Due to the elevated level of illness in our communities, please remain at home if you or your child is ill. If you have concerns about how your child is feeling during regular office hours, please contact us by sending a message through your MyChart patient portal. Our providers will be able to respond to you during regular office hours. Calling the office may present a further delay in response times.
The COVID-19 situation is ever unfolding. We are dedicated to the safety of our patients and staff. Please check our website frequently for updates on this changing situation.
Virtual Visits are here!
The single most important way to slow the spread of COVID-19 is through social distancing. This is true whether you are ill or well. For this reason, Amherst Pediatrics is now able to schedule Virtual Visits to allow you to stay home when you are sick, while still being "seen" by one of our providers. Before you can be seen in a Virtual Visit, there are a few important things you need to do. Please click on the image below to learn more about preparing for and scheduing your Virtual Visit.

Welcome to Our Practice
At Amherst Pediatrics, our dedicated team of healthcare professionals is committed to providing excellent medical care, service, and guidance to families as their children grow from birth to young adulthood. We achieve this through a comprehensive, continuous and personal approach to advice, treatment, and support. We expect to be the “medical home” for your child, helping to coordinate all your child’s health care needs.
We aim to serve all families in the community regardless of social or economic status and with respect for cultural beliefs. We consider it a privilege to care for children and strive to do so in a kind and compassionate manner. Medical information is handled with the strictest confidence in accordance with legal guidelines, and with respect for our patients and their families.
Caring for our patients is a longitudinal team effort that begins with the telephone call, continues through the office visit, and extends beyond the visit to include close follow-up and management of all of their healthcare needs. The team approach is also very important when patients see someone other than their regular provider. Families can expect the same care from all of our providers. This care is based on agreed-upon treatment standards and facilitated by information sharing through our electronic health record.
Amherst Pediatrics is proud to be a member of The Pediatric Physicians Organization at Boston Children’s Hospital (PPOC).
