December 03, 2018

Zahra Pediatrics, under the leadership of Ramlah Vahanvaty, MD, is now part of St. Luke’s University Health Network. As part of St. Luke’s, her patients will continue to receive the same quality health care in the same location, but with the additional support and services the Network provides.

Originally founded by Dr. Vahanvaty’s father, Moiz Mohyuddin, MD, Zahra Pediatrics has been part of the community for over 40 years. Dr. Vahanvaty is board-certified in pediatrics and a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Dr. Vahanvaty grew up in the Poconos and received her undergraduate degree from Muhlenberg College before pursuing her medical degree in Pakistan. She returned to the United States to complete her training in pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, and then back to the Poconos to join her father’s practice.

Along with a specialized interest in pediatric asthma and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Dr. Vahanvaty provides a full range of pediatric medical services ranging from comprehensive well-child visits, sport and school physicals, acute care for illness or injury to evaluation and treatment of ADHD/ADD and screening for autism and behavioral concerns.

Dr. Vahanvaty’s goal is to support parents as they nurture healthy, happy and confident kids from birth to 21 years of age. “I’m 100 percent committed to my patients and their families,” says Dr. Vahanvaty. “I take their trust and confidence in me very seriously and I feel privileged to be part of each patient’s growth and development as well as their overall health and happiness.”
