Dr. jeffrey boxer
“I grew up in a small town in the Catskill Mountains of New York. In 1967, I entered Colgate University with no intention of becoming a doctor. I graduated with a degree in geology and then surprisingly went to medical school at Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse where I met and later married my wife Wendy. We moved to Wilmington, Delaware in 1975, where I started training to become a family physician. My pediatric rotation changed both my plans and my life. In 1979, Wendy and I, and our daughter, Elisha, moved back north New Hampshire. Our son Matthew was born there in 1980. I worked in the same pediatric practice for 37 years and served as Chief of Pediatrics at Monadnock Community Hospital. I returned to Delaware in 2016 to be closer to family and to continue what I love to do. I practice general pediatrics, caring for the physical, emotional, and behavioral health of children from birth through adolescence. I strongly feel that the most important job as a pediatrician is to listen to parents and patients, and to provide them with the guidance and education they need. My activities include photography, hiking, biking, running, and kayaking. I also hope to rekindle my interest in rocks, fossils and lapidary.”
