Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine

John J. Jakimczyk, M.D.

Jay Jakimczyk is a native of Medford, Massachusetts, and if you listen closely, you can hear the remnants of a once-potent Boston accent. Dr. Jakimczyk remained in Massachusetts to earn his undergraduate degree at Harvard and to complete his medical education and training at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, including a year as Chief Resident. He and his wife Wendy, who is also a physician, enjoy the delicate balance of sampling new restaurants and exercising.  A die-hard Boston sports fan, Dr. Jakimczyk grew up admiring the local professional sports icons.  The two athletes he admires most now are his own two children who have had to endure his persistent attempts to coach youth sports.
