A Message from... Dr. Bob and Dr. Dan
Dr. Bob & Dr. Dan are on staff at Abington Memorial Hospital. For our families delivering at Abington, we are happily working with the neonatology group, who will see our babies in the hospital. We ask that you call our office when you know you and your baby are being discharged to set up an office appointment 2-3 days after you leave the hospital.

We have set aside times for prenatal visits for parents who would like to meet Dr. Bob, Dr. Dan and the Andorra Pediatrics Staff. We will give you a tour of our newly expanded office. There is no charge for these visits. Please call ahead to schedule an appointment.
Thank you for choosing Andorra Pediatrics as your medical home for your family. It is our sincere hope that you are treated in a courteous and professional manner at all times by our staff and that we provide the care you expect to your complete satisfaction.
Dr. Dan Recommended by Patient in MetroKids Magazine
Daniel "Dr. Dan" Selig
When MetroKids asked their readers to recommend their Favorite Docs for Children, an Andorra Pediatrics patient replied with...

"A lovely family-run practice with a kid-friendly waiting room. Even though it is a busy (read popular!) office, your child always gets 100% from Dan. Following a bad experience with a large, impersonal practice, we went to Dan on the advice of a work colleague. What a difference! No more rude reception staff, "leave a voicemail for a call back within 2 hours" or having to practically beg for a sick-child appointment for a very sick child. Dr Dan is the best!"

Vaccine Information From The CDC
Vaccine Information Statements: (VIS's) are information sheets produced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that explain to vaccine recipients, their parents, or their legal representatives both the benefits and risks of a vaccine. Federal law requires that VIS's be reviewed before any vaccines are given. Dr. Bob and Dr. Dan would like to particularly mention the following vaccines:
Hepatitis A Vaccine
Rotavirus Vaccine
Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis) Vaccine
Tdap and Meningococcal vaccine new recommendations

New Meningococcal B Vaccine Info
There is a new Meningococcal B vaccine we are giving to seniors in high school that requires 2 doses, a month apart. The series should be completed before a child enters college. Current college students should call our office to get this new vaccine.

Most adolescents should have already received the Meningococcal vaccine that covered 4 of the 5 strains (A,C,W,Y) that can also cause a serious infection (11 yrs old and 16 yrs old).

Meningococcal disease is a life-threatening illness caused by bacteria that infect the bloodstream (sepsis) and the lining that surrounds the brain and spinal cord (meningitis). N. meningitidis is a leading cause of bacterial meningitis. The bacteria are transmitted from person to person through respiratory or throat secretions (e.g., by coughing, kissing, or sharing eating utensils). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 500 total cases of meningococcal disease were reported in the United States in 2012; of those cases, 160 were caused by serogroup B.

Recent outbreaks of serogroup B Meningococcal disease on a few college campuses have heightened concerns for this potentially deadly disease.
Choosing an infant formula can be a challenge for parents because of the many options and price ranges available. Infant formula can be broadly separated into 2 categories: National Infant Formula (eg, Enfamil®, Similac®, etc) and Store Brand Infant Formula (eg, Parent’s Choice™, etc). The primary difference between these 2 categories is price. Store Brand Infant Formulas are required to meet the same standards and guidelines as National Brand Infant Formulas, so parents can have peace of mind that Store Brands are held to the same standards of any other formula brand.

Calcium and Vitamin D - Is This Important for my Child?
National survey data consistently show that most US children older than 8 years fail to achieve the recommended intake of calcium. Maintaining adequate calcium intake during childhood and adolescence is necessary for the attainment of peak bone mass, which may be important in reducing the risk of fractures and osteoporosis later in life.

Vitamin D Deficiency Not Just A Problem For Northerners
While a number of studies have documented low vitamin D levels in children living in northern climates, a new study shows it is also a problem in sunny climates of the southern U.S., particularly for black adolescents. More than half (56.4 percent) of the adolescents had vitamin D insufficiency (Vitamin D level 20-30), and 28.8 percent had vitamin D deficiency (Vitamin D level under 20) . Vitamin D levels were lowest in winter compared to other seasons of the year. Black teenagers had significantly lower vitamin D levels in every season of the year compared to white teenagers. Adolescents with a higher body mass index had lower vitamin D levels.

Information for "New" or "Soon-To-Be" Parents
As a service to their patients, Dr. R. Selig and Dr. D. Selig have written several parental handbooks or booklets. These parental handbooks provide valuable information for parents that have newborns or children up to the age of two years old.

"Our goal is to help parents participate in the care of their children. We believe it is important to spend the time necessary to educate parents and caregivers about the daily problems that may be encountered when raising a family."

Andorra Pediatrics has made these booklets available for you to review on this web site. You can find the booklets under the Hand-Outs category at the links called Taking Your Baby Home and Baby's First Two Years.
The material on this website is intended to present information relating to the Office of Andorra Pediatrics. This information is not a substitute for medical advice. Please do not send e-mails concerning your children if they are sick. No medical questions will be addressed from this web site. If you have any questions or concerns, please call our office.
