ChristianaCare has added Dover, Delaware-based medical practice Adolescent Medicine & General Pediatric Allergy, PA, to its network of pediatric services with the new name ChristianaCare Pediatrics at Dover.

Children from birth to 18 years old in Dover and surrounding communities can now benefit from the advantages of the highest quality pediatric care that is connected to Delaware’s largest health system.

“Parents can be confident their children will receive exceptional, personalized care at all of our pediatric locations,” said David Paul, M.D., chair of the Department of Pediatrics at ChristianaCare.

“All of our practice locations offer a welcoming environment where parents and children can build a trusting relationship and seek medical advice. This practice has an outstanding reputation of service to the Dover community, and we’re proud that they’ve become part of our ChristianaCare family of services.

“If you’re looking for a new provider for pediatric services, we look forward to meeting you,” he said.
