New York Health (NY Health), a premier center for primary and specialty care services with a network of outstanding physicians specializing in family medicine, internal medicine, nephrology, neurology, rheumatology, surgery, urology, and physical therapy, has announced the opening of its newest location at 5316 Nesconset Hwy. in Port Jefferson Station.
“The collective goal was to provide our patients with a modern and substantial space that would accommodate our rapid, continued growth and better meet our evolving needs,” said Dr. Rohit Reejsinghani, executive director of NY Health.
NY Health is the only private practice that is part of a non-hospital-owned multi-specialty group offering nephrology in the community. NY Health’s patients experience a personalized approach to care without sacrificing the services typically offered at larger institutions.
The state-of-the-art building, located 5.5 miles east of its previous Stony Brook location, will house the division’s seven nephrologists and internal medicine physician, Dr. Charles G. Bleecher. The center will also provide access to amenities such as on-site laboratory services typically outsourced and foster continuity of care with streamlined clinical collaboration between providers through a shared electronic health record infrastructure.
Dr. Darren Kaufman, a well-respected nephrologist living in Stony Brook, recently joined NY Health to continue serving his community with the highest quality care. “I am very proud to be part of a multispecialty practice whose senior leadership is actively taking steps to increase the resources available to its physicians so that they can take the best possible care of their patients in the office setting,” he said. “This not only improves the patient care experience, which is in and of itself very important; it also allows us to keep our patients safely out of the hospital if that is at all possible.”
Kaufman has been a practicing physician for more than 30 years. He obtained a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry at SUNY Stony Brook before attending Ross University School of Medicine. He completed a residency in internal medicine at Jersey City Medical Center, where he was chief resident. Kaufman also completed his nephrology fellowships at New York Medical College and SUNY Stony Brook, which included an additional year of research in acid-base physiology. HE earned a master of science in management and policy at Stony Brook’s Harriman School of Management and Policy.
