice.
