Hospital Affiliation

ST. LUKE’S-ROOSEVELT HOSPITAL CENTER, An Academic Affiliate of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons

Jerome Abellana Cariaso, M.D.

Dr. Jerome established this practice as a culmination of at least 10 years of pediatric clinical experience and a wealth of personal adventures.  He is back home in New York City where his career and his family’s immigrant Filipino-American story started.  He grew up in the Philippines where he earned his degree of Doctor of Medicine at the Cebu Institute of Medicine and developed a keen understanding and compassionate involvement in the health needs of children.  He pursued a focused clinical training in pediatrics at the Children’s Medical Center, Philippines and served rural far-flung communities as part of that training and clinical exposure.  That initial experience instilled in him the determination to further his medical career in Pediatrics.  He migrated to the United States joining his parents and sibling, not to mention a vast network of relatives, in New York City.  He took and completed his Pediatric residency training at the New York Methodist Hospital in Park Slope, Brooklyn.  After his residency training, he worked in an urban community health center in Fort Green, Brooklyn which honed his skills and confidence.  He then moved on to join a private group practice in Queens working in 2 offices and doing rounds in five (5) area hospitals.  Later on, he furthered his clinical experience in a suburban private practice and also, in a rural hospital group practice.  He also took medical education responsibilities for medical students as a clinical instructor/preceptor in pediatrics at the New York Medical College and University of Vermont College of Medicine.  As a clinical associate in the graduate nursing program of Molloy College, he also helped in the training of pediatric nurse practitioners.  At this point in his career, his experiences has come full circle to bring him back to the city he loves and serve the community that has given him and his family, opportunity and respect.
