Dr. Thomas Wadzinski Joins Fairview Pediatrics
CHICOPEE — Dr. Thomas Wadzinski has joined Dr. James Bell, Dr. Amy Pelletier, Dr. Hanna Awkal, and nurse practitioner Mary Andaloro on the provider staff at Fairview Pediatrics. Board-certified in general pediatrics and pediatric endocrinology, Wadzinski will be able to provide both primary-care and pediatric-endocrinology services to his patients.
“We are very pleased to announce that Dr. Wadzinski is joining us,” said Bell, owner and medical director at Fairview Pediatrics, “as it allows us to not only improve our primary-care availability to our patients, but to expand our services to any child in the area in need of an endocrinologist. This is the beginning of an exciting new direction for our practice, as this is the first time that we have offered specialist services.”
Wadzinski earned both his medical degree and his Ph.D. in biomedical sciences from UMass Medical School in Worcester, and completed his pediatric residency at Baystate Medical Center. He recently completed a pediatric-endocrinology fellowship at Baystate Medical Center, including service as an adjunct research assistant professor at UMass Amherst. His fellowship involved research in endocrine disruptors, community-outreach activities with local school nurses, and a quality-improvement project aimed at improving follow-up care for high-risk diabetics.
A member of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Endocrine Society, and an associate member of the Pediatric Endocrine Society, Wadzinski has also authored several articles and abstracts in the fields of endocrinology and cell biology. He is skilled in diagnostic procedures and treatments available for children with endocrine disorders, including short stature, early pubertal development, thyroid hormone abnormalities, and adrenal insufficiency. He will not be seeing patients who have diabetes mellitus at this time.
He is accepting new patients as both a pediatric primary-care physician and as a pediatric-endocrinology specialist at Fairview Pediatrics, located at 1176 Memorial Dr. in Chicopee. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call (413) 593-1333.
