Our Clinical Sites

With nearly 25,000 visits a year, we proudly serve the communities of Central Brooklyn, including Flatbush, East Flatbush, Prospect Lefferts, Canarsie, Crown Heights, Brownsville and East New York.

At both of our sites we  provide full-spectrum family medicine, which means comprehensive primary care for newborns, children, adolescents, adults, pregnant women, the elderly, and homebound patients. Our services include continuity and urgent care for all ages, maternity care (prenatal care, deliveries and post-partum), women’s health, family planning, well child care, care of older adults, minor office procedures, mental health services, connection to social services, nutrition consultation, patient education on chronic conditions, and more. We also provide inpatient care for any of our patients that may be admitted to our University Hospital.

Both of our Family Medicine health centers are recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as level three Patient Centered Medical Homes. This means we:

  • use a team approach to provide primary health care, including your health care provider, others who support you and your child(ren) and your family.
  • are available when you need us. You can communicate with us easily and efficiently and get appointments quickly.
  • know your health history. We know about your personal or family situation and can suggest treatment options that make sense for you.
  • help you understand and address your health care needs. We explain your options and help you make decisions about your care.
  • help you coordinate your health care. We will help you find specialists, get appointments and make sure specialists have the information they need to care for you.
