Personal Pediatrics is a small private pediatric practice dedicated to the health of patients from newborns through young adulthood. The practice was started in 1971 by Dr. Harvey Kolker who has subsequently been joined by Doctors Jennifer & Lauren Byrne. Having three Doctors on staff allows us to have excellent continuity of care & create very close relationships with all of our patients. The experience of our physicians, as well as their warmth and compassion, has kept families in our practice for years. So much so that when they grow up and have their own children, they continue to entrust their care to us. We have numerous second, and even third generations in our practice. We take pride in the “Personal” of Personal Pediatrics & your name is remembered in our office.
The doctors are always available by phone during the day no matter what questions you may have. A sick child will always be seen the same day as you call. Our physicians call you personally with the results of any blood work or radiological studies. If your child has to be admitted to the local hospitals, our doctors will take care of them there.
We continue to improve our education and go to weekly conferences in order to stay abreast of medical advances and changing recommendations. Our goal is to provide parents with encouragement, education and support while providing good medical care for your children during illness and throughout their healthy development.
We invite both expectant parents to schedule interviews with our Doctors to learn more about the practice. Taking care of families and helping them as they grow is our privilege. We look forward to the day when our family will meet your family.
