CARLISLE PEDIATRIC ASSOCIATES!
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. Our goal is to provide comprehensive care for your
infants, children, and adolescents. We see patients from birth through adolescence, until they are no longer students. Our pediatricians offer well child care,
school, sports and camp physicals, immunizations, consultations, and care for
acute and chronic illnesses.
Physicians from our practice serve as school physicians for the Carlisle School District.
As an additional option to scheduling same day sick visits we now also offer WALK-IN URGENT CARE visits
. EFFECTIVE APRIL 1, 2018 **
our walk-in times will be Monday through Friday
from 8:30 am to 11:00 am
and then again from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm
. These walk-in time slots should not be used for chronic, ongoing illnesses. Sick calls and work or drivers physicals
can be accommodated. We will have one main designated doctor each day available for these visits but there won’t be the ability to choose which provider you want for a walk-in type visit.
You will still have the option to call the office to make a same day sick call appointment, if choice of doctor or short wait times are important to you.
All complete well child physicals and vaccines MUST be scheduled visits due to staffing and time constraints.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.If your child is under 18 years of age and is coming to an appointment with someone other than a parent or legal guardian please send an authorization to treat note along with your child.
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, through adolescence
and until completion of their schooling. If your child continues their formal education beyond high school, we will continue to provide medical care until they have completed their undergraduate studies. At that time, they are no longer considered adolescents and are better cared for by physicians with training in adult medicine.
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 at any time, we do ask
you to use the after-hours service only for medical problems that require immediate attention and
cannot wait until regular office hours. Matters such as prescription refills
and ongoing medical problems should be addressed during regular business hours, when
the physician who knows your child best is available.
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.
