Since it is not possible to tell the difference between an early COVID-19 infection and a minor respiratory illness, Village Pediatrics will not see on its premises:

1. Any patient or household member who has had close contact with a symptomatic person diagnosed with COVD-19.

2. Any patient or household member who has a fever OR cough OR difficulty breathing OR sore throat OR body aches.

We will offer phone consultations or telehealth services by one of our doctors or nurse practitioners for patients with these symptoms.

We believe that by limiting entrance to our office to patients who do not have these symptoms, it will make our office a much safer place for you and your child to come ifor routine visits and for treatment of other conditions.

We ask for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.



Due to the continued impact of COVID-19, we are offering TeleHealth services for behavioral health visits.  To get started, you will need a MyChart account.  Call our office to sign up for MyChart. For more information on Virtual Visits, click Here.

TeleHealth services for medical visits will soon be available in the near future.



We are temporarily suspending all Walk-In hours due to CoronaVirus concerns.  Please call our office to make an appointment.

In order for us to care for your child, you must enroll onto the TUFTS HEALTH TOGETHER WITH BOSTON CHILDREN'S ACO plan.

Why?  MassHealth has changed the way they operate because they are spending more money than the state can afford.

Why Tufts Health Together With Boston Children's ACO?  Children's Hospital investigated all their options and found that Tufts Health Plan offered the best plan for children.  Since we are associated with Children's Hospital, we chose this plan so that our patients can continue to receive great care with the best specialists in the area.  Since MassHealth will no longer allow pediatricians to belong to more than one MassHealth plan, we think this one will be the best for children we care for.  For more information or to change your plan, contact MassHealth:
