Pediatrics

A wide range of pediatric services from birth through adolescence.

Our pediatricians and staff are committed to meeting the health care needs of young people from newborn to early adulthood in a welcoming and informative environment. We provide a wide range of pediatric services from birth through adolescence. Because we are part of an academic medical center, our patients receive the advantages of the latest research and innovation in health care both in the promotion of wellness and the treatment of illness.

Services

Medical services include newborn, well child and adolescent care; physical, school, sports and camp exams; immunizations; routine tests and screenings; consultative services; diagnostic and treatment services for acute and chronic illness; hospital care and more.

Our Team

Our pediatricians are certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and are Fellows of the American Academy of Pediatricians. Many have additional advanced training. They have extensive experience in caring for children and a vast array of special clinical interests.

Appointments

You will be given the earliest possible appointment with your child's practitioner. If an appointment is needed immediately, we will make every effort to have your child seen by a physician the same day.

We are accepting new patients and welcome referrals. We participate in most major insurance plans. Parents-to-be are encouraged to make an appointment to meet with one of our pediatricians prior to the birth of their baby. We see newborns at UConn's John Dempsey Hospital and many other hospitals in the area.
