My son's pediatrician is Dr. Bland who is now with Primary Pediatricians. I chose Dr. Bland because he was my pediatrician when I was a child. On our first newborn visit to Dr. Bland in the Silver Spring office, I found so many people that I knew in the community that were also going to see Dr. Bland. We have also unfortunately had to go to the emergency room on a couple of occassions since my son has been born. When we were there, I couldnt count the number of times that Dr. Bland's name was called. He cares for so many of the children in the metro area. I have experienced nothing but quality and efficient care from primary pediatrics. I have since referred at least two other families to Dr. Bland as well, and have heard no complaints so far. Whenever my son needs to be seen for an immediate concern, primary pediatrics have been able to see him right away...even on sundays! This office has regular business hours as well as after hours. If you call to the office outside of business hours and leave a message, a doctor will be sure to get back with you. We have also seen other doctors in the practice when we have gone in for after hours clinic. These doctors are also very caring, compassionate and competent. I highly recommend primary pediatrics for your child's pediatric care. Even more so I recommend Dr. Bland. He was a great pediatrician for me, and is great with my son as well.
