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.
Thank you for your continued support
