Welcome to Bridgewater Pediatrics!

For the 2020-2021 school year the Department of Public Health is requiring that all schoolchildren and children in childcare settings receive the flu vaccination by February 28, 2021. To meet this need, Bridgewater Pediatrics will be holding flu vaccine clinics from September 1st through January 1st 2021, as the need remains. Please schedule an appointment through MyChart or call the office if you need assistance or have any questions.

We are an award-winning pediatric practice affiliated with Boston Children's Hospital. We strive to provide the finest comprehensive pediatric services to children from birth through adolescence.  Our doctors, nurse practitioners, and staff provide family-centered care to our patients, partnering with you to ensure your child's physical, emotional, spiritual, and academic success. 

Our team believes that exceptional care is obtained when there is an ongoing relationship between the doctor and patient – we want to be lifelong partners in your child’s health.  We take the time to listen to your questions and concerns, provide education and parenting advice, and help you understand your child’s needs.

"I've been bringing my kids to Bridgewater Pediatrics for 5 years. I can't say enough positive things about them. They treat us like family. They answer the phone promptly. I never get stuck on hold. I can always get an appointment right away and have never once felt rushed during an appointment. They answer all my questions no matter how big or small. They follow up after sick visits to make sure the kids are feeling better. They make my kids so comfortable that instead of being afraid to go to the doctor I have a hard time getting them to leave."


"I am very happy with our choice of Bridgewater Pediatrics. My daughter is now two and we have only had pleasant experiences. The office staff is great, and we never have to wait to be seen. I have called 3 times with a sick child and they have always taken her right away."
"Thank you for the care you give me and my children. It has made a world of difference for us in the short five months we have been there. You can feel the professional care and attention at every level. This means a lot of a mom of three and one on the way!"
