Expecting
JDC is currently accepting newborns into the practice. However, so that we can continue to offer our existing patients the care and attention that they deserve, JDC is no longer accepting families with existing children who wish to transfer their care from another practice. This will remain in effect until further notice.
Text4baby is a free* health information service delivered on your mobile phone, to help keep you and your baby healthy. JDC Pediatrics recommends this app, which will give you access to well-visit information, a personalized vaccination tracker, and appointment reminders. Click here for sign-up info.
Does your child always seem to have some kind of form or another to be completed? He may or may not need to be seen, depending on the type of form. Click here to find out what you will need to do.
The flu vaccine for the 2017-18 flu season is now available at JDC Pediatrics. We recommend that all children ages 6 months through 18 years receive this vaccine. Please call our office to schedule an appointment. Click here for more info on the flu vaccine.
The American Accademy of Pediatrics (AAP) is advising parents to stop giving fruit juice to children in the first year of life, saying the drink is not as healthful as many parents think. Click here for more info and age-group recommendations for fruit juice.
Previously the HPV vaccine was given as a 3-dose series for all eligible-aged children. Now only 2 doses are recommended for children age 9 through 14, with the doses separated by at least 6 months. Children who begin HPV vaccination at 15 years of age and older will still need 3 doses. We will send a reminder call to you when your child is due for their next dose.
Congratulations! We’d love to meet you and answer your questions before your baby arrives. If you'd like, you can schedule an appointment for a "prenatal visit" with us, where you will meet with one of our doctors, have your questions about the practice answered, and get a feel for the office. Appointments are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays between the hours of 9:00am and 2:00pm. We will not schedule these visits from October through March to prevent expectant mothers being exposed to flu and other viruses that are more prevalent during these months. Also, we typically have very limited openings during the months of July and August. Call us at (717) 791-2680 to set a date. This is a free service we provide for our expectant parents who are interested in enrolling with us; however, a prenatal visit is not required before enrolling.
 
We welcome new babies to our practice and becoming a patient is simple – first, call our office and pre-register with us. We need to make sure we participate with your insurance, so we will need to know the insurance held by both mother and father. Then, inform your Ob/Gyn prior to delivery that you have selected JDC Pediatrics. If you deliver at Harrisburg Hospital or Holy Spirit Hospital, the hospital will contact us and one of our physicians will see your baby in the hospital. If you deliver at another hospital, the hospital pediatrician will see your baby and then direct you to call our office and schedule an appointment upon discharge. New babies should be seen in our office within 2 weeks of discharge (some babies may need to be seen sooner – the physician will let you know).  
 
Important note for parents:  It is extremely important that you add your new baby to your health insurance policy once your baby is born. Most insurance plans have a 30 day grace period for newborns to be added. Once the grace period has expired, if the baby has not been added, the parent will be responsible for charges incurred. Please remember to bring your insurance card, copay, and patient forms to your first visit.
