Before joining Summit Medical Group, Stacey C. Tavel, MD, was a pediatrician in private practice at Westcare Medical Group in New York City. She also has been a member of the medical staff at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital and Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York City.

An advocate for children and parents, Dr. Tavel has delivered invited community lectures and presentations concerning healthy sleep habits and optimizing development in children. At Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, she was involved in a breastfeeding support project and she chaired a committee to develop baby-friendly hospital policies.

Dr. Tavel notes, "I wanted a career working with children as a result of my experience as a counselor for young campers." She adds, "Among the most gratifying aspects of my work is empowering parents with the information and confidence they need to raise healthy children. I emphasize disease and accident prevention, childhood development, effective family communication, and self-esteem in teens. In addition, I provide support for breastfeeding mothers."  Dr. Tavel believes in practicing medicine in a "respectful, courteous, and compassionate way." She partners with her patients' parents to ensure that the children she treats achieve, maintain, and improve their health.

Dr. Tavel is a recipient of the Rosa Lee Neminar Award for her outstanding performance in pediatrics at New York University School of Medicine.

When she is not working with her patients, Dr. Tavel spends time with her husband and three daughters.
