Office News:




Our office is closed on Christmas & Thanksgiving. For "observed" holidays the practice will have brief morning walk-in hours for EMERGENCY sick calls only. These hours are for patients who cannot wait until the office reopens for regular hours the next day. Hours start at 10:00am for those holidays. If you need to be seen, please be at the office at that time.

Here at Carlisle Pediatrics, we understand that having a primary care physician is vital to your health and well-being. Transitioning to an adult doctor my be difficult at times. As a result, we are changing our policy and will continue to see ALL patients until the age of 21. At the age of 21, if you are not in secondary education, you will need to transfer to adult medicine. If you continue your education, we will remain your primary care provider, if you choose. You will also need to transfer out of the practice if you marry or have a child. We hope this will make your transfer to adulthood easier.
