Our Client Reviews

My kids have been coming here since they were born and we absolutely love them. The doctors are great and the nurses are super nice. We usually get seen in the Keedysville Office and see Dr. Pam and Dr. Van. They’re both great and my kids love them.

Melanie Rose

They have been my childrens pediatrican for their entire lives! Been to another office but it was not the same and I came back! They have the most amazing Dr's, Nurses and staff! Highly recommended!

Erica McCormik

I have been taking my kids here for 14 years and have had great experiences. All of the doctors have always taken the time to listen to any concerns that I have and appropriately address them. Dr. Van is the doctor my kids go to primarily and she has always been fabulous with them. She is very knowledgeable and really knows how to talk to and interact with kids. The staff is great with the kids. I really like that they have evening and weekend appointments because don't always get sick Mon-Fri 9-5 and we've had to go in the evenings and Saturdays before. I've also called after hours before and they've always been very patient and never seemed like I was bothering them when calling in the middle of the night over a concern I was having. I would recommend this office to anyone with kids.

Stephanie Hart

Im a first time momma and I have been super nervous since I left the hospital, worrying if im doing everything right for my baby girl, and our first appointment today calmed my nerves greatly! Dr. Van is very sweet and thorough, and gives you actual facts instead of biased opinions. ( I felt bad because i could no longer breastfeed without using a pump and formula to supplement in between because of pain and scabbing) but she let know that I was doing the right thing for my baby. She is very knowledgeable and patient, this Dr. Knows what she is doing and is experienced! Her staff was very kind and efficient, and also very knowledgeable, you can tell that they love their job and that makes for a very welcoming and safe environment. I highly recommend! 💖💖💖💖💖

Cat Taylor

I have to give unlimited praise and thanks to one of the best pediatricians in the state. Her name is Doctor Van and if it wasn't for her catching/making my son's cancer diagnosis SUPER EARLY then he probably wouldn't be here today. She caught it so early that when I took him to Johns Hopkins and got more blood work done, the oncologist said that if we would have brought him in three days prior to that, his cancer wouldn't have been detected at all. Dr. Van is a saint, and truly truly cares about all children!!! I owe everything to her!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH DR.VAN!!!!

Chad Allen

Great experiences! Yes the building is old, but we met Dr. Passi in the hospital when I had my son and loved her. So we continued to take both our boys there to her. Great bedside manner, she knows what's important, and the best thing is the hours! Open late and weekends in addition to having a call in line (that they answer even if you call 5 separate times a night)! They care about your kids and about making you feel comfortable. Sure they could use a coat of paint but they are great at the important stuff!

Crystal Maguire

This was my pediatrician and now I take my children here. The office has recently undergone the retirement of the founding doctors, Strauss and Keyser, so the staff is new and now much larger. They offer later hours and weekend options. Dr. Massod is wonderful and can perform minor procedures in the office (remove ingrown toenails for example). They have several fantastic nurse practitioners. We never have to wait long and we can always get same day appointment. They also have several locations.


I love them! We can always get appointments when needed. I highly recommend.

Sandy Cuddy

Wonderful doctor's office with amazing staff. Makes my kids feel comfortable and cared for, and not just another body rolling in and out of there. Clean.

Metal Momma

I am so so sad yall are closing the Chambersburg office! Yall have been the best and we're sad to see you go. We can't go to Maryland, due to insurance, so it was a relief to find such caring doctors so close to home. We'll miss you
