East West Pediatrics welcomes you!
At East West Pediatrics, we offer comprehensive care for Infants, children and adolescents. Conveniently located in Madison Park a short distance from Baltimore Washington Medical Center, our courteous and knowledgeable staff works hard from first contact to make every visit to our office a positive one.
Our shared goal is to guide your child on a path of optimal health. In order to attain this, we continuously strive to meet and exceed our patients' expectations while maintaining the highest standards of excellence in pediatric medicine. From prenatal visits and preventive care to treatments of acute illnesses and the ongoing treatment of chronic conditions, East West Pediatrics offers exceptional, compassionate medical care for children from infancy through adolescence.
We want our patients' families to be informed about their child's health issues and treatments, because informed parents make better decisions about their child's health and wellbeing. That is why we've included a section on this website covering common topics associated with pediatric care, prevention and treatment. We encourage you to look through these pages whenever you have an interest or concern related to your child's health.
We also know that convenience is important to your selection of a pediatrician in Glen Burnie. In these web pages, you will find information about East West Pediatrics' office, including our location, maps, directions, hours, insurance policies and appointment scheduling. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have or to request and appointment. We hope that you find that our office offers the accessibility and personal commitment your family looks for in a pediatrician.
News and Announcements -COVID-19
We know that many people have concerns surrounding the Coronavirus (Covid-19). We are seeing sick patients via telemedicine and screening those who may need to be seen in person. If you are experiencing a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, please call the office for instructions. Please do not come into the office. Our staff will triage your symptoms over the phone to determine the appropriate course to treat you and keep your loved ones and others around you safe.
As recommended by the Maryland Department of Health, we are continuing to do well checks for children of all ages to make sure that they are staying up to date on their vaccines and to check their general health.
COVID-19 TESTING- We are able to do PCR testing for COVID at the office. Results are available in 48 hrs.
In these stressful times please be patient with the doctors and staff. We are in uncharted territory and our entire practice, from the front staff to the medical staff, are under significant stress. Please have some extra patience as we all work through this unique time together. We ask that everyone be understanding of the fact that our providers are accepting extra risk to themselves to continue to care for your children. All patients and parents are asked to wear a mask while in the office and not to remove it during the entire visit unless asked to do so.One of the encouraging aspects of this pandemic is the continued evidence that children are doing very well. Their symptoms are usually minimal with very rare progression to more severe disease. Finally, please understand that we are all responsible for each other’s well being. Our collective effort to ‘flatten the curve’ is critical. This cannot be overstated. Now is the time to stay home, wash hands, and maintain social distancing. We are at an inflection point and individual choices can have a dramatic effect on other people’s lives. Together, we will get through this! Click here for Parent Resources
