Dr. Durga Sunitha Posina, M.D. is a renowned board-certified physician in Internal Medicine in Stony Brook, New York. Dr. Posina was born in a small town in India before moving to the Tri-State area as a child. An early love for science, skincare, and philanthropy fueled her determination to study medicine. Initially, Dr. Posina began her undergraduate studies at Rutgers University in Biology and Economics prior to starting her medical training at the PSI Medical College in the heart of Southern India. Her medical training in India gave her an opportunity to learn about the potential synergistic benefits of combining eastern therapies with western medicine. As such, subsequent to her medical training, she pursued her post-graduate training in Internal Medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital, the largest academic medical center in Long Island, New York.
In addition to her expertise in internal medicine, Dr. Posina has completed significant training in dermatological procedures and treatments involving hyperpigmentation, acne, hair loss, and vitiligo. She is also certified in anti aging therapies such as stem- cell therapy, integrative weight loss training, platelet-rich plasma therapy, advanced hair restoration therapy, personalized medical grade chemical peels, designing medical- grade facials, skin-rejuvenating laser therapies, and Intravenous Vitamin infusions.
Due to her extensive exposure to community medical outreach nationally and internationally, she has a command of socio-economic barriers that affect vulnerable populations that are at higher risk for chronic diseases. Dr. Posina has also been a strong advocate for community education on chronic illnesses that plague our society such as obesity, diabetes and hypertension.
Dr. Posina is an experienced internist, specialized in the management acutely-ill hospitalized patients at several medical centers in the Northeast. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, she worked on the frontlines by taking care of critically ill patients with coronavirus in New York, the nation’s first epicenter.
The much-awaited launch of her extensively researched skincare line is a fusion of traditional eastern medicine with modern science. The product line is an amalgamation of love, purity, and science with maximum efficacy. Dr. Posina considers herself “the beauty internist” due to her knowledge of anti-aging, and her love of all things beauty- related as well as her extensive background in Internal Medicine. She places an emphasis on keeping her patients youthful-looking and feeling by treating them from the inside out so they are not simply “visually youthful” but internally as well.
