St. Luke’s Anderson Pediatrics, which offers convenient access to high-quality pediatric care in the Easton and Bethlehem Township areas, is accepting new patients. This new practice is located in the St. Luke’s Anderson Campus Medical Office Building at 1700 St. Luke’s Blvd., Suite 403. 

“The location of St. Luke’s Anderson Pediatrics provides easy access to care for the area’s growing population,” says Dianne Jacobetz, MD, St. Luke’s Regional Medical Director. “Conveniently located near a St. Luke’s OB/GYN office, the pediatric practice offers an easy transition for families.”

St. Luke’s Anderson Pediatrics is open Monday through Friday, and has on-call providers available by phone “after hours” and for emergencies. The practice provides routine pediatric care for patients ages newborn to 21 years old that includes well visits, sick visits, physicals, management of ADHD, simple procedures such as wart removal and staple removal, and more.

“It also offers pre-birth visits so families can meet and develop a relationship with their pediatrician before they give birth,” says Jessika Haynos, St. Luke’s Pediatric Service Line Manager. “As a two-provider practice, families will get to know their doctor very well.”

St. Luke’s Anderson Pediatrics’ board-certified pediatricians are Vhada Sharma, MD and Samone Nore, MD.
