Dr. Jean Haymond Announces her Retirement
Dr. Jean Haymond has announced that she will be retiring from pediatric practice as of March 15, 2019 after almost 25 years of service at Westfield Pediatrics. Dr. Haymond has touched the lives of a countless number of patients and their families with her extraordinary dedication, commitment, and desire to help children in all aspects of their lives. We will all dearly miss her presence but wish her all the best in her well-deserved retirement.
Please be assured that everyone at Westfield Pediatrics will do their utmost to make your child's transition of care to the other providers at Westfield Pediatrics as seamless as possible.
A personal note from Dr. Haymond:
After considerable discussion, my husband and I have decided that the time has come to retire and join our extended family in California, especially my mom who is 90 and our two sons. In March 2019, we will be moving back to the Bay Area in Northern California.
Saying goodbye after almost 25 years at Westfield Pediatrics is difficult, but I know that the time has come and that I will be leaving you in the capable hands of my partners and Robin. I began medical school over 40 years ago. Practicing pediatrics has been an incredible journey; it has been an honor and a privilege to help you navigate the triumphs and travails of parenthood.
Babies don't come with instruction manuals, but they inevitably grow up. Remember to enjoy your children at every age, and be proud of them. Also, remember to be proud of yourselves for undertaking the toughest job on the planet.
Thank you for your trust, your understanding and for allowing me to be part of your families. I will miss you all very much.
Jean Haymond, M.D.
Our doctors and staff take great pride in providing quality healthcare to children and their families from birth through adolescence. As a traditional, small private pediatric practice, we place a high value on getting to know each of our patients and their families throughout the years. It is incredibly rewarding to see our newborns as they head off to college!
At Westfield Pediatrics, we offer a complete array of pediatric services including prenatal visits for expecting parents, well-child care visits including developmental screening assessments and immunizations, and urgent care for acute and chronic illnesses.
We also believe that high quality pediatric care requires you to be able to reach one of our doctors at all times. Knowing that you can always reach someone who knows your child can be very comforting when your child is ill. As such, we have a Walk-In Hour on Mondays-Fridays from 8 am – 9 am for urgent visits. We also provide Same-day Sick Visit appointments every day- including Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. After hours phone calls are always taken by one of our doctors or nurses.
At Westfield Pediatrics, we utilize an Electronic Medical Record system and we provide a Patient Portal which allows parents convenient access to common services such as requesting routine appointments, referrals, and prescription refills.
Westfield Pediatrics has been serving the healthcare needs of children for over 50 years. We welcome you to our practice!
