Your MEDICAL HOME
A MEDICAL HOME is the kind of primary health care we all want and deserve. A MEDICAL HOME is not a place—it is the way care is provided to your child/youth and your family. At the core of a MEDICAL HOME is a knowledgeable, compassionate health care provider and care team chosen by a patient and their family to take care of a child/youth’s health needs. “NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition raises the bar in defining high-quality care by emphasizing access, health information technology and coordinated care focused on patients,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “Recognition shows that Town Pediatrics, PC has the tools, systems and resources to provide its patients with the right care, at the right time.” For more information, please read our “Medical Home Brochure”.

What Our Patients Are Saying
We have trusted Town Pediatrics with our three boys since our first was born in 2005. Our confidence in their capabilities as well as our trust in their judgement gives us wonderful peace of mind.
Dr. Groeber has been our primary pediatrician for nine years through 8 kids, 4 with special needs. I am truly grateful you are here. I like the women doctors, multicultural blend and trust in a mother’s observations and opinions.
We’ve entrusted the healthcare of our 5 children to the wonderful doctors at Town Peds for 9 years. We have such confidence and trust in this great team.
Thank you so much to all of the Doctors, Nurses and Staff at Town Pediatrics. I just sent my oldest daughter off to college and feel that she received excellent care here. We greatly appreciate your giving her allergy shots and caring for her over the years.
You ALL are amazing people and I drive all the way from Haymarket just for you all!! Keep up the fantastic, friendly, customer service oriented job.
I’m extremely satisfied and happy with everyone at the practice. Especially with the way my special needs child is addressed.
We are a large family with nine children, six whom have special needs. Town Pediatrics has provided us with excellent care and continuity with over two dozen medical specialists. We feel confidence and trust in all their pediatricians. They have always treated our kids like their own. I highly recommed them!
Our children have been patients in the Town Pediatrics practice for 10 years. In that time, we have been consistently impressed by the clinical expertise of the doctors and nurses, and caring by all staff. Over 90% of the time, we can schedule same-day sick appointments around our family’s schedule, and all routine annual physicals are very thorough. We appreciate how proactive staff seems about promoting healthy lifestyle habits, and communicating with their young patients how to take personal responsibility in this area. Thank you, Town Pediatrics Staff!!!
Best Practice. All the staff, doctors and nurses are very professional.
Excellent. I have a special needs child and the doctor goes above and beyond to assist my family in great care and finding resources.
Fantastic. Doctors are top, extremely knowledgeable with so much experience. They are like family.
Cannot say enough good things about this place!!! I’ve never been to an office where I love all of the staff! My daughters have been seen by 2 different doctors there. I loved them both! The office staff is amazing and so friendly! The nurses clearly care so much. My daughter was very cranky and the nurses and the doctor just cheered her up so much:) So glad they’re my daughters pediatric!
We have used both Dr. Groeber and Dr. Rappaport since all 3 of our children were babies and could not have more nice things to say about the entire practice! We have moved 3 times since we started using them (each time further away) and continue to make the drive because they are worth it! They are warm and always willing to listen to our concerns, and we are always able to get in with a doctor that knows each of our children’s specific health history within 3 hours of a phone call. I have also received many phone calls from the doctors and not just the nurses answering my questions. I would recommend the practice to anyone looking for a practice with a small town feel and highly qualified pediatrician that genuinely care about their patients. The nurses are always friendly, and the office staff is warm and welcoming
We just love Town Pediatrics! We see Dr. Tang for all of our well baby visits. We trust her professional opinion and appreciate how she listens to our concerns and works with us to provide our little guys with the best care! I’m so glad to have found Town Peds and I recommend them to all the moms I know!
I love all the staff! Everyone from check in to check out is very professional and great at what they do!
