Dr Matthew Pabis is the Medical Director of Primary Care at St. Mark’s Pl. Institute for Health.
Dr. Matthew Pabis, who is known as Dr. Matt in the clinic, is a board certified Family Medicine physician. In addition to providing primary care for patients at the clinic, he works closely with the chemical dependence team providing buprenorphine-naloxone (aka Suboxone) treatment for opioid addicted patients.
Before joining St Mark’s Pl, Dr Matt completed his residency at Ellis Hospital in Schenectady NY. While there he lead the City Mission Free Health Clinic which provide completely free health care to who ever needed it. He also was a member of the ethics committee of Ellis Hospital.
After completing his residency at Ellis Hospital, Dr Matt took a job as a Family Medicine doctor in Harlem NY with a very large commercial group. Dr Matt did not quite feel at home in that environment so when an opportunity to start a primary care office in a multispecialty private office in the upper east side of Manhattan presented itself, Dr Matt took it. There Dr Matt worked with orthopedic doctors, pain management doctors, and cosmetic doctors. Even though Dr Matt enjoyed his time there, he wanted to work at a larger clinic that served a more diverse population.
So Dr Matt came to St Mark’s Pl Institute where he set up a primary care clinic. Dr Matt sees patients for primary care and works closely with both psychiatrists and therapists in the mental health and chemical dependence programs to provide complete care for all of St Mark’s Place Institute patients.
