Our Staff


We are privileged to have a group of highly skilled Registered Nurses with extensive experience in all aspects of pediatric care.


The administrative office staff consists of our practice manager, insurance/billing manager and receptionists. Our front desk staff will help you schedule routine examinations as well as consultation visits. They can also help you with questions concerning billing, payment or insurance.​


Payment for Services


The Pediatric Care Center participates with some insurance plans. If you have a question or need information about these plans, please contact the billing office (301) 564-5887. If we do not participate with your insurance, we will, at that time of payment, give you a universal claim form that you can submit to your carrier for reimbursement. For your convenience, checks, cash, Visa , MasterCard, American Express and Discover are accepted.


It is important that you notify us of any change in address, telephone number or insurance so that we can give you proper documentation.


Insurance Participation


Which insurance plans does the PCC participate with at this time?


The PCC participates in several insurance plans. For a current list, please contact our office. If you would like our assistance when speaking with your employer about obtaining insurance through these plans, we would be happy to help you. For any insurance questions, please contact our insurance/billing coordinator at

(301) 564-5887.

Why doesn't the PCC participate with more insurances?


The Pediatric Care Center's approach to insurance participation is based on our committment to maintaining quality patient care in a warm and personal setting. In order to maintain the level of in-depth patient care on which we have built our reputation, we have made a conscious decision to take a limited number of managed care plans. By doing so, we can continue to see only a few patients per hour, rather than 6-8 or more. The extra time we are able to spend with you allows us to better meet your needs and affords us greater professional satisfaction in getting to know you and your families.


There is nothing more important to us than the good health and development of your children and your family.


What can I do if I am self-insured or part of a small business?


Certain insurance policies are more favorable than others in terms of reimbursement. Our insurance/billing coordinator can help you with more specific information about these issues.


She can be reached at (301) 564-5887.


Our goal at the Pediatric Care Center is to provide the best possible medical care to your children and your family in today's health care environment.
We look forward to welcoming your family into our family at the Pediatric Care Center.
