Welcome to Discovery Pediatrics

Discovery Pediatrics is a Silver Spring, Maryland pediatric practice. We see patients from birth until they graduate from college. Click here to learn more about us.

There are two pediatricians in our practice – Robin Madden, M.D. Ph.D., and Ben Gitterman, M.D. You may choose either one of our pediatricians, and after selecting a doctor, all appointments will be with that physician unless he/she is not in or you choose to switch to another physician in the group. Check-ups should be scheduled as far in advance as possible, preferably the child’s birth month. We can usually arrange a sick visit on the same day.

We are open DAILY (365 DAYS A YEAR)!!   -  Mon-Fri: 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.   -  Saturday: 8 :30 a.m. – noon   -  Sun/Holiday: Urgent care only – Call between 8:30 a.m. & 9:00 a.m. for an appointment

*Due to the COVID-19 emergency we have suspended Saturday and Sunday hours until further notice.*


***Discovery Pediatrics, along with the American Academy of Pediatrics, strongly recommends that well-child visits continue during the COVID-19 pandemic. We do not want to see delays in your child’s vaccinations, appropriate screenings  and delays in anticipatory guidance assuring optimal health.

We are prepared to ensure all newborns, infants, children, and adolescents are up to date on their exams and vaccines. Please call the office to schedule an appointment.
