What is a Pediatrician:
A pediatrician is a physician whose specific specialty is caring for children and young adults from birth to 22 years of age.  Pediatricians address acute and chronic illnesses, learning disabilities, behavioral issues and the growth and development of children.  Our goal is to help ensure that children grow into mentally and physically healthy, productive and happy adults.

Call Hour
Call Hour is available 365 days a year in the Sellersville office including all holidays and Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM at 215-257-2727.  Call Hour in the Harleysville office is available Monday thru Friday from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM at (215) 256-1999 .

At Pennridge Pediatrics, we believe in the safety and efficacy of the current vaccine schedule that is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Please note that our office will not deviate or provide alternative schedules to the published AAP schedule. Parents who wish to modify the vaccine schedule or not vaccinate at all, will be asked to find a pediatrician that agrees with their individual philosophy on vaccines. Please visit the CDC website or the CHOP Vaccine Education Center website listed below for more information on vaccines.

*Mental Health Assessment
Dr. Danielle Lee and Nurse Practitioner, Lindsey Baranik, have completed a seminar in Pediatric mental health with Reach Institute to assess conditions such as depression and anxiety in children 9+ years of age.  If interested, please call the office to inquire about the full details of this program.

Minor Surgical Procedures
At PPA we have a treatment room at both offices where we perform minor surgical procedures.  During the stressful moments after an injury, we offer the convenience of suturing or stapling lacerations at the office rather than turning to the emergency department.  In addition to this, we perform other minor procedures, such as in-grown toenail and wart removal, molluscum treatment, treatment of minor fractures, and ear piercing.

Asthma Consult
Does your child have asthma?  Do you have questions about his/her treatment and management?  We have appointments available for a full asthma consultation with our staff.  Your consultation will include education on how asthma affects the airways, proper technique of inhalers or nebulizers, medication management, and an asthma plan tailored to your child's needs.  Please call the office to set up your appointment!

Registered Dietician
Pat DiNunzio-Ruth is a licensed, registered dietician with over 30 years of experience in counseling individuals on nutritional issues, and she is seeing patients right here in our Harleysville office!

Pat is a graduate of Pennsylvania State University and completed a post-graduate clinical internship at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, MA.  Her professional experience includes work as a clinical dietician in hospitals, a consultant dietician for eating disorder treatment centers, and working with individuals in private and gastroenterology practices.  She also serves as the dietician for the Grand New Youth Program at Grand View Hospital.

Pat enjoys working with families to promote changes in eating habits, addressing not only food intake but also eating behaviors and activity patterns.  She strives to provide information on ways to nourish and nurture the body in a healthy way, identifying the specific needs of each individual and meeting your child's needs for growth and development.

Pat is a preferred provider for several insurance plans but there are a few plans that do not cover the cost of nutritional counseling by a registered dietician.  She recommends calling the Member Services number on the front of your insurance card to ask them if services are covered, how many visits the plan will cover, if there are any exclusions and, if there is a copay for the service.  If you do have a copay, this would be payable by check or cash at the time of the visit.

Pat is currently seeing patients every other Monday afternoon. Please call the front desk at our Sellersville office (215)257-2727 or our Harleysville office (215) 256-1999 for more information or to set up an appointment.  She looks forward to working with you!
