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.
