Abdow Friendship Pediatrics is a full service children’s health resource serving the community of Rockville, Maryland, and the surrounding region. Under the leadership of Victor Abdow Jr., MD, Azra Jagani, MD, and Amita DeSouza, MD, the practice has earned a reputation for excellence. 

From newborn care to well child visits, preventive health is a cornerstone of the practice. Everyone on the team shares a dedication to promoting healthy habits, beginning as soon as patients can communicate. Specialized exams are also available as needed. 

When something goes awry, Abdow Friendship Pediatrics is there to help. Sick visits offer a chance to immediately create a path toward relief, and injury care is also an essential service. Kids who experience mental health or behavioral health issues can also find the assistance and support needed. 

Having an in-house endocrinologist on staff makes it easy to offer Screening and treatment and enhances diagnostic abilities. Physicians perform blood draws as needed, and the staff can run many lab tests in-office. We also offer allergy testing in house.

Virtual visits are an outstanding option for kids who have compromised immune systems or otherwise prefer to be seen outside of a traditional office visit and are often available on demand. Same-day appointments and after-hours care are also options for urgent care needs. 

Best of all, the physicians at Abdow Friendship Pediatrics are happy to see other family members, regardless of age, when insurance rules allow for services like travel clearance. It can also come in very handy when multiple family members are ill. 

Booking a visit at Abdow Friendship Pediatrics is as simple as a phone call or a few moments online. The practice is currently accepting new patients.

The ease of appointment booking and the personalized touch that all of the staff at Abdow pediatrics display is truly remarkable. We came from a bigger practice that did not feel as intimate as Abdow pediatrics. It also helps to know that Dr. Abdow had been our family pediatrician for years for all of my husband's family. He is a trusted, compassionate and very personable doctor. We feel truly fortunate to have him as our physician.

We just had our second visit with Dr. DeSouza and loved the services she provided to both of my children who have hyperthyroidism. Dr. DeSouza took her time to get to know us, answered our questions and we felt very well taken care of. She knows how to make kids feel comfortable and she's quickly became their favorite endocrinologist. We've moved in the past 5 years, have had several endocrinologists and Dr. DeSouza is at the top of their list for favorite doctors!
