Pediatric Specialties was founded in 1977 by two Pediatricians who prided themselves in providing both the best in general pediatric care, as well as the best in pediatric subspecialty care. Joseph Bordiuk, MD was board certified in both Neonatology and Cardiology as well as General Pediatrics. Dr. Preston Zucker, MD was board certified in both Gastroenterology and General Pediatrics.
Today, the emphasis has shifted towards primary care and Pediatric Specialties is comprised of four board-certified pediatricians. Dr. Paul Harlow, Pediatrician and Pediatric Hematologist/Oncologist, a graduate of SUNY-Downstate Medical School; Dr. Steven Materetsky a graduate of the Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine & Science The Chicago Medical School; Dr. Jonathan Wong a graduate of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx; Dr. Dorienne Planer a graduate of Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Dr. Paul Harlow, Dr. Steven Materetsky, Dr. Jonathan Wong and Dr. Dorienne Planer all practice general pediatrics.
