Chestnut Hill Pediatrics has been serving families since its founding in 1980. Our team includes three experienced, board-certified physicians and two nurse practitioners who work together closely as a team. We maintain a strong affiliation with Boston Children’s Hospital and joined the Boston Children’s Hospital Primary Care Alliance in 2019.
So that we can offer you the best recommendations and technology, we are constantly reviewing scientific evidence and medical guidelines. We are active members in the Pediatric Physician’s Organization at Children’s (PPOC). This membership allows us to collaborate with our colleagues at Boston Children’s Hospital and other member practices. Our practice engages in continuous Quality Improvement and educational activities through the PPOC.
We offer many services, many with results available at the time of your encounter.

Your medical home
In 2010, we adopted the The American Academy of Pediatrics’ Medical Home model of care. Our medical home care coordinator (MHCC) leads our efforts to continually improve our patients' experience and the quality of care we deliver. As a result, we are better able to connect patients with external resources such as mental health providers and sub-specialists and assist families in obtaining insurance coverage for medications, supplies and medical equipment.
If your child has special health care needs, you may contact our MHCC at 617-277-2541 for assistance in coordinating your child's care. Among other tasks, she can help you schedule visits with specialists and find community-based organizations or resources that will be beneficial to you or your child.
