Compassionate, Comprehensive Care for Children and Young Adults
Welcome to Advocare Society Hill Pediatrics!
Since the birth of our practice on Pine Street in 1986, Advocare Society Hill Pediatrics has proudly provided state-of-the-art pediatric care to Philadelphia's Center City and Society Hill communities, as well as families in the greater Philadelphia region.
As our patients grew, so did our practice. In 1992, we moved into our present office on Locust Street, where we continue to deliver compassionate, comprehensive care to healthy and chronically ill children from newborn to age 18. All of our doctors are on staff at Pennsylvania Hospital, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
At Advocare Society Hill Pediatrics, you'll find that all of our board certified physicians, nurses, and staff are also mothers, so we know that being a parent can be extraordinarily challenging, rewarding, and sometimes even frustrating! As parents, we share your fears and joys. As pediatricians, we focus on the whole child and the whole family, helping parents and guardians with both the medical and psychological aspects of child and family health. Our commitment is to partnering with parents in their children's care, health, and growth; with well visits, routine immunizations, preventive counseling, and the coordination of subspecialty care as needed.
We are especially pleased to be known as "the doctor's doctor" and to serve the families of other health care professionals with routine care as well as with diagnosing difficult situations. We work to earn their trust, and yours, with an extraordinary commitment to the finest pediatric care.
We are also delighted that Advocare Society Hill Pediatrics reflects and embraces Philadelphia's rich ethnic, racial, and cultural diversity. As active members of our community, we are deeply committed to the good health of our patients and our city.
