Dr. Paulette A. Stewart, M.D.
A native New Yorker, Dr. Stewart pursued a degree in medicine at SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, New York. She subsequently completed a dual residency program specializing in internal medicine and pediatrics. Vigorous clinical training was in Kings County Hospital, Downstate Medical Center, and Staten Island University Hospital. After residency, Dr. Stewart worked for six years in a large not-for-profit community health center in midtown Manhattan.
In 2006, she decided to open a private practice in Queens where she was raised. As a descendant of Jamaican parents, her desire was to serve the growing West Indian population and multicultural Cambria Heights was the ideal location. Dr. Stewart has primarily seen her patients in her office, however, since the onset of the pandemic of 2020, Dr. Stewart has implemented "Tele visits" as a way to still see her patients. Tele visits allows her to provide the comprehensive care to parents without the risk of exposure to possible infectious illnesses by connecting remotely. Patients have benefited from the convenience of having access to their primary care physician without the barriers or personal time constraints, lack of transportation or reduced mobility.
Today, Dr. Stewart is a dual board certified practitioner in a growing internal medicine and pediatric practice. She is also proficient in Spanish which enables her to serve the many Latinos in the neighborhood. Dr. Stewart is a member of the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Home Care Physicians, and a fellow in the American Academy of Pediatrics. She is affiliated with Long Island Jewish Medical Center and Queens Hospital Center.
