General Pediatrics Practice

Helping children lead healthy lives

When you have a sick child, nothing is more comforting than to know that a doctor is available, whether it is early morning or in the evening after work. You will find caring, expert doctors and nurses and flexible hours and services unique to a major academic medical center at Floating Hospital for Children’s General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine Practice. We are ready when you need us, with walk-in hours starting at 8 a.m., after-work hours until 7:30 in the evening Monday through Thursday, and on Saturdays 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  When you arrive, you will find a dedicated, pediatric waiting room designed to be soothing for children, with brightly colored pictures of animals and toys. Our fast growing program – we see over 25,000 children a year – is always ready to take on new patients, with same-day visits when needed. There is also a pediatrician on-call, 24 hours a day. We have many loyal, long-term patients.

What we offer

At our practice, you will find a comprehensive range of services, including school physicals, well-baby check-ups, and immunizations. Our doctors are also experienced in dealing with issues affecting adolescents, including menstrual and eating disorders, gynecological issues and contraception. We also offer additional services you won’t find in a typical pediatric practice, with a dietician on staff to help work with children with weight problems and also with young athletes, who can discuss their unique nutritional goals and concerns. We can draw on a network of social workers to do mental health referrals and lactation consultants to work with nursing mothers. We can also draw the larger resources of Floating and Tufts Medical Center, with no need to make another trip to the local hospital for tests or x-rays.
