Improving the Lives of Children with Genetic and Developmental Disorders

About Us

The Feingold Center for Children was established in 1984 to provide diagnosis and treatment to children born with birth defects, genetic diseases and intellectual disorders throughout the New England area.

In 2011 the clinical care aspects of The Center were transferred to Children's Hospital Boston in Waltham, MA where patients are now seen as part of the Division of Genetics.

The Center consists of physicians and consultants in Pediatrics and Genetics with ready access to Orthopedics, Cardiology, Neurology, Ophthalmology, Endocrinology, Craniofacial Surgery, Plastic Surgery and other specialties. In addition, the Center hosts satellite clinics at various locations throughout Massachusetts.

Since many of the children followed at the Center require the care of numerous specialists, appointments are coordinated as much as possible to decrease the necessity for frequent trips to the Center.

Genetic counseling is offered to prospective parents who are concerned about the possibility of genetic diseases occurring in their children.
