Dr. Philipp J Underwood has the following 3 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Emergency Medicine

    An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
    Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

  • Sports Medicine

    A sports medicine specialist is a physician who is trained to diagnose and treat injuries and conditions caused by participation in athletic activities.
    These doctors are generally employed by professional sports teams to care for the athletes who are injured. They have extensive knowledge of the types of injuries that athletes are most susceptible to, such as stress fractures, sprains, concussions, muscle cramps, ACL injuries, and shin splints.

Dr. Underwood recently took care of me in the emergency room at Syosset Hospital. His bedside manor was outstanding and he made a very uncomfortable situation for me, quite comfortable. Very grateful for his kind, and professional manor!

Loves to hear himself talk

He drags around a bunch of students and residents with him. I was first diagnosed by his senior, Dr. Munyak. My prior AC separation was causing problems on my left. Both left and right had RTC tears. Also C-Spine issues complicated matters. For some time I was going for cortisone injections but they seems to cause more problems over time. The PT was actually aggravating the condition. I found another doctor to go to since they are non-surgical and was driving me a bit nuts with negative results. The other doctor left me in PT for 11 weeks with no follow up after the initial visit, so I returned to Underwood and surely enough Underwood stated that there was NOTHING wrong with my shoulders. Out of the blue? Really? So Munyak and you BOTH did injections for NO REASON? So WHY did he recommend PRT for both shoulders if nothing was wrong? His records are inconsistent and so is he. He loves to hear himself talk while preaching to his residents and doesn't pay attention to the patient at all. Immediately jumps to ultrasound without asking patient, which pops up the cost of the visit by $750. Not worth the headache.
