Comprehensive infectious disease services

The Karin and Dayton Brown, Jr. Division of Infectious Diseases offers comprehensive care to patients with acute or chronic infections and is a leader in infectious disease control. Our doctors come from a variety of specializations and provide infectious disease education to a wide range of healthcare workers. Our staff participates in many research projects, from which our division integrates new findings. 

We have also implemented infection control programs for many of our health system hospitals. We boast many impressive facilities, including:

  • HIV Treatment Center: A premier facility on Long Island, identified as the largest Designated AIDS Center in the region
  • Travel and Immunization Center: Specializes in the care of adults who travel, as well as care of the long-term, high risk, specialty, immunocompromised and pregnant travelers
  • Onsite pharmacy dedicated to infectious diseases

If you're struggling, we're here to help. We offer a support group for HIV-infected women, as well as for caregivers of HIV-positive children.
