Overview Keeping children healthy is the primary goal of Stony Brook Children's pediatric primary care program. Our general pediatricians provide comprehensive primary care, including routine well and sick care for children from birth through age 21, at seven Suffolk County locations. Our Patchogue and Islip offices also are staffed by physicians who can provide care for the whole family, including adults. Evening and weekend hours are available at all our sites.
Our Team Unlike many university-based primary care programs, Stony Brook Children's dedicates two or three full-time staff physicians to a single location, rather than rotating them among multiple offices. This helps promote long-term patient and family relationships with many patients followed from infancy to adulthood. All our pediatricians are board certified, and serve as educators in our School of Medicine, teaching the next generation of physicians as medical students, residents, and fellows.

Research and Education In addition to their dedication to clinical care, Stony Brook pediatricians are committed to training and teaching the next generation of leaders in pediatrics. Each of our physicians also serves as a member of the faculty of the Stony Brook University School of Medicine. Under staff supervision, medical residents who wish to specialize in pediatrics may polish their clinical, psychosocial, and community leadership skills in our Continuity Clinics (in the ambulatory clinics), as well as within satellite locations.
