Pediatrics at Bristol Medical CenterOur History
Since 1963, our Pediatric Department has been providing friendly and convenient full-service quality health care for the pediatric community.

WELCOME
We see patients in the office Monday – Thursday from 8:30am to 5pm, Fridays from 8:30 am to 6pm and Saturdays from 9am to 12 noon. Our office staff is well trained to present your questions and concerns to a doctor and in turn relay his/her answers back to you. If you would like your question directed to a specific physician please advise the staff at the time of your call.  Telephone hours are 8:30am - 12pm and 1pm to 4:30pm Monday through Friday and 8:30am to 11:30am on Saturdays.

What to Do When Sick:
If sick, call as early as posssible in the day to make an appointment.  Unfortunatley, our walk-in center is staffed by internists not pediatricians and see adults only.


After Hours
If you have a problem after hours, please call our office. The answering service will forward your name and phone number to the doctor on call. You should receive a return call within 30 minutes of leaving your message. If you have not heard from the doctor within thirty minutes please call again. In the event of an emergency we recommend you dial 911 or proceed to the Emergency Room. In the unlikely event of a phone malfunction you can reach the answering service directly for urgent problems at 401-276-6700

Cancellations
If you are unable to make your appointment please cancel with as much notice as possible so that your time slot may be filled by another patient.  You may be charged for late notification or missing an appointment.

Forms
Health Information and Immunization Forms for school, summer camps, sports and other activities are often complicated and take time to complete. Please allow 3 business days to have your forms completed. If you enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope we will gladly mail the forms back to you. We generally provide the standard state form with each physical.  If an additional copy is needed there is a $5 charge for each sport, camp or school form completed.  You may fax forms to us at 401-253-3131.

Hospital Affiliations
We admit our patients to Hasbro Children's Hospital and Women & Infants' Hospital.
