COVID-19 (Coronavirus) UPDATE 3/21/20



  • We are happy to announce that our physicians now have the ability to perform a telemedicine visit for certain visits.  You can have a visit from home! Please call the office or go through our answering service, and we’ll put a message through to the doctor to make the decision if a telemedicine visit is appropriate. 

  • Due to the federal and state regulations of what is considered non-essential, we are limiting our well child visits to 5 years of age and under that require immunizations. Well visits are seen in a separate room from any sick visits we have in our schedule. 

  • We are seeing sick visits based on telephone triage. Please call our office for further information and concerns. 

  • Our office is unable to perform testing for COVID-19. However, our physicians can make the decision to send for testing to the local sites based on symptoms. A telemedicine visit may be appropriate to determine this. If you are concerned because your child has symptoms, please call the office and we will determine the next steps. 

  • Our hours will vary over the next few weeks as daily changes are made due to COVID 19. We will continue to keep you updated. Please call the office or check the Announcements page of our website. Our staff and physicians are always available to help you. We will all get through this together!

  • Governor Wolf has ordered a 14 day shut down in Montgomery County of non-essential business.  As a primary care physician, this DOES NOT apply to our business and we will remain open for our patients. We will continue to see our well child visits and any minor sick visits. We are asking that any child that has a fever or cough to please stay home to limit your exposure to others.  While we currently do not have telehealth capabilities, we would like to offer an option through Nemours CareConnect. CareConnect puts you in touch with a board-certified pediatrician through your smart phone, tablet or computer. Please visit Nemours CareConnect online for more information.

  • The PA Health Department has stated that there are commerical labs that are performing testing through which your physicians can place orders. While this is true that LabCorp and Quest have testing available for COVID-19, we do not have the capabilities to safely obtain specimens in our office. We have no personal protective equipment such as masks or gowns and are unable to get them through any of our medical suppliers. We will continue to take phone calls and do our best to direct you to the appropriate source for answers. 

  • Please know that we will continue to care for our well child patients as it is essential to continue to protect them from other communicable diseases. We are asking that if your child is sick, you stay home and treat them symptomatically unless you feel that they need urgent care.  

  • We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and update as necessary. Thank you for your patience in this matter.

Recent Mumps Outbreak Information



  • Make sure you and your family are up to date on your MMR vaccine. If you have been in close contact with someone that has contracted the mumps, your local public health authorities or institution will contact you and might recommend that you get an additional dose. These groups are usually those who are likely to have close contact, such as sharing sport equipment or drinks, kissing, or living in close quarters, with a person who has mumps

  • Your local public health authorities will reach out to you to let you know that you/your child may have been exposed and should receive this dose. If you have not been contacted, then you are not part of this group.  If your child already has two doses of MMR, it is not necessary to seek out vaccination unless you are part of this group.

  • If your child is a college student and the local public health authorities have contacted you or your child to warn of possible exposure, they can go to the health center at their school to receive the additional dose of MMR. 

  • If you are unsure of your child immunization status, please call our office during normal business hours and we will be happy to check the immunization record. We do not have access to these records after hours.
