Recent News: Covid Vaccine

We are excited as you are about the FDA approval of Pfizer's COVID19 vaccine for the 12 and up.

We are hopeful and expect to have the vaccine in our office to administer to patients and family members. We are waiting for shipments to be allocated to our practice. When we get a notice that we are receiving vaccines, we will notify all eligible patients. In the meantime please send us an email if you want to be added to our waiting list. Stay tuned for more information!

We are a small pediatric practice located in the Friendship Heights neighborhood of Chevy Chase, Maryland. Being committed to providing your children with the best medical care, we are prepared to treat common and complex illness, as well as to nurture healthy growth and development. The pediatricians at Friendship Pediatrics are devoted to your child from birth to adulthood.

About the Patient Portal:

You can view your child's lab results, immunization record, visit summaries and update demographic information (phones, address, email) on the portal. You can communicate with our office staff securely about non-urgent medical and administrative needs. Please call the office if you wish to use the portal. You will need to sign up with your email address.

History of the Practice:

In 1988, Leah Brasch, MD and Linda Goldstein, MD started the practice at our present location under the name of Brasch and Goldstein. We adopted our current name in 2009. We met during residency training and have been friends and colleagues since. As the practice grew, we have always had one or two other pediatricians work with us. Drs. Shreelata Durbhakula joined us in 2008 and Dr. Mariko O'Byrne joined us in 2016.

Both Dr. Brasch and Goldstein have been named multiple years in the Washingtonian Magazine Top Doctors, Best Pediatrician by Bethesda Magazine in 2011, and more recently Pediatrician of the Year for the Montgomery County Pediatric Society. We are pleased that Shreelata Durbhakula, MD has joined us on the 2016 Washingtonian list.
