Welcome

The staff and providers are pleased to announce starting January 6, 2020 we will be expanding our Geneseo office hours to better serve you. Our new hours are: Monday through Thursday 9-7 and Friday 9-5. We will also be offering all day sick visit access with a designated provider on Mondays from 9-4.

Please join us in welcoming Kathryn Faulkner to her new position with Stony Brook Pediatrics. Kathyrn has been with Stony Brook Pediatrics since August of 2016 as part of our Registered Nurse team. She has been working on her Nurse Practitioner degree since this time. We are pleased to welcome her to her new role.



Welcome to Stony Brook Pediatrics! For over 30 years we have been focused on providing the best care for children of all ages. At Stony Brook, we believe in the concept of the “Medical Home.” It is not a physical location, but a concept. The American Academy of Pediatrics describes the Medical Home as a model of delivering primary care that is accessible, continuous, comprehensive, family-centered, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective.

Our Practice is comprised of four Pediatricians, four Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, and two Physician Assistants. With two locations, one in Dansville and another in Geneseo, we specialize in child care from birth through the end of college. Electronic Medical Records make it easy for our patients to receive the same excellent care at either office. Our support staff includes several nurses, billing, and front office staff.

We consider each other and our patients as family, and this is evident as soon as you walk through our doors. We are proud of our long history of exceptional service to the families of Livingston county and surrounding areas. Our website is designed as a tool to help answer and educate on important child healthcare topics. The parent resource section is dedicated to providing information to parents on a wide range of topics. New mothers can read the expecting page for helpful insight on what is required prior to birth.

We look forward to meeting you and your family. Whether you choose our Geneseo Office or our other location in Dansville you can be sure that you and your children will receive the best healthcare available.
