East Side Pediatrics, on Providence's historic College Hill, is a primary care pediatric office caring for children from birth to 21 years old.  We are a NCQA-certified Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) providing comprehensive and coordinated care that focuses on quality improvement.


Our doctors are members of the American Academy of Pediatrics and are board-certified by the American Board of Pediatrics. Academic rigor keeps our doctors from having stagnant medical knowledge.


Knowledge is not enough, though. Our providers understand the importance of bedside manner. We 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 


the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Declaration expires on May 11, 2023 and, with that, our universal mandatory masking requirement ends.  Nonetheless, with the lessons learned over the past 3 years, we will continue to separate well patients and sick patients in our schedule and we will continue to schedule fewer patients per hour to decrease your time in the waiting room.  Masking is encouraged for anyone who chooses to wear a mask and we will continue to offer masks at the front desk for anyone that requests one.  We want to keep all patients, families, and staff safe as we emerge from this crisis.


Additionally, with the expiration of the emergency declaration we ask you to:

  • wear a mask if you are being seen for a sick visit and have a fever, cough, or other respiratory or flu-like symptoms 
  • wear a mask if you have COVID-19 and are within the 10 day isolation period
  • tell us if you have a fever, cough, or other signs of respiratory or infectious illness when we call to confirm your well visit so that we may reschedule to another day
  • tell us if you have a fever, cough, or other signs of respiratory or infectious illness that have developed overnight when you arrive for a well visit appointment so that we may offer an afternoon sick visit if available (though calling before getting to the office would offer you more sick visit availability)
  • consider COVID-19 vaccination if you are eligible

After Hours

  • when we are not in the office there is always one of us on call.  we also use an overnight nurse triage service. the doctor on call and the nurse triage service are both accessed by calling our main office number @ 401-383-4411.
  • With this recent surge in community illness, many medical systems, including our answering service and nurse triage service, are deeply impacted by increased call volume.  As always, call 911 if you think you are or may be experiencing an emergency.  For more routine calls, our answering service taking the message and our MDs and nurse triage service will get back to you as soon as possible..
  • Please note that our overnight nurse triage service does not have access to patient records, so they can not send referrals, or orders for testing, can not schedule vaccine appointments or office visits, and do not have access to test results.
  • For patients needing in-person evaluation when we are unavailable we recommend JustKidsRI, a pediatric-specific urgent care in Cumberland, Rhode Island, and the Hasbro Children's Hospital emergency department in Providence.

Our board-certified doctors have decades of combined experience in Southeastern New England. And they are parents themselves. Find out more!

You may now request medication refills or referrals through our portal in a HIPPA-compliant environment.
