In 1978, I began a solo practice of what was to become Northampton Area Pediatrics. I was fortunate to be joined in the early years of practice by Dr. Robert Bissell  and Dr. Catherine Bartlett . Our medical group has continued to grow since then with additional excellent pediatricians and dedicated nurse practitioners joining us over the years.

Our job is to assure that the children we serve thrive to develop full and healthy lives. I enjoy keeping abreast of the latest medical developments with a focus on utilizing technology to give the best possible care to the children in our practice. Our recent affiliation with Boston Children’s Hospital through the PPOC (Pediatric Physicians of Children’s) has been a particularly exciting step forward in serving children and families in ways that were never possible before.  I serve on the Board of the PPOC, the Pediatric Council of the Massachusetts Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and as a delegate from the Hampshire District Medical Society to the Massachusetts Medical Society.

In 2019 I will be reducing my hours at Northampton Area Pediatrics to allow more time for travel, for family, and to walk the Camino across northern Spain. Although I will no longer have a panel of patients who identify me as their Primary Care Physician, I hope to see many of the children I have cared for over the years when I am covering for my fellow physicians when they are away, consulting with them for questions about any child, and generally being available for any parent to contact me about any concern anytime.
