Dundalk Pediatric Associates
My children have been cared for by Dundalk Peds for over 8 years, and I highly recommend this practice, especially now that they moved to a much larger, modern facility. I particularly appreciate the walk-in sick-call Saturday hours, and if you call to speak to a doctor, the doctor calls back the same day. The other poor reviews seemed based on personal instances that don't actually reflect how well run this practice is and how excellent the doctors are.

Leomina Escalante DR
I had recently changed from Dundalk Pediatrics to Dr. Escalante. The difference is astounding. The Doctor and the Office Staff is so much more professional and caring. I have only praises for them.
Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
