Pediatric Associates of Springfield
“We understand that kids differ from adults — they have their own health care needs that require special skills, attention and patience. At Pediatric Associates of Springfield, our priority is to provide the best individualized care and to foster trust through open communication. We empower parents and patients with practical and evidence-based knowledge so they can take control of their own health and happiness.”
Creating an inclusive, safe and caring environment is at the heart of everything Pediatric Associates of Springfield does as a medical practice. They have served the Northern Virginia area for over 30 years. Doctors and staff commit fully to providing exceptional and compassionate medical care for children, starting from the moment they are born to the time they enter young adulthood. Their practice is LGBTQ-friendly and a safe space for transgender individuals.
All physicians at Pediatric Associates of Springfield are board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics. They have decades of experience combined. Every doctor has had extra training in treating behavioral and mental health.
During the pandemic, families have been pushing aside all kinds of medical priorities, from routine physicals and vaccines to significant mental/emotional health problems. “After over a year of virtual learning, we have been seeing a significant increase in weight gain of 20 to 30 pounds. Equally alarming is the spike in cases of anxiety and depression,” says Dr. Jacqueline Hoang. “The pandemic has put children at greater risk for type two diabetes, high cholesterol, asthma and Vitamin D deficiency.”
Schools will likely re-open this fall and team sports will resume. By making sure children are up to date with annual checkups or sports physicals and vaccines early this summer, parents can avoid the last-minute rush causing delay in school re-entry or participation in team sports. All patients and parents can rest easy knowing that the practice follows safe COVID protocols. Alternatively, parents may set up tele-medicine visits with a doctor to discuss any concerns they may have.
