Great Resource

From helping you understand your child's symptoms to helping you figure out medication dosage our  IS YOUR CHILD SICK?® tracker is here to help.

UPdates

We are excited to announce that our office will be undergoing renovations in the coming weeks to enhance your experience and improve our facilities. While we work to create a better environment for your care, we want to ensure that your visits remain as seamless as possible.

Urgent appointments:

If you're being seen for a sick appointment, masks are required. If you are being seen on the Urgent side at the Rehoboth office, masks are required for all patients and family that are accompanying (2 years of age and older). Masks are required not only to keep you, our patients safe and healthy, but also our staff so we may continue to serve you.

Well appointments:

Beacon Pediatrics will no longer be requiring masks for our patients on our Well side. Any patient (2 years of age and older) with a fever, cough, or vomiting will be required to wear a mask, and any accompanying family members will also need to wear a mask for our WELL SIDE.

 

If you arrive at the office without a mask, we will give you a mask for a $1 charge. All money collected will be donated to a local children’s charity. If you prefer your provider and staff wear a mask during your visit, please let us know. We are happy to accommodate your request.

Mask policy

Beginning in late June 2024 through September 2024, Dr. Luckenbaugh will be out on maternity leave. We know how important consistent medical care is for your children, so with that we will have Dr. Judith
Gorra stepping in to help while Dr. Luckenbaugh and her family are welcoming their new little one. Dr. Judith Gorra is a knowledgeable and compassionate pediatrician with over 35 years of experience
including having worked with Beacon Pediatrics from 2008 to 2013. If you are comfortable keeping your child’s already scheduled appointment between the months of June and September there is nothing that you need to do at this time. If you would prefer to reschedule your child’s appointment with another pediatrician in the office or with Dr. Luckenbaugh when she returns from maternity leave, please call us at 302-645-8212. Please note that the schedule will fill up quickly.

About Us

ABOUT US

We are a dedicated, dynamic, collaborative, kind, and compassionate group of pediatric providers that proudly provide comprehensive pediatric primary care to newborns through late adolescence. We manage all aspects of well child care as well as most chronic medical conditions and acute problems. Many procedures can be done right in our office including immunizations, sutures, splinting, wart treatments, fluoride varnish, and much more.

 

We utilize the latest technology to streamline the complexities of modern medical care as much as possible. We encourage our families to use our patient portal to communicate with the office, request medication refills, access medical records, and ask questions directly to their provider. We offer online sick visit scheduling, digital check-in, and telehealth video visits when appropriate. We utilize various digital developmental screening tools and health assessment questionnaires, and have connectivity with Delaware’s immunization registry, health records, and newborn screenings.

In addition, although we are an independent practice, we have an excellent relationship with Beebe Healthcare and ready access to specialty care at Nemours Delaware Children’s Hospital.

 

Our patient's safety is of utmost importance to us, so we redesigned our office to minimize the risk of infection.

We no longer have a waiting room! Patients are brought directly from the front entrance to an exam room.

We have separate entrances and areas of the office to see our well and sick children.

 

 

Masks are required in our office for everyone 2 years old and up to protect our most vulnerable patients from COVID-19 and other illnesses, including those that are too young to be immunized or are immunocompromised.

We love taking care of our patients, and look forward to seeing you here soon!

Why a Pediatrician?

Pediatricians are trained to help you achieve healthy lifestyles for your child, offer advice to prevent illness and injuries, provide early and appropriate care of acute illness to prevent its progression, treat life-threatening childhood conditions and guide you in anticipating your child's needs from birth through late adolescence.

As part of our extensive training, pediatricians are experienced in the physical, emotional and social development of children. Children may be too young or shy to talk when they are seen at the doctor's office, and we understand the importance of listening carefully to your child and to you. We do our best to answer your questions or find you the answers and to help you to understand and promote your

child's health and development. We also address issues affecting a child's family and home environment.

Most importantly, we understand that children are not simply small adults. Children often present with different symptoms from adults and may need different prescriptions or treatments too.
