My private practice, Putnam Pediatric Medicine PLLC, which started in 1973, is located in Carmel, New York in the beautiful lower Hudson Valley. I and a pediatric nurse practitioner are the providers. We give pediatric care to children from birth until the age of 22 years. It is not unusual to find a newborn baby and college-graduating patient in our office simultaneously. Ah, that's the joy of being a pediatrician! Our office is located directly opposite Putnam Hospital Center at The Barns Office Center. To obtain more information about our practice, please visit our website: www.putnampediatrics.com

Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Acne treatment: Minocycline and tetracycline belong to the same family of antibiotics so both share the same actions and bacterial resistance. Amoxicillin is more stable than Ampicillin and can be given 2x a day compared to 4x a day for ampicillin. As with any antibiotic for acne treatment, give Amoxicillin at least 2 - 4 weeks to effect a change in your acne.
