What's New?

  • Children should ride in a rear-facing car safety seat as long as possible, up to the limits of their car safety seat. This will include virtually all children under 2 years of age and most children up to age 4.
  • Once they have been turned around, children should remain in a forward-facing car safety seat up to that seat's weight and length limits. Most seats can accommodate children up to 60 pounds or more.
  • When they exceed these limits, child passengers should ride in a belt-positioning booster seat until they can use a seat belt that fits correctly.
  • Once they exceed the booster limits and are large enough to use the vehicle seat belt alone, they should always use a lap and shoulder belt.
  • All children younger than 13 years should be restrained in the rear seats of vehicles for optimal protection.
If you are a patient of Dr. Rinaldi's practice and are interested in joining Kressly Pediatrics, here are some things to consider:
1. Please make sure we participate in your insurance
2. Please review our information to see if your family is a good fit for our practice.
3. If ANY of your children has already been seen in our practice for call coverage, please do not create a new account.

Simply include a parent name and a good phone number for us to contact. 
4. If NONE of your children has ever been seen by our practice, please register here to create an account and join our waiting list. We will contact you as space becomes available. 
Thank you for your interest!
Meet our patient Elle who is 4 years old and wants to be a doctor some day. Her parents have a "3 jar" method of distributing allowance money. One jar is for spending, one jar is for saving and the 3rd jar is for donating. Elle decided she wanted to donate her money to her doctors so we can keep helping people. Thank you so much Elle!

We are getting lots of calls about how to prevent, remove and deal with ticks. The CDC has lots of great information and for more, check out what Dr. Kressly has to say: 
Many of our patients have told us that they heard information about Miralax on the news. They had some questions and were looking for our feedback. Dr. Kressly published some guidance for you to view. 
We are looking for a few volunteers to serve on our Medical Home Advisory Council, ideally some teens and some parents/caregivers. If you are interested, please log on to your portal account and send Dr. Kressly a message indicating your interest. Thank you!
Please note: Insurance companies are now requiring patients to know which lab is preferred. Please tell us if we are doing a throat or skin culture and make sure you go to the correct lab for bloodwork or you will be responsible for the bill.
If you have a child planning to play middle school or high school sports, bring your PIAA form with the completed parent sections to the office now, before the back-to-school rush.
