Hello! We are relatively new to the area (moved here 4 months ago) and we live in D.C. - We are looking for a pediatrician recommendation for our son - he is 2 years 5 months old.  We moved from Oregon where we had a home birth and pretty low intervention time up until now.  We see that Kensington Pediatrics only accepts newborns so that is out - Any other suggestions?  One other note: We left our car for the year and so need to access the doctor by metro/bus. Thank you in advance so very much!  Best,

Welcome to Mothering! We like Dr. Michelle Barnes Marshall at 2440 M St, NW, Suite 317. She is very near the Foggy Bottom metro station, and not too far from the Farragut stations or Dupont, as well as on/near lots of bus lines. She co-slept with her own children, she is willing to do alternate vaccination schedules, she is very supportive of homebirth, and she is WONDERFUL with our baby. Her phone number is (202) 775-5990. Good luck!

Hello! I'm an Oregon native too. smile.gif


We were lucky enough to have a newborn about the same time we moved to the area, so we're with Kensington Pediatrics. Unfortunately, I don't have any other suggestions, but I just wanted to say hi.
