"The entire office staff has been kind any time we’ve needed forms filled out for sports and gotten us in for unexpected illnesses."
"Love East Bay Pediatrics of Barrington! My son is a wrestler and had a thumb injury right before a big match mid-season. I called at 4:55 on a Friday and they said come on in!! They stayed open and waited for my son! He was sent for an x-Ray that night and we got a call the next morning thankfully that it was fine just needed to rest for a couple of days! Dr. Feretti told us where to go for a brace and even called over to make sure the medical supply had it in stock!! My son was back in business within a few days and was able to wrestle his match!! I can't say enough good things!!! They are the kind of doctors that truly care about their patients! They just hired a new doctor who's super bubbly and friendly, Dr. Raufi. She's actually the daughter of one of the other doctors in the practice. Love seeing a mother-daughter team!! They have 3 docs, Dr. Raufi (she's the newest), Dr. Grenander (her mom), and Dr. Ferretti (male doc) They are all amazing!!!"
"Everyone there was very nice and friendly, the place was very clean, and the doctor was very friendly and nice."
"Great team of physicians. Homey feel to the practice - welcoming to young children. Really wonderful local practice."
"My three children have been patients at East Bay pediatric for over 14 years now. The quality care that my children have received is bar none. From the common cold to having a child with epilepsy, all have always been handled with the utmost care and concern. I am always able to get in a same-day sick visit, as a mother of three, I really appreciate that. I can safely say that this is a great practice to bring your child to."
"The comfort of this office is exceptional. From Dr. G to Dr. Ferretti, they are always supportive to moms and babies. They are open and direct while offering their time for advice and comfort. I will never take my children elsewhere."
"As a new mom and new to Rhode Island, I was nervous about finding the perfect care for my little one. After searching for practices that were accepting new patients, I finally came across East Bay Pediatrics. The staff here are super friendly and welcoming. They are very accommodating and scheduling an appointment is easy. The doctors here are very knowledgeable and I feel like my little ones are in good hands. I highly recommend!"
"Dr. Grenander (and Dr. Dennison before retiring) are fantastic pediatricians, both down-to-earth and practical which I appreciate. Appointments never feel rushed, ancillary staff there is great too."
