There continue to be no local cases of measles. Please contact us if you are planning international travel and your child is either unimmunized against measles or if he/she has not had their second booster dose of MMRV. Babies 6-12 months of age may receive their first dose early. Ideally, immunization should occur at least 2 weeks prior to travel. You may also want to consider these precautions when traveling to NY state - specifically Rockland County and Brooklyn (Williamsburg and Borough Park), NY.

MHP is thrilled to welcome Dr. Sarah O'Connor to our practice. Sarah was born and raised in New Jersey. She ventured to New Mexico for undergraduate work at the University of New Mexico and was awarded a BS in biology with a minor in psychology. She attended medical school at Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine in the California bay area and returned to New Mexico for her pediatric residency. After completing residency, she worked at a pediatric urgent care clinic in Albuquerque. In 2010, she and her family settled in the Boston area. She enjoyed working in a primary care office in Watertown and caring for newborns at the St. Elizabeth’s Hospital nursery. She enjoys caring for children from newborn through teenage years and is passionate about early childhood and preventive care. For the past five years she has been an important member of Yogman Pediatrics, Cambridge, MA. Due to her family’s relocation to the North Shore, we are thrilled to have her join our practice. In her free time Dr. O'Connor likes to explore New England with her husband and 2 daughters.
