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.
It has come to our attention that some families may have received an automated phone call requesting payment on your balance with Discovery Pediatrics. We DO NOT use a third party company to collect balances! Statements are mailed home and if a phone call is warranted, it will come directly from the office and the caller will identify themselves. If you do receive a call, please report it to the non-emergency police at your earliest convenience. Please be cautious!
