At South Shore Medical Center, we believe that it's a privilege to care for the South Shore's infants and toddlers.

We recognize that the early days and months of a child's life feature a mixture of stressful and wonderful moments for parents, whether it's your first child or a new addition to a growing family.

Many of our pediatricians are parents themselves and take pride in helping parents navigate these precious first few weeks, months, and years.

Our goal is to make it as convenient as possible for your child to get the care he or she needs, from the first post-birth visit to immunizations and beyond.

Our practice offers on-site lab and x-ray services, same-day appointments, and access to specialists across South Shore Health, should the need arise.

To become a patient, please fill out our New Patient Registration form. Current patients are welcome to log into MyChart to make an appointment, view lab results, message your care providers, and more. For helpful resources and other information, please see below.
