HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!
We are dedicated to providing the highest quality pediatric care for our patients. Our doctors have over 130 years of combined experience in pediatrics. Although we have been in practice since 1979, we continue to stay up-to-date on the latest pediatric information. Our doctors have been recognized by Washingtonian Magazine every year since 1980. Most of all, we listen to you and provide personalized care in a friendly, courteous environment.
We are currently closed to new patients, however we continue to accept newborns. Call 703-435-3636 to schedule an appointment. For first-time parents, call to schedule a free evening orientation class.
We have extended our hours during weekdays to 6:00 PM. In addition, for our current patients, we have a Minor Illness Clinic, five days a week, from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM. Patients who come in between those hours will be seen on a first come-first served basis. As the name implies, this clinic is for new, acute problems only. If your child has an chronic problem (over 2 weeks), we request you make an appointment so we can allocate sufficient time with you and your child. Please make an appointment if your child has a head injury or concussion. If your child is less than 2 months of age, we would prefer you schedule an appointment rather than attend the Minor Illness Clinic. We do not want to expose your newborn to any infectious diseases.
We are also available on Saturday mornings for urgent problems which need attention before Monday. Please try to call the after hours urgent line after 8 am on Saturday morning. Leave an urgent message and the Triage Nurse will return your call to help set up an appointment if necessary.
