Carolyn J. Sedor, MD- July 1, 2022

To my patients and families,

I will be retiring from my position here at Wilmington Pediatrics as of November 1, 2022.  Caring for young families, children and teens has been a privilege.  I am inspired every day by the work parents do to raise healthy children, sometimes under very trying circumstances. 

Deciding to retire after 30 years here in Wilmington was difficult.  I will, however, have more time to spend with my own children who now live in 3 different states.  I am also looking forward to more outdoor activities including hiking and gardening.  Your child’s health is important to me. Please know the other providers Drs. Andrew, Carson, Nene, Stephens and Tanguay will still be here to care for you.

The staff at Wilmington Pediatrics is easily available to answer questions and to help you transfer to one of our other Pediatricians.

It has been a joy to be your pediatrician.

Sincerely,

Carolyn J. Sedor, MD


Sandy Stephens, MD

Dr. Sandy Stephens joined Wilmington Pediatrics in its infancy, in 1992. Originally from New York, she attended several art schools before landing at Skidmore College. There she discovered her passion for science and, through a work study program with developmentally delayed children, her love of children. After a brief foray in Massachusetts as a nanny for a chocolate consultant, she attended Albert Einstein College of Medicine. From the start, she was pulled towards pediatrics and continued to be inspired by the vast potential and resiliency of children and families.  She decided to return to Boston and did her residency at Boston City Hospital (now Boston Medical Center), which prepared her for the multi-faceted challenges of pediatric health care. It was also where she met Drs. Sarah Andrew and Carolyn Sedor. Following the birth of her first child, she joined them at Wilmington Pediatrics and has enjoyed being a part of such a vibrant practice.

As a general pediatrician, Dr Stephens  adores babies just as much as she loves guiding teenagers through adolescence. She is board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics, a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and a member of the Massachusetts Medical Society. Currently, she serves as the Medical Director of Wilmington Pediatrics.

 

Dr. Stephens is a dedicated mom, devoted partner and enthusiastic caretaker to a brood of animals and while she is rarely without her Kindle, she still finds a myriad of way to nurture her artsy side.
