About
JDC is currently accepting newborns into the practice. However, so that we can continue to offer our existing patients the care and attention that they deserve, JDC is no longer accepting families with existing children who wish to transfer their care from another practice. This will remain in effect until further notice.
Text4baby is a free* health information service delivered on your mobile phone, to help keep you and your baby healthy. JDC Pediatrics recommends this app, which will give you access to well-visit information, a personalized vaccination tracker, and appointment reminders. Click here for sign-up info.
Does your child always seem to have some kind of form or another to be completed? He may or may not need to be seen, depending on the type of form. Click here to find out what you will need to do.
The flu vaccine for the 2017-18 flu season is now available at JDC Pediatrics. We recommend that all children ages 6 months through 18 years receive this vaccine. Please call our office to schedule an appointment. Click here for more info on the flu vaccine.
The American Accademy of Pediatrics (AAP) is advising parents to stop giving fruit juice to children in the first year of life, saying the drink is not as healthful as many parents think. Click here for more info and age-group recommendations for fruit juice.
Previously the HPV vaccine was given as a 3-dose series for all eligible-aged children. Now only 2 doses are recommended for children age 9 through 14, with the doses separated by at least 6 months. Children who begin HPV vaccination at 15 years of age and older will still need 3 doses. We will send a reminder call to you when your child is due for their next dose.

Our Doctors


Robert L. Coldren, MD (Retired)


Dr. Coldren was born and raised in Berks County, PA; educated at Albright College in Reading and Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia. He came to Harrisburg in 1969 to serve his internship and residency in pediatrics at Polyclinic Hospital. He served in the United States Air Force for two years before joining Doctors James Jones and James Daly in 1974. Early in his practice he pursued an interest in diabetes management, which continues to this day. He served as Medical Director of the Harrisburg Diabetic Youth Camp for over 25 years. Dr. Coldren is well into his second generation of patients and feels privileged to be a part of the lives of these families. He takes great pleasure in watching children grow up and listening to the things they have to say. Out of the office, he loves his time spent on Cape Cod with his family where sunny days will find him working in his gardens or walking along the shore. Dr. Coldren retired in 2009 on his birthday, August 12th. He is well-missed by all.
