Virginia Ladies...

Do you have any recommendations for a pediatrician in the Virginia Beach area? It's about time that we started looking, and I'm clueless! If anybody has one that they like, I'd love to hear about it! Thanks in advance! :)

  • We see Pediatrics Specialists but they're in the Norfolk/Chesapeake area. 
  • Out of curiosity are you Prime?  I am being seen for the pregnancy at Portsmouth but would like to be able to pick my own pediatrician when LO is born but was told I would just get assigned a doctor at Portsmouth when he is born.  Just curious what other were told...

     I was told the same thing about pediatricians. I'm on Prime.

  • If you are on prime, I loved Dr. Marchlewski at Boone Clinic (JEB Little Creek).

    I'm on Standard. So, as far as I know, I have to find a pediatrician. I guess I didn't even think about calling Portsmouth about one!

    When  I gave birth to my second I switched to Standard because I wanted to run far, far away from delivering at Portsmouth but both of my children are (and always have been) on Prime.  I submitted a request to have my children seen by a civilian provider but remain on Prime.  It does take some hoops to jump through and you have to give justification for your request but it's not impossible. 
  • Thanks so much everyone! :)
