Message from our executive director

Welcome, and thank you for visiting the home of Northwell Health Physician Partners.

We are a team of physicians and staff who have come together to serve you across 100 specialties. Whether you are looking to enhance your health and well-being through a long-term relationship with a primary care doctor, or in need of highly specialized care for a life-threatening illness, we have the right doctor for you. We have hundreds of conveniently located doctors’ offices as well as the broad network of outstanding community and tertiary care hospitals of Northwell Health, so we can provide care where you need it and when you need it.

And because we are a team, we work together, with a shared commitment to providing high quality, compassionate and innovative care. We are also defining what medical care should be, through our affiliation with the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell and Feinstein Institute for Medical Research.

We understand that you have a choice about where you go for medical care, and that we have to earn your trust with every encounter. I hope that you use this website to learn more about us, and choose to put that trust in us.
