Patient Care

Patient care comes in many forms at Stony Brook: one-on-one relationships with physicians who are familiar with the patient’s medical history and life story; a wealth of community education and classes to give you that extra layer of support; a family-centered approach during hospitalization, ongoing follow-up; and highly coordinated care that includes access to specialists as needed. Through all of it, patients remain front and center. We believe your quality of life is just as important as your medical outcome, and we make every effort to ensure that you are comfortable with our processes, understand terminology and are actively involved in all decisions. At Stony Brook, you, the patient, are the key member of the medical team and we treat you with the care that you need and the respect that you deserve.
