Allied Physicians Group, an independent provider of high-quality, comprehensive family health care services for children and adults, recently held the ribbon cutting and ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new office, Allied Pediatrics of Rocky Point, at 346 Highway 25A, Rocky Point, Feb. 16. The new office is Allied’s 24th location on Long Island, bringing the total number of pediatric practices in the New York metro area to 36, and is also Allied’s first office to be built from the ground up.

The state-of-the-art 5,500 square foot pediatric practice has eight employees, including three pediatricians, Dr. Nubia Vargas-Chen, Dr. Eric Levene and Dr. Daniel Freidman.
