Early Access Returns!
Early Access self-scheduling returns on July 10th for weekday morning appointments at our South Street office. The feature will be expanded to our Bala Cynwyd and Fishtown locations after Labor Day.
Early Access appointments can be self-scheduled on our website for children who have experienced a new illness (within the past 48 hours) and worsening symptoms. Early Access is not appropriate for children with chronic conditions, with symptoms lasting for more than 48 hours or as follow-up visit for a condition already discussed with your provider.
The Early Access self-scheduling link will be available on our website Sunday – Thursday evenings beginning at 7:30pm and will remain available until 8:00am the following morning, or until all of the available appointment slots have been filled. The link will allow you to self-schedule your appointment for the following/same weekday morning only.
Our Family is Growing Again!
We are excited to welcome Diana Karnilaw, NP, to the CCP team!
Diana joins us after having spent 5 years at a practice in Colorado, returning to her University of Pennsylvania roots – and closer to her husband’s family – last year. Her real estate agent pointed out our Fishtown office while they were house hunting, and the rest is history!
Diana will see patients in both our Center City (South Street) and Fishtown locations.
Please say hello, introduce yourself and help us in welcoming Diana!
Happy Birthday to CCP!
Remember 2008? Barack Obama’s historic run to the White House? Michael Phelp’s record setting Beijing Olympics? WALL-E’s groundbreaking animation? And, of course, the opening of Center City Pediatrics!
That’s right, this month we turn 15.
We had big dreams that summer, starting out with a handful of exam rooms on South Street, 2 providers and a small admin team. In the years since, we have been honored by the opportunity to care for your children and grateful to grow alongside them. Thank you for making us part of your family!
Mental Health Care Connections, Simplified
We are pleased to partner with Quartet Health beginning this summer, a platform designed to simplify and expedite the process to connect to mental health and substance abuse resources.
Our providers can now refer patients via this system, which will work directly with families to match them to available resources supporting a wide variety of mental and behavioral health concerns. This will greatly reduce wait times in getting appointments with high-quality mental health providers in your insurance network, and ensure that the provider is the right fit for your child. Additionally, Quartet shares medical records with our office directly, so our care coordination doesn’t miss a beat.
Our Mild Winter Means Summer Ticks Abound
Summer adventures mean more time spent outdoors – sun, fun, and…bugs! Yes, tick season is upon us, but they don’t have to ruin your plans. In the latest Ask Nurse Julie, our Nursing Manager shares tips to keep these unwanted guests from crashing your summer plans:

New Class Supports Moms Returning to Work!
We are excited to introduce a new class to our calendar this summer – Preparing to Return to Work as a Working Mom.
Lead by ICF-Certified coach Coral Edwards, this 90-minute interactive course will include an overview of what to anticipate and prepare for – both at home and at work – when transitioning from new parent to working parent.
