Dr. Jane Dennison retiring from East Bay Pediatrics

Dear East Bay Family,

With great excitement I, Jane Dennison, want to inform you that Ariana Raufi, MD is joining our practice beginning September 1, 2018.  She is Dr. Grenander’s daughter and I have known her since infancy.

After thirty-eight years in pediatric practice, thirty-four of them at East Bay Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, I am shifting my clinical time to work with newborns and their families at Women and Infants Hospital.  I will be a member of the Mother Baby Unit Care Team, and will also be teaching and developing a curriculum for residents and medical students for newborn nursery rotations.

It is with some sadness and nostalgia that I leave our Barrington location.  The many years I have spent there gave me the privilege of learning from you, our families and patients.  My heartfelt thanks extend to all of you, parents, grandparents, infants, children, adolescents and young adults, who have shown me your joys, sorrows, and challenges.  It has been the greatest honor to be a small part of your lives.

I am thrilled that Dr. Ariana Raufi is returning to Rhode Island from her pediatric training in Chicago to join us.  Please welcome her and enjoy her enthusiasm, energy, and new knowledge base as she discovers through all of you the joys and challenges of caring for our community.  As Louis Armstrong sings, “It’s a Wonderful World!”

With my love and appreciation,
Jane Mackenzie Dennison
