Beginning March 22 and until further notice, our office will be open 9am through 5pm Monday through Saturday. We are closed at lunch and on Sunday. Please make a note of the new hours.
Due to COVID-19, we are no longer accepting walk-in visits. Please contact the office and schedule an appointment.
We hope everyone is staying calm and taking all of the precautions recommended by the experts in the CDC and our Massachusetts Department of Public Health. The risk of serious COVID-19 disease to healthy children is exceedingly low at this time; no children under 10 have died from COVID-19 worldwide as far as we know (3/17/2020), and the symptomatic infection rate in young children appears to be low. The highest risk is for the elderly and the members of our community who have chronic illnesses; it is ALL of our responsibility to do everything that we can to protect them.
We want to remind everyone, however, of the importance of practicing social isolation as much as you can. All the credible experts tell us that the way to combat this pandemic is by flattening the time curve of new infections so that our medical system will be able to keep up with patients who require hospital-level care.
In situations like this, the recommendations will change rapidly, and we suggest three places where people can go to stay up to date or if you have questions:
Boston Children’s Hospital COVID-19 Hotline for general questions:
855-281-5730 or 617-355-4200
It is not helpful to seek information from unreliable sources, so please be very careful!
In our office, we are working hard to provide care to our patients when needed, but we do not want to bring people out of their homes unless it is necessary. As the day to day situation changes, our office will respond accordingly, following the recommendations of our colleagues at Boston Children’s Hospital and the Department of Public Health.

MassHealth Changes Coming To You!
Wareham Pediatrics is pleased to announce, beginning March 1, 2018, we have chosen the TUFTS HEALTH TOGETHER WITH BOSTON CHILDREN’S ACO. You should have already received something in the mail from MassHealth regarding this. Most of our patients will be automatically enrolled in this plan through MassHealth. If for some reason you haven’t received this information from MassHealth yet or MassHealth didn’t automatically assign you to the TUFTS HEALTH TOGETHER WITH BOSTON CHILDREN’S ACO you will need to contact MassHealth immediately in order to avoid any interruptions in care. They can be reached at 1-800-841-2900.
Please see our front desk and this ACO enrollment brochure if you have any questions.

At Wareham Pediatrics, You’re Family!
As a child or an adult, immunization is so important and can save your life or the life of someone with whom you interact. So, if you haven’t done it already, do it this week. Our patients can get their flu shot here in our office or in a local flu clinic or a pharmacy clinic. Just do it. You will breathe better! See www.immunize.org for some answers about many different immunizations. From the CDC… CDC recommends an annual flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older. There are documented benefits from flu vaccination, including reductions in flu illnesses, related doctors’ visits and missed work or school. Vaccination also prevents flu-related hospitalizations and deaths. If you have not been vaccinated yet this season, make plans to get your flu vaccine this fall.
