Gaithersburg pediatricians and midwives

Just moved to Kentlands in Gaithersburg, and ISO a pediatrician for my 2yo. I prefer a laid back approach, not too crunchy but not too quick to prescribe antibiotics. Breastfeeding friendly. Willing to space out, but not skip, vaccinations.


Also, looking for a midwife to deliver either at a birthing center or hospital. And if there are any hospitals that are more natural birth friendly than others with a lower c section rate.

  • We use dr Fusner in Kensington with Kensington pediatrics. They are laid back and open to alternate vaccines etc but always do the recommended ones as a rule first. I really like her and the nurse practitioner. It's a small practice so they really know you.

    Shady grove is working on the mom baby friendly certification and I was really happy with them. There is a group of midwives who work there. I don't think midwives are at any of the other hospitals close by. You'd have to go to gw hospital downtown for another group. If you decide to use a doctor dr renzi at capital women's care is the best doctor I have ever been to and I hear that from a his patients.

  • We used Midwifery Care Associates with our last pregnancy and now current one. They have offices at White Flint, also in Frederick. They deliver at Shady Grove--we loved it there and found it to be very friendly to natural approaches and rooming in, etc. I highly recommend both MCA and Shady Grove.

  • Our 18 mo has been going to Dr. Hirsch in Rockville since he was born. Dr. Hirsch works alone so you always know he's who you'll see, which I love. He's a big fan of breastfeeding, but pretty laid back to make his suggestions and let you as the parent do what you feel is best. We love him!
