Dr. Lalendra Sinha founded South Island New Health Associates and South Island Medical Associates, P.C. in Far Rockaway in 1970. Dr. Sinha and his associates took over the practice of Dr. Stanley Winnick and Dr. Joseph Rothstein at 8918 Avenue L in 1995 and have since been providing residents with complete care under one roof.

Their several skilled physicians who speak Creole, French, Spanish, Hebrew, Yiddish, Hindi, Urdu and Bengali specialize in such departments as Cardiovascular disease, stomach disorders, radiology, nuclear medicine, urology, general surgery, neurology, pain management and geriatrics.

The medical staff at South Island Medical Associates, P.C. feels the most important aspect of their medical practice is understanding their patients problems and caring for them with compassion.

“We will sit with a patient – offer them a free consultation” says a member of the medical team. “Residents can find all their needs in one facility instead of being sent to all different doctors.”

For indigent and uninsured patients with urgent medical problems, South Island Medical Associates, P.C. provides free services including medicines (when available) on Wednesdays from 1 to 4 PM.
