Your primary care team
Our physicians are fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics and licensed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. As faculty members of Harvard Medical School, they are involved in the teaching and training of medical students and pediatrics residents. Our Nurse Practitioners are certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center and the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and licensed by the Commonwealth. Our nurse practitioners work as a team with our pediatricians to provide quality, compassionate, convenient care. All of our patients choose one primary care physician within our practice.
Yearly well visits are generally scheduled with the primary care pediatrician. In the first year of life you will have the opportunity to schedule some of the infant visits with our nurse practitioners so that you can get to know your entire health care team. Illness visits are generally scheduled with your primary care physician, though you will have the opportunity to schedule with a nurse practitioner in your care team if her availability is more convenient for you. When your primary care pediatrician is away from the office or unavailable, you will have the opportunity to choose to see a nurse practitioner from your care team, or one of the other pediatricians in the office.
Coordination of care
If your child needs a specialty visit or diagnostic test, our care coordination team will assist you in obtaining a timely appointment with a provider or facility who we know and trust with your child’s care. Our primary affiliation is with Boston Children’s Hospital. Visits with Children’s Hospital physicians and diagnostic testing services are available at the main hospital campus and at many community hospitals in our area. If your insurance requires that you obtain a referral authorization, please provide us in advance with the specialist’s name, date of the first appointment, NPI number, and number of visits required.
Our practice follows the “Medical Home” model: we deliver care that is accessible, continuous, comprehensive, family-centered, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective.
