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.

  • "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."

Dear Parents,

Considering the loosening of social distancing as directed by our County, we will be permitting two parents to come into the office with their child, particularly for children under one year of age. However, we still encourage having only one parent accompany the child whenever possible. We will continue to practice in a safe and prudent manner however, specifically we will still have you wait in your car until called and we will still require masks for parents and children over three years of age. As always, we also request that you utilize the hand sanitizer provided and that you wash your hands in the rooms. Thank you for helping us to keep all our patients and families safe. Your efforts and cooperation are greatly appreciated and continue to be appreciated.

Sincerely, Dr. Dracker

Flu Vaccination Clinics

Please be advised we have opened our Flu Clinics for the season. We will be performing vaccinations on Saturday mornings and Monday afternoons/early evenings. We are offering both the Flu injection and the Flu Mist (nasal)forms this year so let us know when scheduling which form you prefer. We are utilizing new protocols and procedures to endure patient safety, so we ask for your patience and understanding. Please arrive at the scheduled appointment time and not earlier. You may enter the building if you are her for Flu vaccine administration (no need to call and check-in over the phone). We do remind you that we are still requiring face masks upon entering. A receptionist will take the temperatures of all of those entering the building. If your child has a fever, they will need to reschedule. Additionally, if you or your child have been tested for COVID and are pending test results, or are showing COVID symptoms, we will need to reschedule. Thank you for helping us keep the children safe and healthy.

Dear Parents,


Being Thanksgiving week, we are challenged with regards to what we should be thankful for. It is easy to feel cynical or negative about our current lives and society, given the changes we have had to endure and evolving preventative health measures telling us to not gather with our families and friends. Children too have obviously been affected by their irregular school schedules, difficulties with remote learning and the lack of social interactions with their classmates and playmates. The pandemic and its associated unprecedented effects on the entire world have resulted in tremendous changes in public health measures and strained the health care systems of all countries. We have lost friends, colleagues and family members in an unpredictable manner due to a unique infection which has plagued all of us in one way or another. However, this unique coronavirus is not an “enemy” per se, nor does it consciously attack the weak and unsuspecting. It is an illness which is opportunistic in nature, easily spread to the world’s naïve population which has not had the benefit of prior immune experience or exposure which ultimately results in its spread and adverse effects. This virus is part of the world’s nature and biology, being no different than other pandemics which have afflicted humankind in the past. What is different at this juncture is our humanity, the commitment of our health care workers and the creativity and tireless efforts of the world’s scientific community in dealing with the urgent needs of our entire population.


We have been told how to limit the spread of the illness through obvious public health measures including masks, distancing and personal and environmental hygiene. The identification of the causative virus was incredibly rapid, not only in the virologic identification of the pathogen, but also the complete genetic composure of the virus itself. There have been innumerable therapeutic and preventative studies implemented by all nations, the data from which having been shared without prejudice. Despite the fact that it seems like it is taking forever to have a cure and a vaccine, we will have effective treatment and vaccine options in less than a year, which is unparalleled in medical history.


I would like to suggest that this Thanksgiving is more meaningful and significant than any we have previously celebrated since its inception in 1621. The “harvest” we can now celebrate can be that of love and caring for each other, and recognition that our societal harvest is that of measures to specifically eradicate a disease which is a product of our world’s nature. Now more than ever we need to continue to care for our families and children and to appreciate the efforts each of us can make for the benefit of humanity.


Have a Very Happy Thanksgiving


Sincerely,
Dr. Dracker
