St. Luke's Coopersburg Pediatrics

St. Luke's Coopersburg Pediatrics treats young patients in a manner that is comfortable for the child and comforting for parents. We understand that children are not small adults: their developing bodies may require special medications and different medical treatments. Our pediatricians are pediatric specialists, having completed additional pediatric training beyond medical school. They are trained to be sensitive to the special health-care needs of children from birth through adolescence and into early adulthood.

Insurance/Referrals

Our office accepts most major insurances and managed care plans. Please bring all insurance information, including insurance cards, to all appointments. As your child's primary care physician, we will coordinate all of your child's medical care. Whenever medically necessary, we will refer you to a specialist and continue to coordinate your child's care with the consulting physician.

To ensure insurance payment, many insurance plans require a prior written referral before you may engage the services of a specialist. Otherwise, you may be held responsible for fees associated with your child's care. We may not issue retroactive referrals for care already rendered. If you have questions regarding referrals, please call our office.

Dr. Gibson - Early Childhood Literacy

 


Reading to your child, starting in infancy and throughout childhood, is so important for speech and language development and for school readiness.  It will also help develop your child's imagination and creativity.  Plus, it's a fun way to bond with your child, especially if you get into the habit of reading 20 to 30 minutes everyday.  This will encourage an early and hopefully lifelong love of reading.
