Primary Care and Pediatric Health

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


Ellis Pediatrics is nationally recognized as a Patient-Centered Medical Home practice for the high quality, patient-focused, coordinated care they provide. Our providers and office adhere to evidence-based quality standards in alignment with national programs such as the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and the U.S. Preventative Task Force. This ensures our patients are provided with the most comprehensive and advanced care available. 


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.

Our Services Include:

  • Regular check-ups/physicals
  • Sick visits
  • Immunizations
  • Education (diet, exercise, smoking cessation)
  • Diagnosis & treatment of illnesses and diseases
  • Developmental Screenings
  • Coordination with schools, community, and public health services
  • Social Work Services
  • Food Pharmacy
  • Connections to community-based support through Unite Us
  • In person or video appointments
