Valerie Zeffiro joined our practice as a Physician Assistant in January 2020. She previously worked at an OBGYN clinic for the underserved in Pennsylvania. Valerie is a native Long Islander, having graduated from Sachem High School East as Valedictorian. She then earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Bachelor of Arts in Spanish from Siena College, graduating Magna Cum Laude as the only Dual-Degree Recipient in her class. Thereafter, Valerie pursued her dream of becoming a health care provider, achieving a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies degree from DeSales University. As a bilingual provider, she especially enjoys helping Spanish-speaking patients through communication in a shared language. Valerie is enthusiastic about learning from and with ALL of her patients, and assisting them during some of the most vulnerable moments of their lives. She looks forward to continuing to bring compassionate, quality health care to the women of Long Island!
