About Us

Barbara Boccia, MD PhotoFor many years I have been in the Solo Practice in the Centereach, Selden, Stony Brook area and have been fortunate to have many long time relationships with patients and their families.  These relationships help me realize how family genetics, culture, socioeconomic ability and habits mold the health of my patients.  I see to intervene by being their partner in both primary prevention (preventing disease before it forms) and secondary prevention.  If a patient has a medical problem, I look to either help them cure it, or minimize its impact on the remainder of their life.  I welcome the challenge of coordinating diseases such as Diabetes Mellitus (DM), Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), Hypertension (HTN), Hyperlipidemia and early cancer detection.  I recognize that diseases are presumably alike, every individual is unique.
