Denise Wolken MD Pediatrics offers a full array of services to help your child maintain good health.
- Well-Child Care Exams
Routine well child check visits are important to track your child's growth and development. Immunizations have been one of the single greatest advances in preventative medicine and an essential part of well-child care. At Denise Wolken MD Pediatrics, we follow the immunization guidelines recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). For descriptions of these vaccines and the diseases they protect against, please visit the AAP's Immunization page.
- Parents often have questions about which immunizations they can expect at their child's annual physical. Click on the correct link below if you would like to review this information before your visit.

- Physical Exam Forms
We will provide each patient a generic NY State Physical Form for pre-K-12th grade at the end of their yearly physical. This form is good for one year from the date of the exam. Please hold onto a copy of this form for when it is requested for school, sports or camp
- Sick Child Diagnosis and Treatment
At Denise Wolken MD Pediatrics, we try hard to provide same day appointments for your sick or injured child. Please call the office at 315-991-4180 during business hours for an appointment. Consultation for medical or behavioral problems that are longstanding (greater than 2 weeks) should be scheduled in advance.
- Medical Emergency and After Hours Emergencies
If your child is ever in a life threatening emergency situation, do not call my office or after hours answering service; instead call 911, and have the ambulance take your child to Upstate (University) Hospital Emergency Department in Syracuse.
For any medical emergency when our office is closed, your child's illness or injury is best managed by Upstate Golisano Children's After Hours Care at Community General Campus or the Pediatric Emergency Deparment of University Hospital at Upstate. These facilities are staffed by emergency physicians trained in Pediatrics.
- Hospital Care
Our primary hospital affiliations are with Crouse Hospital, Golisano Children's Hospital at Upstate Medical University, and St. Joseph's Hospital Health Center in Syracuse, NY. Dr. Wolken attends her newborns at Crouse Hospital. Her new babies born at St Joseph's Hospital Health Center and Community General Hospital are seen by the staff neonatologists while in the hospital and referred back to our care upon discharge. Dr. Wolken holds a clinical faculty appointment at Golisano Children's Hospital at Upstate. If your child should require an overnight stay at this state-of-the-art, high quality facility, you will be cared for by their team of Pediatric Hospitalists.
- If your child ingested a substance that you are concerned might be toxic or poisonous, please contact the Poison Control Center at 800-222-1222 immediately
