Primary Care, Newtown, is a member of the CHOP Care Network. We are committed to providing the highest quality care for your children.
Our practice consists of four physicians and one nurse practitioner. Learn about each of our providers»
Pediatricians are available to discuss ongoing medical and behavioral issues. Because our pediatricians are with patients in the office, answers to acute questions should be directed to our triage nurses by calling 215-968-6844 and pressing option 1 to speak with a nurse.
If you want to discuss a non-urgent matter with your pediatrician, this can be initiated during office hours with our nursing staff by requesting a non-acute call from your pediatrician.
When such a request is made, please be sure to tell us the best times to reach you—day and evening. Also include multiple phone numbers (home, work, cell) as appropriate. Requests should not be related to any matter that cannot safely wait over several days.
All of our physicians are board-certified pediatricians. They are active members of the medical staff for our local community hospitals, Saint Mary Medical Center and Lower Bucks Hospital. Our pediatricians are available to provide care for infants in the newborn nursery at both of these institutions. If you have questions concerning such care and would like to meet with a physician, we offer two "Meet the Doctor" sessions a month. Please call our office for dates and times. These sessions are also available for parents of children of any age who are interested in our practice.
For children and adolescents requiring hospital admission, we maintain close contact with the pediatric staff at all of the local pediatric hospitals. Historically, most of our patients choose to use the facilities of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia or Saint Mary Medical Center, which has a pediatric emergency room.
Our nursing staff is trained to answer routine questions concerning childcare and common illnesses. Our nurses are available by phone Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
When you call, the nurse will help you determine the best approach for your child, whether it is phone advice or an appointment with a provider. For more complex problems, the nurses consult with the pediatricians. If you need more than one child seen, please let us know when you schedule the sick visit.
Our practice manager is available to discuss concerns or questions regarding the practice. Our practice manager is responsible for making recommendations for improvements and maintaining a positive and productive relationship with our patients, staff and our pediatricians.
Our receptionists will greet you at our front desk, assist you with making appointments and direct you to the most helpful person for any insurance or billing questions. They can assist with any referral/insurance questions.
