Our office hours are:
Monday - Thursday: 9am - 7pm. Friday: 9am-5:30pm
Saturdays, Sundays and all holidays* for urgent care sick visits: 9 am - 12:30 pm.
All visits are by appointment, even on weekends and holidays.
Throughout the weekdays, we see healthy children for check-ups, extended medical and behavioral consultations as well as sick children who need same-day urgent care visits. Although we have separate waiting rooms for healthy and sick children, they are not in use during COVID pandemic. All waiting is done in the car. Please see the our Home Page for up-to-date guidelines for being seen in our office.
*Please note that the following days are office holidays, therefore we are OPEN for urgent care from 9am-12:30pm: New Years Day, Martin Luther King Day, Presidents Day, Patriots Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Columbus Day, the Friday after Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
If the office is closed, you may reach the on-call provider by dialing our main number, 781-944-4250. Drs. Smith, Curdo, Sachs, Corwin, Ganesh and NP Lucy Delaney share the on-call duties. One of these six pediatric providers will call you back promptly. We do not share after hours call with other practices. After hours, you can always reach one of the Dowd Pediatric providers. Most calls can be handled with advice from our Dowd Pediatric provider. In some instances, however, our on-call provider will direct you to the Winchester Hospital Emergency Room for immediate care.
