We at Pennridge Pediatrics are concerned with the health of infants, children and adolescents, their growth and development, and their opportunity to achieve full potential as adults. To foster this, we encourage regular well child care which includes annual physical exams, developmental assessments, vaccinations, and screening tests when indicated.
