Welcome to Our Practice
Summerwood Pediatrics is a well established, progressive office. We are a primary care practice caring for children from birth to 22 years of age. Our team of board-certified physicians, nationally certified nurse practitioners and NYS licensed nurses provide cutting-edge health care to patients in a friendly, welcoming environment.
We believe that assisting parents in being well informed and confident as caregivers for your children, is critical to a child’s health and well being. In 2012 Summerwood Pediatrics became the first local pediatric practice in the Syracuse area to receive Medical Home Level 3 certification. As a certified Medical Home, we strive to provide care that is of the highest quality, delivered in a manner that is both timely and convenient. Using the family-centered model developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, we try to coordinate ALL care, both medical and non medical for our patients and families.
In support of this goal we are open seven days a week, including evening and weekend hours. We offer a wide range of patient services including onsite allergy testing and comprehensive laboratory services, which means a shorter wait time for all lab results.
We are tireless advocates for patients emotional and physical well being and provide access to counselors and social workers on site as needed.

We are entering our second week of changes at our practice so that we can best maintain the care of your children and families. I would first like to thank all of you for cooperating with the modifications in order to ensure the safety and well being of your children and our staff. Starting this week, we will be open from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM and we will still have Saturday hours from 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM.
Please keep checking our website and Facebook page for updated information regarding our office and COVID-19, as well as useful advice and guidance to assist you for caring for your family. We will continue to provide helpful internet links which we think are helpful and entertaining for all of you.
I encourage you to sign up to our portal if you have not yet done so, which is a very effective means of communicating with us whenever you have a need or questions. Last week we also instituted “Telemedicine Visits” which are available for those issues that do not require a hands-on exam. We can schedule these visits with you and a provider and please let us know if you are interested.
I have been very impressed with the commitment I have witnessed from ALL of the teachers in our area and I would like to encourage you to send them a note of thanks for their continued efforts on behalf of your children.
The changes in our daily routines provides us with an opportunity to spend more time with our families and to improve our communication and connections with each other. Even daily meals at home have become a new priority, one which we can utilize the opportunity to have all family members to assist with meal preparation, clean-up (we all hate that part) and a chance for us to eat together! I encourage you to cherish and take advantage of these opportunities as much as you can. I believe that when this difficult period is over, we may find that our “connectedness” and relationships are improved and take on new importance.
Thank you very much for your help and assistance with our ability to provide care for your family and please let me know if you have any advice or recommendations to improve our services to you.
