Welcome to Advocare Parsippany Pediatrics!

 

Announcements:


Beginning June 24, 2019, our office will be implementing significant changes to our technology to better serve our patients and families.  There will be limited appointments available between June 24 and July 14 due to this process, but we will do our best to minimize any impact on serving your healthcare needs. We ask for your patience with our providers and staff as we undergo this transformation.   

 

It is with mixed emotions that we say goodbye to Emily Keim, CPNP,  as a member of our Advocare Parsippany Pediatrics Team. Emily is known to many of our families as she began working in our practice in 2014 as a registered nurse and then, upon earning her CPNP in 2018, became our newest Nurse Practitioner to join our providers. 

Although Emily has thoroughly enjoyed caring for her patients here, she has decided to focus her nurse practitioner career working within the specialty of Developmental Pediatrics @ Goryeb Children's Hospital. Her last day with us was May 31, 2019.  We thank Emily for her many contributions to our practice during her time with us. She will be greatly missed as a colleague and healthcare professional. 



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.
