Dr. Peter Gergely hails from Nahant, MA—a tiny island town north of Boston. He attended local public schools until 7th grade, then went to Buckingham Browne & Nichols School in Cambridge, MA from 8th to 12th grades. He graduated Summa Cum Laude and attended Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH, where he was an Art and Biology major. He graduated Magna Cum Laude with Distinction in Biology. He took a year off and bicycled across Europe and then went to Tufts Medical School in Boston, MA. He joined the U.S. Army and trained at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., finishing a three-year residency in pediatrics with a concentration in childhood developmental pediatrics.
He went to West Point, NY for four years as a Captain, then Major, as a pediatrician at Keller Army Hospital. He then fell in love with the lower Hudson Valley and bought a house, opened a practice and here he stayed!
