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 full range of services, hours and staff to meet your needs. We are tireless advocates for patients emotional and physical well being and provide access to counselors and social workers on site as needed. In addition, we provide onsite allergy testing and comprehensive laboratory services, which means a shorter wait time for all lab results. Click here to see the all of the services we offer!

We have two convenient locations in Liverpool and Camillus. Our offices are clean, cheerful and brightly colored. To make office visits as comfortable and enjoyable as possible for children and parents, we provide covered walkways and entrances, heated floors, baby blankets in the examination rooms and purified central air throughout the building. Click here to visit our offices!

    - Om Saif, 2020
  • "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, 2020
  • "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."
    - Rosenda Mendoza, 2020
  • "My children saw an NP today named Lisa. She was absolutely fabulous with my children for their physicals. She was caring understanding and did her job perfectly! Along with the nurse who checked us in and gave my daughter a shot. She was amazing also."

Many changes for Summerwood.

As you all know, growing and moving forward in life requires changes. These past few years have been uniformly difficult in dealing with various pressures related to COVID, severe respiratory illnesses and shortages of staff and providers. Managing a very busy pediatric practice is no different. Sometimes these changes can be difficult but are deemed necessary for us to ensure the continued optimal care for  the families we serve.

After working for 15 years at our practice and having a career spanning 5 decades, it is very difficult for us to announce that Dr. Green will be retiring at the end of this month. We have enjoyed our time with Dr. Green during our many years together and she has been a reliable part of Summerwood for a long time. We cannot express enough gratitude for the care and love she has brought to our practice, the families, and especially for the children. If you want to share any well wishes, please send them to our office and we will be sure Dr. Green receives them.

With that, we also need to tell you of the difficulties we have been facing with the current building owners of Medical Center West and with finding sufficient medical staff and providers to maintain our services at our West location.  For those of you who go to our Camillus site, you may have noticed that the majority of the facility is empty and it now lacks the supportive services we need such as x ray, reference laboratory and MRI facility.  We have been at the Camillus site for about 25 years, during which time the building has exchanged ownership hands three times.  The current owners have been very difficult to work with and our related lease costs have become unaffordable.  As a result, we had to make the difficult choice to close our Camillus location at the end of January. With time, we hope to open a new location in the Camillus area as we understand the need for quality pediatric care in that area. We apologize for the inconvenience this will cause to some of you and hope that you will stand by us as we make these transitions.  Centralizing our services and staff at our main Liverpool office will undoubtedly increase our service efficiency and availability for your children’s needs.

We are excited to have you meet our new provider staff at your upcoming visits and know that we are still actively looking for well qualified providers to help us deliver quality and timely care of your children. Your children are our priority, and we thank you for your understanding and support as we move towards a future that looks a little different but will be just as reliable and comforting as you have come to expect from us.

Sincerely,

Dr. Dracker and the Staff of Summerwood Pediatrics
