My kids have been with Bethesda Pediatrics since birth and I loved the former physician/owner Dr. Garcia, but I equally love the current physician Dr. Gomez. She is very caring and great with my kids. We saw Dr Jacks a few times and he was ok, however he is no longer there. I am very happy with Dr. Gomez and feel she definitely is there to help and provides excellent medical care to my children. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to friends and family.

Well I believe it is not someone I would confide my health. I went there with a friend and I had to tell this man to examine my friend, read the X-rays we had, he just kept saying is OK I am not a specialist but it is OK. Practically had to tell him what to do . So how can you trust someone you have to push to examine the patient and check the tests

Dr Horton is FANTASTIC!! When we went for my little guy's check up and kept walking over and hugging Dr. Horton. It was the sweetest thing. He takes his time to listen, answer questions and I never feel rushed and his medical assistant is a sweet heart and the rest of the staff is very friendly. Highly Recommend Them All!!

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.
