Our mission is to provide excellent quality pediatric medical care to infants, children and teenagers in a safe and nurturing environment. We address issues of children’s physical and mental health with an understanding of their unique developmental needs and the needs of their caregivers. Our staff stands ready to provide compassionate, respectful, supportive and confidential care to all children and families seven days a week.
In addition to routine well child evaluations and caring for acute illness, our doctors provide ongoing care for chronic conditions such as asthma, ADHD and developmental/behavioral concerns. Our doctors admit seriously ill children to Baystate Medical Center. We are integrated into the Massachusetts health care community and have access to an extensive referral network should specialty care be required for your child.
