A Move & A Merge!
As many of you know, the other practice physician at 196 Canal St has retired earlier this year, and Dr Wu has been looking for a physician to office share and cross cover. Enter Dr Chanel Li, who is the owner of Pure Pediatrics, which occupies a street-level, store front space with lots of room just around the corner (something all the more important especially during covid!… and flu, and RSV, and rhinovirus, and so on and on). In addition, Dr Li offers extensive office hours, which makes working parents' lives easier! So we're moving over to 60B Mott Street!
For some background, Dr Chanel Li graduated from Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine, and completed her residency in Maimonides Medical Center. Prior to launching Pure Pediatrics in October of 2021, she worked at GoHealth Urgent Care Center, where she honed her skills as a pediatrician during the worst of the covid-19 pandemic. She emigrated from Guangdong, China at age 13, and has three children.
The new office boasts 5 exam rooms (you can see one in the image above!), specialized equipment such as rapid PCR for Covid, RSV and flu, as well as hemoglobin/lead and strep tests. Dr Wu is really happy to add on more services for our patients, and am excited to work together with Dr Li. You can now book appointments online with Dr Li, as she is in-network with most of our patients' insurance! We will make sure to make this transition as seamless as possible.
