Welcome to Advocare Parsippany Pediatrics!
Flu Vaccinations for the 2019-2020 flu season: We recommend influenza vaccinations annually for ALL of our patients who are at least 6 months of age. The manufacturer for our flu vaccine supply just informed us of a delay in shipping the bulk of our supply (despite early-ordering). We anticipate delivery no later than mid-October (flu illness typically begins in mid-December in NJ). We will post available flu clinic dates as soon as we have a definitive delivery date. Thank you for your patience.
Since July 11, 2019, Megumi Tsuda -- a 3rd year medical student from Sidney Kimmel School of Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University -- joins our team weekly. Dr Kahn and Dr Handler are Clinical Instructors of Pediatrics at SKSM/TJU.
Advocare Parsippany Pediatrics serves families with state-of-the-art care for children from birth through young adulthood. Established in 1978, we take pride in delivering pediatric care that is prompt, attentive, and personalized to meet your family’s needs. Our team includes four board-certified pediatricians, a pediatric nurse practitioner, and nursing and office staff all dedicated to making you and your children feel welcome and comfortable in our office.
Our comprehensive care begins in the newborn nursery and continues with ongoing checkups. During these “well visits” we monitor growth, nourishment, and physical, developmental, and emotional progress. When children are ill, same-day appointments are available so that children may be evaluated promptly. We offer early-evening appointments four weekdays each week and keep our phones open to parents through lunchtime. For children experiencing complex medical issues, we coordinate care with excellent specialists to manage chronic or critical conditions. In the event that children require hospitalization, Dr. Alan Koenigsberg, Dr. Daniel Kahn, Dr. Adam Handler, and Dr. Jennifer Lam are all on staff at Goryeb Children’s Hospital at Morristown Medical Center, where our commitment to high quality healthcare includes patient care as well as training medical students and pediatric residents. Janel Post, APN, a nurse practitioner on our team at Advocare Parsippany Pediatrics for over 10 years, is certified to provide lactation consultations to support our breastfeeding patients.
We appreciate your fears and understand the challenges of raising children. You may find answers to many questions about children’s health and development on our informative website, which also includes Useful Links to other valuable resources. If you need personal assistance, please contact us.
For more than three decades, it has been our privilege to be entrusted by families with their children’s well-being. Our goal is to partner with parents to provide the best possible pediatric care in the most comforting environment. We are here to heal your children whenever possible, protect them from preventable diseases and injuries, comfort them when they are in need, direct you toward resources that you may find useful, ensure that your child’s full potential is reached, and help you enjoy your role as a parent. We look forward to welcoming you to the Advocare Parsippany Pediatrics family.
