Marion Mass, MD, is an urgent care pediatrician at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).
Dr. Mass has worked at CHOP since 2004, and in urgent care since 2017. Her favorite part of working in pediatric urgent care is being able to serve kids and their families “in a time of immediate need.”
She enjoys navigating family dynamics in the clinical setting and is quick to reassure parents who judge themselves too harshly. “Being a modern parent is hard,” she says. “I always tell parents: don’t stress over things you aren't doing. Focus on the wonderful things you are doing for your children.”
When she’s not working, Dr. Mass is passionate about family activities that promote wellness, such as organic gardening, cooking and fitness.
CHOP’s pediatric Urgent Care Centers provide fast, convenient care for children and teens with non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries. Typically, these are situations when your child can’t wait until the pediatrician’s office is open, but they don’t need the resources of an emergency department (ED). Urgent Care Centers are staffed by board-certified pediatricians and pediatric nurses with expertise in caring for children with urgent healthcare needs. The facilities offer onsite X-rays and testing to help with fast diagnosis and treatment plans.

Patient Experience Ratings
About the Patient Experience Rating System
The Patient Experience Rating is an average of all responses to the care provider related questions shown above from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
We are committed to true transparency. However, to ensure the comments are fair and correctly attributed, we review each one before posting to the website. We exclude entire comments that disclose patient's protected health information, are off-topic, or include other confidential or inappropriate content. Comments will appear on provider bios only if providers have a minimum number of comments.
Comments are shared internally for education purposes to ensure that we are doing our very best for the patients and families for whom we are privileged to care.
The comments are submitted by patients and families and reflect their views and opinions. The comments are not endorsed by and do not reflect the views of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
