Emergency Preparedness and Pets

Pets are a beloved part of many families in our practice. In the same way that you consider all the ways to keep your family safe, it's important to have an emergency plan in place for your furry, fluffy, and/or feathered friends.

Spring and Summer are just around the corner!
Whether it's spring sports or summer camp, your child will need an up to date physical to participate in all of those warm weather activities. Beat the rush! Call to schedule your child's appointment today at (215)-638-0555.

Satisfaction Survey now online. Please participate!
This month if you pay a visit to our office, you may receive an email asking for feedback about your visit. We're asking that you take 3 minutes to complete the survey because the information really helps focus on improving quality in our office.  Thanks in advance for your help!
Does your child have food allergies?

About 8% of all children have food allergies [AAP], and if you are the parent of a child with food allergies, the best thing you can do is be prepared. The AAP recently created a 2-page download tool that parents can use to make sure a plan is outlined. 

Patient Information Update
It is important that EVERY time you come to the office that you let us know if any of your child's information  has changed, including home address, email information, and an accurate phone number.
