Choosing a pediatrician you are comfortable with and trust is one of the most important steps you can take to protect your child's health. Our pediatricians and family practitioners take the time to discuss medical and development issues with you and answer all your questions. We are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In the unlikely event that your child needs hospitalization, we refer to The Johns Hopkins Hospital, ranked among the top pediatric centers in the country, or to the hospital of your choice.
** Vaccine Statement **
We firmly believe that all children and young adults should receive all of the recommended vaccines according to the schedule published by Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Because we are committed to protecting the health of your children through vaccination, we strongly recommend that all of our patients be vaccinated unless there is a medical contraindication determined by the clinical provider. Delaying or refusing vaccines goes against expert recommendations and goes against our medical advice as providers at Johns Hopkins Community Physicians.
