Advocare Merchantville Pediatrics urges please call us first rather than using the Emergency Department or Urgent Care Centers for non-life threatening issues, as there are many conditions that can be treated in the office. Please note the following precautionary measures our office is taking to protect you, your child, and our staff. Our waiting rooms are separated between sick and well. All books, magazines, and toys have been removed. The playhouse will be closed until further notice, which has saddened many of our patients. The office will be closed at lunchtime for a thorough cleaning. We are limiting well exams to the morning. We will be contacting you to reschedule afternoon well exams and also to confirm your existing morning well exam. We will have a tent outside if your child is very sick and needs to be seen in the morning. Please do not hesitate to call the office anytime for sick children. We also may ask to see you outside if you or your child is coughing or has a fever. We will see sick children from 1:00 p.m. to closing. Please do not hesitate to call us at any time. As always, your child's health is our main concern. We cannot stress enough that we are available 24/7 - call us first - at (856) 665-7337. As this is an ever-changing situation, please check our page frequently or call our office for updates.
