Dear Parents & Colleagues:

I am writing to inform you that as of November 2011, I will be returning to practice on a limited basis. I will begin by seeing patients one day a week, with office hours alternating weekly between Northport and NYC. You can call 631-262-8505 if you are interested in
making an appointment. The staff will give first preference to families that have already been seen in the practice. Please be patient with the Northport staff as they work their best to accommodate your needs.

I will continue to see families for primary care visits, but due to the limited nature of my office hours, I ask that families keep an emergency pediatrician as a backup. I will continue to work with families who have children with chronic medical conditions, and will also offer educational consultations to families as I have in the past.

In an attempt to continue delivering exceptional care to my patients, I am implementing an email policy for the practice. Please click here to learn more.

Jennifer Zethner, RN, MS, PNP, is the nurse practitioner who has been seeing patients in the Northport office since April 2011 under my close supervision. We will both continue to provide this service to you.

I remain committed to planning and coordinating educational material for the public in the field of holistic pediatric medicine. Stay tuned for further announcements.

I look forward to seeing you soon.


Lawrence B. Palevsky, MD
