Revere-Winthrop Pediatrics at 280 Beach St. has been in practice for more than three and despite a minor name change, it’s still practicing the same thing – excellent care for kids.
Dr. Janet Chua has assumed the duties of lead physician in the practice and indicated that they are pretty much keeping things the same. She has served in the practice since 2002.
“We are accepting new patients, where a lot of clinics are not,” she said. “We’ve seen three generations in a family here in a lot of cases. We have a new company name, but we are continuing to deliver excellent care based on our long record of doing so.”
She continued, “It’s pretty much the same. The only thing that’s different is the name of the corporation. The practice name is still the same.”
The practice features Dr. Leonard Firer in addition to Chua, and Dr. Bornstein is still active part-time. Nurse Practitioner Joan Granitsas is also on hand to treat patients, as well as a large and dedicated staff.
Carolyn Pivnik, the practice administrator, is also still hard at work.
The clinic has been groundbreaking in their commitment, opening seven days a week and also scheduling “sick child” walk-in appointments starting at 7:30 a.m. They are also open all holidays, and have 24-hour coverage.
They are aligned with Melrose-Wakefield Hospital and Children’s Hospital Boston.
It is the only private practice pediatrics office in Revere, and also serves most of the surrounding communities.
They can be reached at (781) 289-5057.
