The right choice for your children - an easy choice for you!
At Pediatric Alliance, we know children. It’s all we do! At the Arcadia division we take care of children from birth through college. We believe that infants, children and adolescents are different from adults and require a physician with training specific to their needs. As board certified pediatricians we provide that special level of care and expertise.
We have office hours six days a week. If you feel your child needs to be seen by a doctor, please call early in the day so we can accommodate your scheduling requests. Registered nurses are also available during office hours to discuss acute care concerns, routine child care questions, child development, and other child care issues.
24-Hour Emergency Coverage
One of our physicians is on call at all times. We ask that calls made after the office is closed be limited to true emergencies only. Our answering service will contact one of our physicians for you. Please call our main office number to access the answering service: 412-366-7337
Highest Quality of Care
All of our physicians are board certified in pediatrics. We are on staff at Children’s, Magee-Womens and Allegheny General Hospitals. We take care to stay up-to-date and knowledgeable about the latest recommendations and guidelines set forth by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
