Pediatrics

If you’ve got kids, you know the importance of great pediatric care. You also know that juggling work or school with medical appointments isn’t easy. That’s where UHS comes in!

Pediatrics and family practice specialists care for the children of UMass Amherst students, faculty and staff at our convenient campus location. Our on-site lab and radiology departments, full-service pharmacy and Walk-In Clinic are here when you need us! We care for kids from infancy through adolescence, including:

  • routine well-care visits
  • sick visits
  • immunizations, including travel medicine
  • hearing screening
  • vision screening
  • developmental and behavioral visits
  • adolescent gynecological visits

Your First Visit

If it’s your child’s first visit with us, please arrive 20 minutes before the scheduled appointment to complete the registration process. 

Bring all immunization records and any available medical records with you to this visit.

Save time by downloading the Pediatric Assessment Form from this website; bring the completed form to your appointment.

Routine Care

Routine care at UHS is by appointment; call 413-577-5101.  Established patients should arrive 15 minutes early for appointments, to allow for any necessary testing or paperwork.

Walk-In Care

If your child needs same-day acute care, they can be seen without an appointment in our Walk-In Clinic. You can also call for a same-day appointment: 413-577-5101. These appointments tend to fill up quickly, so call early in the morning. 24-hour health is available at 413-577-5229. Our medical professionals will offer advice and see your child if necessary; an on-call pediatrician is also available as needed.

UHS is not a hospital and does not have an emergency department. In a life-threatening emergency, call 911 for ambulance transportation to a hospital.

Forms, Records and Prescriptions

To have medical forms completed for school or camp, obtain immunization records or request a prescription refill, call 413-577-5311; allow 48 working hours for these to be completed.
