About Us

Since 1982, Chesapeake Pediatrics has been committed to being advocates for the healthcare and wellbeing of young people from birth through young adulthood. Preventive medicine and health screening are a major focus of our practice along with giving advice and providing solutions to the challenges that parents face in raising a child in our world’s changing environment.
