Welcome to Advocare Fairmount Pediatrics!

We are a community-based Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine practice established in Philadelphia in 2009 and in Montgomery County in 2023. Our goal is to provide excellent, accessible, comprehensive medical care to infants, children and teens in our community, from all types of families. We care for young people from birth through their 21st year.

Our philosophy is threefold:
  1. Excellent medical care is our top priority. We maintain thorough and up-to-date standards of care in all that we do.
  2. Communication is paramount. We strive to keep open, clear lines of communication with parents and with children in our practice.
  3. Parents matter. In all that we do, we seek to support our patients’ parents, providing you with the services you need to care for your child.
The program at Fairmount Pediatrics and Fairmount Pediatrics Montgomery County includes a unique offering: the Affiliate Program, in which a variety of providers care for patients on-site, within each office. These providers include a physical therapist, a speech therapist, a behavioral therapist, a psychologist, a lactation counselor, and a nutritionist. These offerings do not replace high quality pediatric care, but rather add to it, offering a truly holistic approach to health.

FPAM to Resume and Expand Support Groups 

Great news, families! 

FPAM offers a range of in-person groups for children ages 5-17! We are excited to add a social worker to our team, Sonya Lopez, MSW, M.S.Ed., who facilitates these groups on-site.  

Is a support group the right fit for my child?  

Does your child have big emotions? Are they sensitive to transition or change? Do they often worry or find it difficult to express how they feel? Or has their spirited nature made it tricky for them to navigate choices while learning and playing? If any of these questions feels relevant to your family, email slopez02@advocaredoctors.com to confirm your interest in an in-person support group at FPAM! 

How could my child benefit from a support group with peers? 

A support group at FPAM can help your child with developing social and emotional skills in a safe, structured, and affirming environment. Through activities and play, your child can learn and practice strategies for emotional regulation, distress tolerance, conflict management, interpersonal relationships, and more! Upon completion of a group cycle, your child will have the tools they need to soothe their thoughts, calm their body, and engage with the world around them. 

For children of any age, building and reinforcing these skills is helpful in managing stressful behaviors, but it’s also essential in shaping a robust sense of self and self-esteem! 

Where will groups take place and how much will they cost? 

Groups will be offered on-site at both the Philadelphia and Montgomery county offices based on enrollment. All groups offered on a sliding-scale basis and may be eligible for reimbursement through insurance.  

If you have more questions about how these services could work for your child(ren), please reach out to Sonya Lopez at slopez02@advocaredoctors.com. Group offerings will be customized based on interest, so all inquiries and requests will be taken into consideration. 

Philadelphia office every Tuesday, 10:30-11:30 am. Montco office, every Thursday, 10-11
Please sign up on the website, or use the paper sign-up sheet at the front desk or call the office to sign up. The group will only run if there are at least three moms signed up by the day before. We will call or text to let you know if it is running each week. Bring the baby hungry to the group so you can weigh before and after nursing. The cost is $15, payable with cash or check.
