Our Team

The faculty of the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases consists of four full-time, board-certified physicians performing clinical care and consultations. The Division also includes a clinical trials team of faculty members, study coordinators, and study nurses devoted to investigating pediatric infectious diseases. Comprehensive care is provided through collaboration with the countless pediatric and surgical specialties available at Stony Brook Children’s. Close collaboration with the hospital’s pharmacy, including a pharmacist specializing in infectious diseases, is another hallmark of the Division. Faculty members also oversee the training of Pediatric Infectious Disease Fellows and General Pediatric Residents, who play a crucial role in patient care. In addition, our patients living with HIV benefit from designated Social Workers and Case Managers as part of our multidisciplinary approach to this disease.
