Please welcome a new provider starting January 2018.
Pediatric Associates of Plymouth is proud to announce that we will be adding another nurse practitioner to our practice. We came to know Zachary Hoover while he completed his nurse practitioner rotation with Dr. Gazdick. Zachary’s background as a Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Emergency Room Nurse played an important role in his choice to specialize in pediatric primary care. During his rotation he showed excellent medical judgement with our newborns, toddlers and our young adult patients. Please join us in welcoming Zachary. He will see patients in both our Plymouth Meeting and Collegeville Offices.

To my patients, parents and families of Pediatric Associates of Plymouth,
It is with a great deal of satisfaction, a deep sense of fulfillment, and not a little sadness, that I am writing to inform you that I will be retiring from the full-time practice of pediatrics at the end of June 2016.
It has been my privilege to serve this community since I first came to Plymouth meeting and Trappe as a resident from St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in the summer of 1982. I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to each of you for an amazing 34 years.
You have honored me by allowing me to share in the day-to-day joys and sorrows, tears and triumphs of parenthood with you. You placed your confidence in me, trusting that together we would make the right decisions regarding your children’s health and well-being.
Over the years you also celebrated with me as I got married, enabled me to balance work and family life with three children, supported me through illness and recovery. Together, we have raised a generation of remarkable young people, and it has been such a blessing in my career to have a “second-generation club” of former patients who now bring their little ones to me for care. I truly could have not asked for more as a primary-care pediatrician.
I know that your children will continue to receive excellent care from my partners at PAP. I wish you all good health in the coming years, and happiness in your roles as parents and grandparents. As I move on to a future of family time, travel, volunteer service and continued child advocacy, I will never forget all the kindnesses you have shown me over these many years.
With great affection and gratitude,
