Our practice provides comprehensive pediatric and adolescent care for children from birth through the college years.  Our aim is to foster a personalized relationship with children, adolescents, and their parents, and provide exceptional care throughout a child’s and young adult’s life.  We are a member of the Pediatric Physicians’ Organization at Boston Children’s Hospital.  When specialized care is required, we will refer your child to a specialist who we trust, at Children’s Hospital or another local institution.

Ready or Not, Here It Comes!
Each year after school begins, remember to immunize your family against influenza. We conduct several annual flu-vaccine clinics for children at the end of the day, by appointment. Please call our office to schedule.

Flu vaccine, like most vaccines, has enormous social value. It protects recipients of the vaccine, and importantly, vaccinated children limit spread to those with whom they come into contact — especially individuals who may be infirm or immunocompromised.

A Word About Urgent Care Centers
We discourage our patients from using Urgent Care Centers or Walk-in clinics without calling us first. While it is true that these centers can be helpful at times, our experience has frequently been that diagnoses are missed, ailments are mistreated with inappropriate medications or dosing, and referrals to emergency rooms and specialists are increased. These centers are typically staffed by physicians or nurse practitioners who are not broadly trained in pediatrics. One of us, or our coverage group, is available 24/7 to help guide you when you, or your child or teenager, has an urgent pediatric medical issue.
