Entry is limited to essential guests.

Sick patients are directed to enter through the side door.

Advance and non-urgent appointments are rescheduled if Covid-19 symptoms are present among the patient or the accompanying adult.

100% of staff are vaccinated against Covid-19.

Refer to the Erie County DOH website to report a positive at-home test and to obtain/complete the Affirmation Documents (isolation or quarantine) as needed by your child's school or your employer for justification of absence.

The American Academy of Pediatrics and all our doctors recommend Covid-19 vaccinations for all age eligible children. You may call us to book an appointment for your child's vaccine.

Do not send your child to daycare, camp, team sports nor school when ill.

Welcome to Genesee-Transit Pediatrics

Transit Office

Our highly qualified, Board-Certified pediatricians are an integrated and highly regarded team dedicated to the care of infants, children and adolescents. Our high academic and educational standards, as well as our years of experience and a commitment to continual education, ensure that our entire staff remains current with the newest and most significant advances in the ever-changing world of pediatric medicine.

Genesee-Transit Pediatrics was established in 1999. Previously Genesee Pediatric Associates, we were one of the first pediatric group practices to provide care to children and young adults in Western, New York.

Our child doctors focus our efforts on providing the most comprehensive adolescent & pediatric care possible. As your family has grown, and their needs have changed, so have our services. Listening to our patients and their families has always been a priority. We know more than ever how important convenience has become in your selection of a pediatrician. With two locations, expanded office hours, and 24 hour “on call” services- our primary focus remains your children’s’ healthcare needs. We’re here to help you through your parenting journey. From prenatal & newborn care to vaccinations, we’ve got you covered. Your child is in good hands.

Genesee-Transit Pediatrics is Committed to Providing Continuity of Care to our Patients

Continuity of Care is an important goal in providing medical care, and we are taking steps toward improving our commitment to our patients. We are encouraging everyone to designate one of our doctors as their primary care physician (PCP). Whenever possible, appointments will be made with the primary care physician, particularly for healthy checkups and follow-up visits for chronic conditions. Sick visits will still be scheduled the same day with the doctor that is available. If your PCP is working at our other office, you may be offered the opportunity to see them at that office. We believe that continuity of care will improve the quality of care that your child receives.
