Welcome to the website of East Greenwich Pediatrics located in East Greenwich, RI. Our practice is committed to the healthcare of children and adolescents, from birth through age 19. We believe in partnering with parents to provide the highest quality care, sensitive to the physical and emotional needs of our patients. Our office offers a warm, friendly environment for caring, personalized attention to your family.
East Greenwich Pediatrics uses the patient Centered Medical Home model of care. Patient Centered is a way of saying you are the most important person in the health care system. You are at the center of your health care.
A Medical Home is an approach to providing total health care. In a medical home you will join a team of health care professionals to help you with your health care. The doctors and staff here at East Greenwich Pediatrics are a part of your medical home. We are here to help you reach your health care goals. We will coordinate your care with other physicians to provide evidence-based care along with self-management support.
The Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a model that emphasizes improving and maintaining healthy lifestyles. We are committed to providing our patients with the support they need to manage their treatment plans.
With a Medical Home, you and your team will work together. As an active member of the team, you will have a chance to explain things that are really important to you. To assist us with providing the best possible care, you will need to provide a complete medical history including any care you have received outside of our practice.
The pediatricians at East Greenwich Pediatrics strongly recommend that ALL children over the age of six months receive the flu vaccine. Children 6 months to 2 years, and/or children with asthma that are currently taking an inhaled steroid every day or who have other chronic illnesses should receive a flu shot. Children 2 years and older who do not have a chronic illness should receive Flumist, an inhaled intranasal vaccine. If your child is allergic to eggs, he/she may NOT receive flu vaccine without consulting his/her physician and must receive the vaccine during regular office hours.
If your child has not yet had a flu vaccine, please call the office to arrange a time.

With great sorrow, we inform you of the death of Laurie Muddiman, our nurse practitioner, following a courageous ten-month battle with cancer. All of us at East Greenwich Pediatrics grieve the loss of our dedicated, highly skilled and compassionate colleague. Laurie loved her work and we know you also will greatly miss the caring devotion she gave to your children’s health care needs.
