Our Mission

At MedStar Franklin Square Pediatrics in Perry Hall, we believe that the highest quality of care for infants, children, and adolescents should be compassionate, comprehensive, coordinated, and family centered.

Ideal care should be easily accessible and delivered by a team of providers who are trained to manage all aspects of pediatric care. The relationship between the doctors and the family must foster mutual trust and responsibility for the physical, mental, and social well-being of children. Read testimonials from real patients

Care you can trust

Your health and safety are always our top priority. Here's what you can expect from an in-office visit:

  • Face masks required for everyone, regardless of symptoms
  • Frequent disinfecting and cleaning of public spaces and exam rooms, including after every clinical visit
  • Staggered appointments to minimize people in a given area
  • Screening all patients and visitors for symptoms upon arrival
  • Physical distancing with floor markers and reconfigured waiting areas
  • Sanitizing stations throughout the facility


  • Preventive care including well-child visits, immunizations, growth and development assessment, appropriate screening tests, and counseling patients and parents on health and behavioral issues.
  • Same day sick appointments.
  • Care for acute illnesses and injuries.
  • Referral and coordination of sub-specialty care.
  • Evaluation and management of children's developmental issues, including learning disabilities and behavior problems using a comprehensive approach.
  • Unique Internet-based assessment and support system.
  • Free weekly parent support group to discuss behavioral, development, and family adaptation.
