NYU Langone Health and South Shore Neurologic Associates today join forces, enhancing access to high-quality specialized care in Suffolk County with three NYU Langone South Shore Neurologic Associates locations in Patchogue, Riverhead, and Islip.
“As the premier provider for neurologic care on Long Island, South Shore Neurologic Associates today joins the No. 1 ranked health system in New York State and the No. 1 ranked neurology and neurosurgery program in the nation,” said Andrew Rubin, senior vice president for clinical affairs and ambulatory care at NYU Langone. “With a shared commitment to high-quality care, together we will better meet the needs of our diverse patient population.”
NYU Langone South Shore Neurologic Associates grows NYU Langone’s footprint on Long Island, with more than 100 practices, and complements clinical services at outpatient care centers at NYU Langone Medical Associates—Patchogue, 100 Hospital Road and NYU Langone Medical Associates—Riverhead. A single electronic health record system, the NYU Langone Health app, and NYU Langone Health MyChart connect the entire health system, so patients can find all of their health information in one place.
NYU Langone South Shore Neurologic Associates
Specialists at NYU Langone South Shore Neurologic Associates offer a wide range of neurology care across three sites, including the following:
- diagnostic testing
- physical therapy through Rusk Rehabilitation
- pain management
- chiropractic care
- clinical research trials
- comprehensive services for multiples sclerosis, headache and migraine, and epilepsy
Infusion services are provided nearby.
One of NYU Langone’s largest practice transitions, the care team at NYU Langone South Shore Neurologic Associates brings 20,000 patients and 200 employees, including 6 nurse practitioners, 7 physical therapists, and 12 physicians. There are also plans to expand on-site services.
“Our guiding principal since 1982, when Dr. Norman L. Chernik founded the practice and hired Dr. Henry Moreta as his first associate shortly thereafter, has always been to put our patients first,” said Edward Firouztalé, DO, DSc, adjunct assistant professor of neurology at NYU Long Island School of Medicine and a former partner at South Shore Neurological Associates. “While we’ve worked with NYU Langone for many years, joining the NYU Langone family allows us to continue to grow and provide our patients with greater access to comprehensive care closer to home.”
Suffolk County Expansion
In addition to the neurologic program expansion in Suffolk County, NYU Langone will also welcome a multisite orthopedic practice and physicians who specialize in hand surgery, women’s health, and interventional cardiology, bringing specialized care closer to patients where they live and work.
