Dr. King's bio

This content was provided by Dr. King "I have been practicing Pediatrics in Burlington County since 1981 and still enjoy coming to work every day. My wife and I have raised 3 daughters and now have 2 grandchildren. I am especially proud that my youngest daughter is following me into Pediatrics. In my spare time I enjoy playing golf and tennis and traveling."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. King "In our office we take a flexible approach to most issues recognizing that there is no one right way to raise a child.  We provide friendly, personalized care. During the day, the phone is answered by a person not a machine. We pride ourselves on our availability. Phone calls are returned promptly, and we do not go home until all calls are returned.  If there is an acute problem that needs same day attention, those appointments are available. We will bend over backwards to help parents to help their children but certainly will never compromise when the health and welfare of a child is at risk.  That being said, we strongly believe that all children should be vaccinated according to the recommended schedules.

We all enjoy doing what we're doing- helping children and families, and that attitude is readily apparent in our office."

Reported a problem that my daughter and I were having with one of the doctors at this same location.

I could not believe I...more
