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 six 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.

    - Om Saif, a month ago
  • "The staff, from front desk ladies, to nurses and of course providers, have cared for our special needs daughter since birth, she will soon be 16! They are exceptional with her & myself! I don't know what we are going to do when she turns 21, Dr. Dracker says he's going to keep her forever!"
    - Amy Weber, 4 months ago
  • "All three of my boys go here, as well as my step daughter. They are AMAZING! I get responses right away, they know my children the minute we walk in. They are quick but efficient, they listen to you. If you don't like one provider - definitely ask to see another. Sometimes as a parent you just don't click with someone. I have seen every provider there, including Dr. Draker and everyone has been amazing. They hold a flu clinic so you can just go in and get your flu shot for your kids without having to spend a bunch of time there."

A Letter from Dr. Dracker

Dear Parents,

I hate February!  Other than Valentines Day, and my granddaughter’s birthday, it is a cold, gray, boring month, made even more monotonous by our cumulative social limitations.  Fortunately, it is also a short month!  The highpoint of my day is when I get to see my patients, regardless of the reason.  I love hearing about how they are feeling, what they are doing, and sometimes hearing about and experiencing their relationships with their family members.  Lately, many of them are telling me how bored they are, and usually their parents express the same feelings.  Personally, I enjoy gardening (not outside right now) and doing research and I love “fixing” things at my house and the office.  In fact, doing repairs, regardless of their nature, brings me a great deal of satisfaction, probably because I can always try to correct things within my control.  I wish diseases and illnesses were as easy to deal with.  This year I started to do some hydroponic gardening and starting seedlings for my garden in the spring.  Every morning I check on them in my basement and critically examine the subtle changes which occur daily.

I am actually a biologist at heart, which is what I majored in as an undergraduate student at NYU.  Most of my family have different terms for me other than biologist, such as nerd, weird, odd, etc.  I shrug the comments off, because my fascinations make me happy and provide wonderful distractions during mid-winter drudgery.  This week, I have taken the opportunity to talk to my patients who I am seeing, to discuss their interests and if they have any hobbies or if there are things they would like to do.  I bring up ideas with them, especially if there are some activities that can also involve their siblings, parents, or grandparents.  Sometimes doing things that are different or involve learning and discovery are wonderful ways to create memories or develop new types of connections with each other.  Some of these “new” things to do can also be a lot of fun for everyone, and can bring a little sunshine into our mundane, shadowed lives.   

There are many crafts that kids can enjoy and if they are not sure what they would like to do, a visit to one of several craft stores around provides innumerable ideas.  Things like soap or candle making, woodwork, making clocks from parts than can be purchased, painting and drawing, model building, cooking and even indoor gardening are just a few suggestions that can brings smiles and satisfaction to everyone.  Please try to make the effort to engage your children in creativity and allow them to explore new ideas or activities.  Helping them to experience the concept of exploration and trying new things will help them in their futures in unimaginable ways.  Children need to learn about the concept of creative risk taking and wonderment, which you may find, reminds us all about the incredible potential of a child’s mind.

Sincerely, 

Dr. Dracker
