Fall 2015

We are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for our patients. We combine thirty-five years experience with the most up-to-date practices. Our doctors have been recognized by Washingtonian Magazine every year published since 1980. Most of all, we listen to you and provide personalized care in a friendly, courteous environment.

We are currently accepting newborns.  Call 703-435-3636 to schedule an appointment. For first-time parents, call to schedule a free evening orientation class. Our practice is closed to older patients for the summer. 

We have upgraded our patient portal. We hope you find it even more helpful to communicate with us, request and manage appointments, refill medications, view lab results, and much more. Your old password will not work on the new portal. At your child's next appointment, you will receive a welcome message via email containing log-in information. Here is a link to ourPatient Portal.

Extended hours. We have extended our hours weekdays to 6PM. In addition, we have a walk-in clinic, five days a week, 8AM to 9AM. Current patients only. New patients please call to schedule an appointment.

Welcome to our new Pediatric Nurse Practitioners Meghan Edwards, MSN, FNP-BC and Katherine Major, MSN,CPNP. You may already know them from their training at our office or from their work at Inova Fairfax Hospital for Children. We will miss Carolyn Rosa who is returning to work as a hospital nurse practitioner.

Visit us on Facebook for up to the minute office news and advice.

Fall is for flu vaccination.  This year's influenza vaccine so far looks like a better match for the circulating flu virus than last year's. We will announce when we have influenza available here on this page, as well as on Facebook.

Did you know? We are available on Saturday mornings for same-day sick appointments. Call our nurse on the after hours number and leave a message and we will call you back to set up an appointment.

We have gone electronic! Our new Electronic Health Record system was developed by Children's National Medical Center and is used by over 50 pediatric offices in the Washington metro area. It will communicate directly to phamacies, specialists, hospitals, and laboratories to improve patient care.

Really Good Parenting Advice Website.  You really should visit healthychildren.org, the new parenting website from our Academy of Pediatrics.  Click on 'Links' at left to check it out.  There is also a new symptom checker which is very good.  The link is in 'Patient Education' at left.

Telephones. Our regular telephone hours for advice, appointments, and administrative matters is from 8:00 AM to 12:30 PM, and again after lunch from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM.  If you have a routine question, use our secure patient portal.

For current patients creating an account, a few important tips:
 * Do not create an account for the parents, only accounts for each child individually.
 * Create your first child’s account.  You will be asked to complete a demographics page.  Have insurance card information ready.  It will take about 10 minutes.
 * Next, after you create your first child’s account, go to “My Patient Page” and click on “manage my family account”.  You will then choose to add another dependent and create accounts for each of your other children.  We will ask for a separate login/password for each child, but the accounts are linked so you will only need to use your first child’s login/password for all of your children’s accounts.
 * When you wish to use the site to make a request, notice that your first child’s login/password that you used to login is the 'myself' listed under “Active Account”.  Use the drop down menu to change active account from myself to any other of your children for whom you wish to make a request.

*Please complete all required fields otherwise we will not be able to print it out prior to your visit.
