Living in PG County, MD: June 2012

Pediatric Group, Crofton MD

One of the most stressful decisions prospective parents face is the choice of their child’s pediatrician.

When I moved to PG County I was very concerned about having to change to a new, local doctor for my children.

A friend of mine recommended The Pediatric Group in Crofton, MD.

I was initially hesitant because I did not like the idea of a group practice.  However, after visiting the office I was instantly convinced.

Though it is a group practice, your child has one regular doctor.  This means that the doctor gets the opportunity to know you and your family very well.  However, the benefit of the group practice means that if your doctor is out for any reason there are other physicians available to see your child.  It also means that you are likely to be able to get your child seen right away if they are ill.

Pediatric Group, Crofton has walk in sick visits in the morning as well as evening and Saturday hours.

My children see Dr. Deborah Gage as their regular doctor and they love her and her staff.  My then 6 year old son even asked the nurse to join us for lunch when we were there earlier this year for pulmonary testing.  I feel very comfortable with her and she is very patient and responsive when dealing with questions.

We have also seen Melissa Zanlunghi on days when Dr. Gage is not scheduled to work.  I have always been very pleased with the care we have received from her as well.

There are several other providers available.

Pediatric Group has 3 locations: 

Crofton Pediatrics

2225 Defense Highway, Crofton MD



Davidsonville Pediatrics

2772 Rutland Road, Davidsonville MD



Severna Park Pediatrics

692-A Ritchie Highway, Severna Park MD



If you are in need of a physician for your children call the Pediatric Group and arrange to visit one of their locations.

Though none of these locations are in PG County, the Crofton location is very convenient to Bowie, Upper Marlboro, Lanham, and other PG County cities.
