Announcement from Nitza Ellis, MD

July 28, 2020 1:08 pm Published by

Dear Patients and Patient Families:


After 35 years of practice at Delaware Pediatrics, I am announcing my retirement as of October 1, 2020. It has been a joy to participate in the care of your children and to be involved in some small measure in their lives. I will always treasure my interactions with you and your children, but the time has come for me to focus all my time and energy on the next chapter of my life.

I will miss you all and will miss seeing my patients grow and develop. Leaving my Delaware Pediatrics family will be wrenching as well. I am comforted by the knowledge that I leave the well-being of your children in very attentive, diligent, and competent hands.

I wish you all the best in your life’s journey.

Thank you for entrusting your childrens’ health care to me and for sharing them with me.

Most Sincerely,

Nitza Ellis, MD

Delaware Pediatrics is not currently offering any type of COVID-19 testing.

Here is what you should know:

To schedule a free test, please contact:

If the reason for testing is due to Governor Cuomo’s mandate for schools to conduct testing on 20% of the staff/students, you may not be eligible for the free test through Erie County. Please contact NYS Department of Health or other testing sites for information.

If you have any additional questions, please contact our office at 716-884-0230.
