Founded in 1963, the providers of Virginia Pediatric and Adolescent Center have been caring for the children of northern Virginia through multiple generations.

Our goal is to foster the growth, health, and happiness of your child. We care for children from infancy through college, and we take pride in treating them with compassion in a non-hurried and nurturing environment. We care for the whole child--meaning that we give both illness-related and preventative care--while tending to the physical, emotional and social developmental needs of each child in the context of self, family, and the broader community.

About Us: About


Our providers deliver the most up-to-date health care, keeping in touch with the latest trends in pediatrics.

We look forward to developing a strong relationship with you and your child as we help guide and support you as he or she grows from a fully-dependent newborn to a capable young adult.

About Us: Projects


Our practice has 2 locations: Fair Ridge and Springfield. Our electronic medical record enables our providers to access your child's records and care for your child in both locations.

Most of our providers spend the majority of their time in one location to provide continuity of care. Below is a list of where our providers spend the majority of their time.
