East Side Pediatrics, on Providence's historic College Hill, is a primary care pediatric office caring for children from birth to 21 years old.
Our doctors are members of the American Academy of Pediatrics and are board-certified by the American Board of Pediatrics. We spend time teaching medical students from Brown University and pediatric residents from Hasbro Children's Hospital. Academic rigor keeps our doctors from having stagnant medical knowledge.
Knowledge is not enough, though. Our providers understand the importance of bedside manner. We are parents, too, and always consider things from both a doctor's and parent's perspective. We love taking care of children and treat patients as if taking care of our own.
Our board-certified doctors have decades of combined experience in Southeastern New England. And they are parents of young children themselves. Find out more!
You may now review recent office visits, print out immunizations and school forms, and modify allergy information from home. All
in a HIPPA-compliant environment.
There is a great deal of medical information on the internet, only some of it reliable. Look up diagnoses, get medication dosages,
follow useful links, become better informed!
