Avondale’s Sunny Internal Medicine and Pediatrics has joined forces with Summit Medical Group Arizona to provide better care for the community.

The two head physicians of Sunny Internal Medicine, Drs. Subhasis and Jennifer Maitra, a married physician duo, believe the partnership will allow better efficiency and tools in continuing to deliver adequate patient care.

“Our partnership with Summit Medical Group allows us to utilize their resources and best practices to bring the highest quality of care to patients in our community,” said Dr. Jennifer Maitra.

They emphasized that the transition under new management will be virtually seamless for their patients, who will see new signage and an updated electronic health recording system.

“Prior to joining Summit Medical Group, we were a total mom-and-pop shop,” she said. “It was me and my husband and four staff members who have worked for us for more than a decade. With Summit Medical Group, we have legions of staff in all the different areas in which we need support like IT.” 

The partnership allows patients to utilize other specialized medical facilities in the Phoenix area.

Summit Medical Group Arizona, a physician-owned and -governed organization, was founded in 2018 through a partnership with Arizona Primary Care Physicians (APC) and Summit Health Management. The group offers 51 providers at seven locations in the Phoenix metropolitan area specializing in various areas including internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, geriatrics, colorectal, neurology, podiatry and audiology specialists, physician assistants and nurse practitioners.
