Dr. Stephen Krebs
retired from Carlisle Pediatric Associates January 1, 2017 after 40 years of
being a Carlisle pediatrician. Dr. Krebs told us “I have been blessed
with wonderful partners who have always prioritized the best interest of
children in our practice. I am deeply grateful for the patients I have met and treated,
the children I have seen grow, grow up and now become the adults impacting our
community, and the parents who have had confidence in me over the years of my
practice. Thank you so very much.” Dr. Krebs joined Carlisle Pediatric
Center in 1976 and later founded Carlisle Pediatric Associates along with Dr.
offers you personal care with the
availability and combined knowledge and experience of a group practice. Through
commitment to continuing education and membership in the American Academy of
Pediatrics, we strive to offer you the most current pediatric knowledge and
advances. Physicians from our practice serve as school physicians for the
Carlisle School District. Our goal is to provide comprehensive care for your
infants, children, and adolescents. We see patients from birth until nineteen
years of age or college graduation. Our pediatricians offer well child care,
school, sports and camp physicals, immunizations, consultations, and care for
acute and chronic illnesses.
Available from 9am-8pm Monday-Friday, if your child is ill, we will now have hours for WALK-IN URGENT SICK
visits. In addition to regular office hours we will have one designated doctor each day available for walk-in sick calls. You will still have the option to call the office to make a same day sick call appointment. Weekend hours:
Same day emergency sick call appointments will still be made on the weekends. These weekend appointments cannot be pre-scheduled. Phones will be answered starting at 7:30am on Saturdays and 11:30am on Sundays.
Our office closes for major holidays and
(which fall on a weekday)
so our staff can be with their families. However, to better serve our patients,
the office will have brief morning walk-in hours for EMERGENCY sick calls that
cannot wait until the office reopens for regular hours the next day.
Hours are usually at 10:00am on holidays. Call the office that morning
and the recording will confirm the time of emergency hours that day. The
only holiday the office does NOT open is Christmas Day.
Our physicians are participating with many insurance companies.
Please check with your insurance company or your employer to verify if your coverage is restricted on whom your child may see in order for them to pay your claims. This will ensure that your claims will be processed and paid correctly. If we are not considered “Participating” with your insurance there will be out-of-pocket expenses that you will be responsible for at the time-of-service.
We see children in our practice from their newborn period
until completion of their schooling. If your child continues their formal education beyond high school, we will continue to provide medical care until the advanced schooling is completed.
Our office telephone number is (717)
. Upon answering, a list of options
is given. Although this may seem impersonal, we have found that it allows for
more efficient communication. You may leave non-acute messages and requests for
medication refills on an answering system. This allows the staff answering the
phones more availability to talk with you when you need to schedule an
appointment or to talk with us regarding an acute situation. This number is
used to access your pediatricians during office hours as well as outside of
Outside of regular office hours
, we do have a pediatrician on call to answer questions and
to help you deal with problems that cannot wait until regular hours. Although
we are happy to help you work through problems during these times, we do ask
you to use this service for problems that need more immediate attention and
cannot wait until regular office hours. Matters such as prescription refills
and problems of a more chronic nature should wait until the office is open when
the physician has access to your child’s chart.
We look forward to being your child’s pediatricians,
getting to know you and your family,
and partnering with you in caring for your child.
