Chestnut Hill Appointment Information

New patients

If you are expecting a new baby and would like to arrange a prenatal visit to discuss your child’s care and help you choose a pediatrician, please call the office. Our staff would be happy to answer your questions or arrange a visit to meet our team.

To build personal relationships with our patients, we ask each family to select one primary clinician/provider who coordinates their care and develops a relationship over time. This relationship will be maintained as your child grows unless you request a change.

MyCHOP

MyCHOP is a free service that offers patients/parents secure online access to portions of their or their child’s medical record using a web browser or mobile app. With a MyCHOP account you can:

  • Make appointments
  • Request medication renewals/refills
  • Send non-urgent medical questions
  • View test results
  • View/print immunizations

Please speak to our Patient Service Representatives to sign up for an account.

Video visits

CHOP Primary Care, Chestnut Hill, offers video visits as an alternative to some in-person visits when it is clinically safe and appropriate to do so. Telehealth video visits can be a good option for many medical appointments, including consultations for certain acute issues and symptoms, follow-up visits to see how a treatment or medication is working, urgent care visits and more. Your child’s provider will work with you to determine what visits can safely and effectively be done by video.

Well visits

Routine well-child visits/physicals are important because they allow your pediatrician to examine your child holistically, assess their physical and emotional needs, support their growth and development, and intervene quickly if any issues arise.

Well visits can be scheduled for new and established patients. Please call six months in advance to book a well visit.
