Caring for the Health and Spirit of Children | Phone: (978) 342-4437 | Email:




Welcome to Neighborhood Pediatrics! We have been providing care in North Central Mass since 1991. We pride ourselves in providing personal care to our patients in a small office setting.

Dr. Knight:

Dr. Lynette Knight has been a local pediatrician on the staff at HealthAlliance Hospital since 1989. She graduated from U.C.L.A. School of Medicine in Los Angeles and moved to the East Coast, completing her pediatric residency at Boston City Hospital. Dr. Knight was attracted to the Tri-City area because it offered a smaller family oriented community where she could raise her children in a more nurturing environment. Dr. Knight instructs UMass Family practice residents in the office. Dr Knight’s interests include a variety of medical and mental health issues from acne to ADHD. She enjoys outdoor activities, such as skiing, hiking and biking.
