  • Good Luck, Dr. P!

    We congratulate Dr. Andy Pryharski on his retirement from Quincy Pediatrics at the end of June.

    Dr. P joined the practice in July, 1972 along with Drs. Kuperstein, Zonis, and Russell Irons. He has worked tirelessly for our practice and patient families for the past 46 years, and we wish him luck as he and Wendy enjoy their children and grandchildren as well as the beaches of Maine and the Cape!

    We will miss his companionship and say goodbye with his famous quote for us at the end of each day—"Hope they’re good to Ya, Andy!"
