SVPAM Welcomes Dr. Sherwat Abdelrahman to the SVPAM family (Posted 6/18/19)

SVPAM is pleased to welcome Sherwat Abdelrahman, MD to the SVPAM family! Dr. Abdelrahman will complete her pediatric residency at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh this fall and will start seeing patients in our offices in early in 2020. She has previously completed a neuropsychiatry residency and has particular interest in neurology and psychiatry.

We are excited for all of you to meet her!

Dr. Hennessey’s Retirement Draws Near (posted 3/22/19)

As most of you know, Dr. Hennessey was set to retire 12/31/18, but stayed on to give our new providers time to settle in to life at SVPAM. We are very grateful and we know that many of you expressed the same sentiment.
Dr. Hennessey is now ready to move forward with his retirement. His last day at SVPAM will be Wed April 24, 2019. For those of you who have appointments scheduled with him after that date, you will be receiving a call from one of our staff members in the coming weeks to reschedule your appointment. We will make every attempt to accommodate anyone who wants a final visit with Dr. Hennessey, but can not guarantee availability. Our other providers are available and excited to get to build relationships with you and your children.

Please join us in wishing Dr. Hennessey a healthy, relaxing and well-deserved retirement after serving SVPAM families for the past 33 years!

I will be collecting well wishes and messages from families who take a moment to detail thanks and special memories. Please send messages to me via email by April 19, 2019 to liz.yankello@svpam.com.

A MESSAGE TO OUR FAMILIES FROM DR. HENNESSEY AND DR. GRAFF

October 1, 2018

To our SVPAM family,

As we extend our sincere thanks & heartfelt best wishes to both Susan Pointer and Dr. Kaniecki as they depart SVPAM in the coming weeks, we are very excited to reintroduce our next generation of SVPAM providers!

Drs. Ceccarelli & Munroe, CRNP’s Susan Mihaljevic & Jennifer Schaefer, along with Rachel Sullivan,PA-C , collectively have 58 years of pediatric primary care experience!  They are very pleased to join Drs. Hennessey, Graff, Schwartz & Johnson in upholding the high-quality pediatric standards that SVPAM is known for in this region and that you have come to expect & deserve.

We are excited & look forward to continuing our relationships with all of you who have been part of the “SVPAM family” for so many years.  We look forward to getting to know those transitioning from other practices, those who have been here to see Dr. Kaniecki & Susan Pointer predominantly, and those new parents just starting families and joining SVPAM.

SVPAM’s history has been blessed with outstanding providers and SVPAM’s future continues along that path as we remain true to our Vision “to be the community leader in delivering complete healthcare services to our pediatric/adolescent patients in a medical home environment.”

We look forward to our continued partnership with you to care for your children!

Sincerely,

Dr. David Hennessey & Dr. Daniel Graff

Dear SVP families,

As some of you may or may not know, I sent my baby off to college this fall. My two older boys will also be graduating this spring, my eldest from medical school and the other from college. I cannot believe how quickly the time has gone and how they are rapidly moving towards independent lives.

After careful deliberation, I have decided to make a change in my life as well. I will be joining Akron Children’s Hospital in January of 2019, to help grow their Boardman practice. This position will allow me the opportunity to become more involved in community service as well as have more time to travel to see my children. I have dedicated over 13 years of my life, more than half my practicing career, to Sewickley Valley Pediatrics, so I will very much miss being here. My goal in practice has always been to treat everyone’s child as I would my own. This made my decision to relocate even more difficult as I felt as though I were leaving my own children.

I have cared for some of your children from the day they were born and others in childhood, through their teenage years and then young adulthood. I have loved all the wonderful families and I truly appreciate the trust you have placed in me to help you navigate through parenthood. Over the years I have learned as much from you as I hope you have learned from me.

My wish is that my patients will be able to build strong, ongoing relationships with one of my wonderful partners and associates at Sewickley Valley Pediatrics. I am happy to help anyone connect with one of the other providers to ensure a smooth transition around my departure.   I will truly miss all the people Sewickley Valley Pediatrics has brought into my life – my partners, our associates, the wonderful nurses and staff, the parents and caregivers.  Most of all, the children who made each day special ~ I will truly miss seeing the little ones grow up and the older ones finding their way, the puberty talks, the laughs, the hugs, the spit ups and drool.

Wishing everyone a future of health and happiness,

Vida Kaniecki, MD
